There may yet be a future for the once-thriving Tivoli World theme park in Benalmadena.

Benalmadena mayor Juan Antonio Lara and urban planning councillor Presi Aguilera appeared before the press to state that they were confident the amusement park will be open again.

“I want it to be clear to my neighbours that we’ve been working from minute one to provide solutions and finally achieve what we all want – for Tivoli World to reopen its doors,” the mayor said.

The park has been closed for three years due to an accumulative debt of £9.6m overseen by the company that formerly managed the park, the International Parks and Attractions Company, or CIPASA.

Some of the former attraction still remain in situ such as its Ferris wheels and drop tower. As the park is located towards the centre of Benalmadena, the plot of land has a valuable real estate.

“I want to make it clear that our government team is working to ensure that Tivoli reopens its doors and does so, as it could not be any other way, as an amusement park,” added Lara.

It is hoped that the park finally gets the green light to welcome guests back into the park such as its touristic importance on the Costa del Sol. Tivoli World has a proud history dating back to 1972 when Danish businessman Bernt Olsen opened it. 

There is yet shoots of hope for this much-loved park to hear the buzz of guests enjoying the attraction once more.
