Parques Reunidos acquires Dutch theme park Slagharen
POSTED 15 Mar 2012 . BY Tom Walker
Spain-based visitor attractions operator Parques Reunidos has acquired the Slagharen family theme park in Slagharen, The Netherlands.

The 80-hectare (198-acre) Slagharen park, which receives more than 1 million visits a year, is themed according to American history - with a heavy emphasis on the 1850s - and includes four zones: Wild West, Mexico, New Orleans and Yellowstone.

The theme park includes more than 40 attractions and rides - including two roller coasters - and a holiday park with 800 beds, as well as a large retail and food and beverage offering.

Richard Golding, executive chair of Parques Reunidos, said: "The acquisition of Slagharen signifies the extension of our family leisure facilities in a new market, the Netherlands, increasing our presence in Europe.

"Slagharen is a wonderful park and has a long tradition which is very well recognized."

When completed, the deal will increase the number of attractions in Parques Reunidos' portfolio to 72.

The company recently acquired Noah's Ark waterpark in Wisconsin Dells, US, through its US subsidiary Palace Entertainment.
