Also keep in mind that admission was free until March 31st, the day of the Turkish local elections.

Ah, yes, election day. When Erdogan gets an opportunity to review the ballots, I'm sure that the opening of the park will prove important in flipping the unofficial results that have the opposition party winning by 3-4 percentage points to the rightful winner. After all, how could all those people vote for the wrong guy if they were enjoying the 2,117 rides and attractions?

Did my donkey title just change???

Assuming this park is successful enough to break even, I wonder if it and Energylandia will end up competing with each other for having the most roller coasters in one park, much like Cedar Point and Six Flags Magic Mountain did in the 90’s and 2000’s.

I'm also morbidly curious how they're getting that 2,117 number. Of course it's not rides, but even if they're counting stuff like arcade games and such that's still ridiculous. I suppose the simplest answer is "it's a lie" but it's such a specific number lol

So it looks like it's all over for Wonderland Eurasia. I guess they didn't get the 5 million guests they were expecting in the first year!

It's a shame their 2,117 attractions weren't enough.

More than 100 staff have been laid off


Wow, so with 2,117 attractions they had like .04 operators per attraction. Take notes, Great Adventure. Your 2 ops checking a Nitro train are rookie numbers. Trim the fat.

A donkey is a domesticated member of the Equidae or horse family.

Shame, I was hoping the park would hold out long enough to visit one day. I wonder what will happen to the rides.
