Parques Reunidos Buys Movie Park Germany

A new park can be added to the already substantial list of parks owned by Parques Reunidos: Movie Park Germany. The company purchased the park from London investment group Palamon, and was the last of the "Star Parks" chain created when Six Flags sold off their European operations in 2004. The park originally opened as Warner Bros. Movie World Germany.

Palamon had invested heavily in the park, adding major rides and attractions which resulted in a 40% increase in attendance. Entire new park areas, such as Nickland and the Santa Monica Pier, were added to expand the property.

Between amusement parks, water parks, FECs, animal parks, and cable cars Parques Reunidos operates almost 70 attractions.
