is no other entrance from outside the
park. Admission prices for both parks
(Warner Madrid and Warner Beach)
range from between 25 to 40 Euros.
Obviously it makes sense at a Parque
Warner water park to have popular
Warner characters on hand, and
Warner Beach is brimming with
cartoon figures from the "Looney
Tunes" series and other characters
including Scooby Doo and The
Flintstones.

für jüngere Badegäste angelegt.

Nachdem Parque Warner Madrid, der
2012 sein zehnjähriges Bestehen feierte, in den letzten Jahren mit rückläufigen Besucherzahlen zu kämpfen hatte,
konnte sich der Park 2013 endlich wieder über einen leichten Besucheranstieg
freuen. Über 100.000 Gäste erwarten
die Verantwortlichen in dieser ersten
Saison im Warner Beach und hoffen darauf, mit ihrem neuen Wasserpark, der
als sechster Themenbereich des Freizeitparks bezeichnet wird, ein zusätzliches attraktives Angebot geschaffen
zu haben und so auch in der laufenden
Saison den leicht positiven Besucherzahlentrend fortsetzen zu können. (JeW)

It's almost like a domino effect is
underway... More and more amusement
parks, especially in Europe, are
supplementing their primary features by
building a water park area or even their
own full blown water parks as second
gates. While indoor adventure pools
have long been a fixture at many holiday
parks, including all of the Center Parcs
operations in Europe or Duinrell in the
Netherlands, the current trend sees most
amusement park operators focusing on
outdoor water park areas.

One example of this development is
Spain's Parque Warner Madrid in
San Martín de la Vega (around 30
minutes by car from central Madrid)
which opened its new Warner Beach
water park this summer (also see EAP
6/2013). The Parques Reunidos group
invested nine million Euros into the
themed water park which covers more
than 30,000 square meters. The water
park is only accessible for visitors to
the amusement park. This means that
Warner Beach, a theme area with water
attractions, similar to the slide park
opened at Avonturenpark Hellendoorn
in 2013 (we reported on this in EAP,
Issue 5/2013), is actually designed
solely as an additional feature for the
amusement park's visitors, and there
Zwar bunt, aber dennoch nicht dem Comic-Thema
des Parks folgend gestaltet sich der Wasserspielplatz für die jüngsten Besucher.

Two Murphy's Waves wave pools, one
for adults and one for children, are
located at the center of the facility. The
area is also home to a large water play
structure with eight slides, two large
water tipping buckets and numerous
water spray effects providing wet,
splashy fun for young and old. The play
structure even has a small integrated
funnel slide. Another of the eight slides
features a "Crystal Clear" element.
This inventive play structure is called
"Agua Aventura" and was supplied
by Dutch manufacturer Van Egdom.
Immediately adjacent to this, a water
playground for babies and toddlers was
installed by Empex Watertoys.
Parque Warner Madrid celebrated
its tenth anniversary in 2012. After
struggling with declining attendance
figures in recent years, the park noted
a slight rise in visitors once again
in 2013. The park's management
anticipates more than 100,000 guests
this season at Warner Beach, the
amusement park's sixth theme area
overall.
