A new theme park based on, Middle-earth created by JRR Tolkien is being created in Rincon de la Victoria, Spain. The theme park will be named La Comarca (The Shire). At the international tourism fair FITUR, the town’s mayor Francisco Salado said:
“The Shire will become one of the major tourism attractions of our town. The material will have a very low environmental impact, to create an integrated image in nature…….It will be a place in which family leisure, sports and nature will go hand-in-hand in a unique space of great beauty set in a time of fairy tales and the magic of the elves. Without a doubt, Rincon de la Victoria will have a top-rated tourist attraction, which will also add to the variety of attractions of Malaga.”
The park is going to be divided into different areas. When you arrive you will be welcomed in Parque Urbano, an area specifically designed for “those who want to enjoy the park without having to walk large distance.”
Zona de Aventura, a different area, will have attractions like climbing walls, hobbit homes, swings and slides, all of which are inspired Tolkien’s stories. The theme park will also feature augmented reality integrated throughout the park. Rinconsol and Elimar, two local hotels, have also decided to create themed room inspired by The Shire. The Shire will also feature a medium-sized lake in the middle of the park.
