    Paramount Theme Park Murcia Spain

    Well let's try to ignore all the negative remarks from all the comments made by various people! I certainly hope this goes ahead, as it's my opinion it will generate employment that is certainly needed in this area and to all the downers remarks this is an ideal location, the weather is perfect for nearly 365 days a year and there are certainly enough people on this planet to visit and take holidays here! So let's be more positive instead of putting this theme park down all the time. Thank You!

  2. Sorry, am I missing something? Early 2015 is only 6 months away and a brick has not been laid yet?

  4. Posted Sunday, 13 July 2014:

    The Paramount Pictures theme park project has moved forwards following the approval of the second phase of the 'special management plan' by the Ayuntamiento of Alhama de Murcia last week.

    The granting of this license permits Premusa - the promoters and developers of the facility - to move forward with the next phase of construction, expected to take place later this month.

    Premursa have been given 20 days to release full details of the construction work to be undertaken, and for members of the public to raise any objections to this phase of the project, which concerns 223,918 sq mts of the park, to be used for the Hotels and car parking, and is expected to cost 3,014,984 Euros.

    Last week saw news that Premursa had succeeded in obtaining funding from the Regional Incentives board of the EU to the sum of 17Mln Euros, which is expected to keep the facility on schedule for the planned opening in early 2015.

  6. Published today by a local news outlet. This appears to be a desperate move to salvage this park's development. The key statements are that there are currently no investors, thus the project will not move forward in the foreseeable future. Not exactly clear on why the EU would want to invest when no private investors are interested, but perhaps this is a viable kick-start.

    I don't know if it will ever be built but if I had a spare million or two I would certainly invest as I think it is a fantastic project with fantastic prospects. As for some of the comments regarding earthquakes etc, Disneyland is in California which has massive earthquakes and that hasn't done too bad. With the weather in Murcia and the infrastructure I think it is the perfect place for a park of this kind. Anyone who has a million or two they don't want let me know!

  8. Very interesting reading the last post, very negative, but probably correct. It would be nice to have a park nearby, but I am not too bothered either way, I still firmly believe that the local govt should push ahead with this as it would provide stimulus in the local economy, construction jobs and services industry. I also believe that the park could attract enough people to visit as Murcia has nothing like this. Disneyland Paris works and they have crap weather. The area of Murcia has the potential to grow into a popular tourist destination, I am not sure about the comment regarding water supply, but all I know is our water pressure on Condado is better than here in England.

    Paramount Park, Murcia

    Jesus Samper and Pedro Cruz and their friends have travelled the world and failed abysmally looking for foreign investors daft enough to waste their cash on Paramount Theme Park, all this on the extortionate amount of public money given to Premursa by Ramon Valcarcel (a relative of Cruz, who awarded himself a place as a PP minister in the European Parliament in this year's elections - and therefore gaining himself automatic immunity from any future criminal court proceedings!) and his regional government, Paramount Park doesn't have any foreign investment at all for simple reasons that were obvious from the beginning:

    The site of the proposed development in Alhama de Murcia is an arid, ugly desert area far away from anywhere. There is insufficient drinking water to cater for a project of this size. There are no lakes nearby, the rainfall annually is negligible and water has to be brought in via canal from other regions. It's a good distance from the sea and any major beautiful city of interest, railway connections are very poor, and another of Valcarcel's disastrous white elephant mega-projects, Corvera Airport, is still unfinished, unwanted by airline companies, unopened, and with little chance of ever being commercially viable from International travellers income.

    Not one theme park in Spain is financially profitable. All have tried and failed to attract sufficient visitor numbers.
    If any hotels or houses actually ever get built on this site, visitors will have the delights of views and smells of the gigantic El Pozo slaughterhouse and pork products production plant to look forward to. In mid to late June all the farmers in the area spread concentrated chicken poo on their land too- the perfect enticement for people to travel across the globe to spend their holidays. Not! Agriculture and tourism just don't mix. People might be enticed to come to Murcia once after being sucked in by Photoshoped and computer generated publicity, but they won't be deceived to repeat the experience. There is currently no work going on at the site, despite the proclamations of Premursa and the promised opening date of 2015 is pure fiction. Why don't they ever show actual photos of the site? Because they are fully aware that they are lying through their teeth, that's why!

    This part of the Murcia region also has continual seismic activity. Not so long ago the nearby town of Lorca was virtually destroyed in an earthquake that wasn't of particularly great magnitude. The worst damage was done to the newer buildings because the quality of construction was so poor, with negligible security measures built in to the construction. Some of the same bodgers/constructors will obviously be involved in building projects for this proposed project. Another reason to stay well away if you value the safety of your family.

    Over the last ten to fifteen years there have been innumerable cases in Murcia where property purchasers were lied to and cheated by shameless promotors, estate agents, banks, notaries and solicitors who used computer generated images of what planned resorts would look like. The reality was always different once people had paid up front. They unwisely bought properties that were allegedly legal, but turned out to have been built on rustic non-buildable land and have lost all their investment. In some cases people have been fined, had their homes demolished and have returned to their countries of origin totally destitute, while the perpetrators of these hideous, scandalous crimes have got off scot-free and have no shame for what they have done and continue operating as if nothing ever happened.

    In terms of Samper and his team trying to generate interest in Paramount, it is now obvious to all but them that possible investors can smell a rat and don't want to waste their money in a project that will almost certainly fail. But until Samper and his friends have spent all the millions and millions of our taxpayers' money on jollies around the world, bribes and gifts, then no one will call a halt to this folly.
