Big Question

Niels Jørgen Jensen, Fårup Sommerland, Denmark: “Our guests have really missed the opportunity to be together and spend time together with friends and

family in the park. Ofcourse they missed the trill and action of the rides, but it is our experience that the lack of social encounters and moments with loved ones is what the guests have missed the most about their Fårup Sommerland visit.”

Rilla Engblom, Linnanmäki Amusement Park, Finland: “Linnanmäki By far the park’s nostalgic and the most popular ride, the wooden roller coaster

Vuoristorata which was built in 1951, was the most missed attraction. The newest ride Taiga Launch Coaster has also melted the hearts of the visitors and its wild rides were really longed for. Linnanmäki Amusement Park was founded in 1950 by six child welfare organisations and this year Linnanmäki is celebrating its 70th birthday. Now that the park is open again, all Linnanmäki’s guests are able to support child welfare work while having fun. Through its unique mission Linnanmäki has donated over 120 million euros to child welfare work during its existence.”

Congratulations on opening for the 2020 season. What did your guests miss most about the park while it was closed?

Michael Mack, Europa- Park, Germany: “During this time the fans missed spending fun time together with friends and family, the feeling of adrenalin while

riding a rollercoaster as well as forgetting all of their worries for some time and simply feel free. Sharing a fantastic and memorable experience with others was not possible. The park considers itself lucky to have

reopened again and to be able to welcome national as well as international guests.”

Jenefer Brown, Lionsgate Global Entertainment World, China: “Our one-of- a-kind, personalised immersive virtual experiences and rides like Twilight Saga: Midnight Ride, a

ground-breaking VR motorcycle simulator that encourages interaction with family and friends inside its virtual world, and The Divergent Series Fear Simulator, an open world walkthrough VR experience, were already huge hits at Lionsgate Entertainment World, however after months of being stuck at home in quarantine, demand for our virtual and interactive media-based experiences can’t be understated. The pent-up demand for these attractions is palpable as they offer an opportunity to escape from the real world and its challenges and a journey into the world of our films.”

Aldo Maria Vigevani, CEO Gardaland, Italy: “What our guests missed most of all the possibility to spend a fun and carefree day with their families and friends. The most

adventurous guests also missed the sense of freedom that they can experience on the adrenaline attractions such as Oblivion and Raptor.. During this period, a lot of fans sent messages to Gardaland, they couldn’t wait to come back to the park.

Iliana Rodriguez, Grupo Xcaret, Mexico: “Because everyone was quarantined at home, people craved being in contact with nature. Swimming in an underground

river, walking along a tropical jungle trail and snorkeling in the park’s lagoon, are among the activities our visitors tell us they missed the most. Fresh air, pristine waters and being surrounded by vegetation are the main reasons visitors chose Xcaret as their first trip after lockdown. National visitors also mention they are glad to be back at a park that highlights the pride of being Mexican, and international visitors get to see the best of our country in one place.”
