An additional investment of £ 500 million was made for The Land Of Legends which opened in Antalya in 2016. The amount of total investment reached TL 2 billion. Mr. FETTAH TAMINCE, the chairman of “The Land of Legends” stated that they aimed to receive 1 million visitors in 2018 and added "Our goal is to make cartoons and computer games from the characters here. A total of US$ 1 billion will be invested. The target is to reach 3.5 million visitors annually.
The amount of investment made in “The Land of Legends” built in Antalya in 2016 has reached TL 2 billion. An additional investment of TL 500 million was made for the facility which includes entertainment areas, theme parks, hotels and shopping areas.
This year, the administration aims to host 1 million visitors in the facility which received 550 thousand people last year. The investment in the project is on-going and when it is fully completed a visitor potential of 3.5 million will be in question. However for the total project to be accomplished an additional investment of USD 1 billion is required.
Last year, the facility was rewarded the “Leading Edge” prize by the World Water Parks Association as the best “water park project” on the international scene.
The facility offers over 100 activities and an average of 7 thousand people visited the facility each day during the last season. With the new investment this season, more than 15 thousand people are expected to visit the facility every day.
The Land of Legends is one-of-a-kind sort of project in the region and therefore provides a great added value to the tourism of the country.
As it is the kind of project to diversify tourism products and extend the tourism season we focus on this project in a serious manner. We are now creating 3,000 jobs with our business partners. When all the stages of the project are put in operation, we will have the largest amusement park in Europe and the Middle East, employing 10 thousand people. Our goal is to enlarge the Land of Legends brand by moving it to different points of the world in the coming years. However, we first want to settle our investment in Antalya in the full sense. When our competitors come to see our facilities they are surprised and comment 'We did not expect such a thing in Turkey".
