MIAMI, United States. – The Provincial Tourism Company of Camagüey began the earthwork for the construction of a so-called “Fantastic Park”, whose inauguration is scheduled for the end of 2023, according to the official Cuban News Agency (ACN).
“The execution and planning of the work is currently in the earthworks phase, has a budget of 56 million pesos, and falls to the Provincial Tourism Company of Ciudad Santa María, which will be in charge of its commercial exploitation once the park was inaugurated”, indicates the report of the official press.
According to the ACN, the Fantastic Park is inspired by the structure of the Casa Insólita, an installation located in the city of Las Tunas, where optical and physical phenomena related to the force of gravity are shown.
For his part, the investor architect of the Provincial Directorate of Tourism of Camagüey, Fidel Alejandro Pérez Expósito, specified that the project includes around 11 work objects and that it will contain “several services to take advantage of its potential as a tourist and recreational attraction”.
It is three zip lines or canopy (steel cables stretched in the air used as travel lanes to transport people), a cafeteria-restaurant, a skating rink, a covered parking lot and a 4D room, among other services.
“One of the peculiarities of the park will be its optical complex, with a wall of transparencies, labyrinths of mirrors and other unusual structures, distinctive for their unique and striking architectural design,” Pérez Expósito assured ACN.
The Fantastic Park will be located on an existing esplanade at the intersection of Ignacio Agramonte Street and 26 de Julio Avenue, in the city of Camagüey.
The idea of the Provincial Directorate of Tourism is to “turn the place into an emblematic space for recreational purposes and thus consolidate the position of the capital of Camagüey as a potential destination for foreign visitors,” indicates the official media quoted.
Despite the serious crisis that the Island is going through, the Cuban regime has not stopped the construction of new hotels and tourist facilities of various kinds.
In the months of global economic crisis caused by the pandemic and internal shortages caused by the handling of the economy by the Communist Party, the construction works of new hotels have not stopped, he says. a report published in CubaNet in early June this year.
Also in mid-January, the Cuban government presented tourism projects to Spanish businessmen with whom they intend to increase hotel capacity to 95,000 rooms and exceed 6,000,000 foreign visitors in 2030.
The increase in buildings destined for tourism contrasts with the housing problems that the Cuban people have historically suffered, as well as with the much lower capital destined for sectors such as health or agriculture.
