Zartonk Media reports on the first theme park in Armenia, currently under construction in Yerevan:
The largest amusement park in Armenia is set to open soon. Yerevan Park will become the largest entertainment hub in the region.
Featuring both indoor and outdoor areas, Yerevan Park has in total 25 rides with the right balance between kiddie, family and thrilling attractions. They are from top international manufacturers including Zierer, Vekoma, Zamperla, SBF Visa, Technical Park etc. After conceiving the idea in 2016, the developers have received assistance by various amusement industry experts, including Jeroen Nijpels from Luxembourg-based JNELC.
Regarding the rides, Yerevan Park has in total 4 indoor and outdoor coasters including 2 thrill and 2 family rides. In addition, there is a 40m wheel from Technical Park, enhanced by more than 1600 RGB lights. Moreover, a special single deck 10m carousel from Concept 1900 fulfills the fairy-tale mood.
The founder of the company Garegin Nushikyan has always searched to bring things that were present around the world, but missing in Armenia. This time his vision landed on opening the first theme park in Armenia; opening a large-scale theme park would bring smiles and colors into the lives of people, especially children.
Always having in mind on building a classic fairy-tale park as opposed to creating something modern and futuristic, the goal was to create characters with Armenian roots and something that locals could be proud of and consider “theirs.”
Yerevan Park is in its final stage of construction and both indoor and outdoor areas are planned to be opened in spring 2021.
