Real Madrid Theme Park


An island theme park dedicated to Spain’s Real Madrid football team is set to open in the United Arab Emirates in Janaury 2015.

$1bn (£652m) has been invested in the project, which will include a rollercoaster set over the sea, virtual football, a Real Madrid museum, and a 10,000 capacity stadium for football matches. The park will also include luxury hotels and a residential area complete with 400 apartments and 48 villas.

Real Madrid Island Resort is the latest park to capitalise on a less than traditional theme or inspiration. For more on uniquely inspired theme parks, see Stylus’ thread on Napoleon, Noah & Very Angry Birds and the Thrills, Spills and Dollar Bills report.
