EuroVegas, Barcelona World and Ferrari Park

11 Sep

Three big proyects are being planned in Spain this week, which will turn upside down the spanish tourist and leisure scenario.



Las Vegas Sands Chairman and CEO Sheldon Adelson announced the decision to choose Madrid over Barcelona for the multi-billion dollar gambling resort project “EuroVegas”.

This gambling complex would have 36.000 rooms and is supposed to be Europe’s biggest gambling spot, which obviously is a very interesting proposition. However, the American businessman announced that Las Vegas Sands was only willing to finance 35% of the multibillion-euro resort, and that it would demand certain changes in local planning laws.

We can’t wait for the following films to come as “Fear and loathing in Madrid”, “What happens in Madrid…” or even “Hangover: Madrid Edition”.

But Barcelona also wanted his candy!

Barcelona World

On Friday, the capital of the region of Catalonia unveiled its own plans for a 4.8-billion euro ($6 billion) “Barcelona World” resort situated beside the existing Port Aventura theme park near the Mediterranean Sea.

Barcelona’s plan would include a casino, six large tourist complexes with 20,000 hotel rooms, shopping centers, a theater and offices, all on land with no planning modifications required. But financing for the resort has not been signed yet.

Port Aventura Park, near Salou.

This macro-complex would attract up to 10 million tourists/year, adding this number to the already huge amount of 8 million visitors in Barcelona.

Ferrari Park

Valencia, already famous because of its F1 competition, may be home to a Ferrari Park, similar to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.


Ferrari World Abu Dahbi is a huge complex, being the World’s largest indoor theme park. And it’s got the fastest rollercoaster, too.

This proyect is still in development phase, as Paju, a city in South Corea, seems to be a serious competitor. We will keep you informed about the decision.


Would you visit one of this macro-proyects? Answer in our comments!

    yes…when I have earned enough money…which in the present economic scenario seems unlikely :)….EuroVegas sounds like the place I would head to first!

    ¿Crees que va a funcionar? La gente no tiene dinero.

      No sé si funcionará, pero quizás atraiga a toda la gente que SI tiene dinero en medio europa. Ya no tendrá que ir a EEUU, para vivir el sueño ‘Vegas’. Ya veremos
