Magikland is a small children’s theme park in Penafiel in northern Portugal. The project is in its early years (opened in 2012 since it moved from Braga due to the bankruptcy of the previous owners) and it shows. The parking lot is non-existent and the cars are piled up in a quarry in the nearest roundabout. Awful!.
Inside a small roller coaster, a water splash ride and some fun fair toys like a giant wheel and carousels. All centred on little children but without a coherent or inspiring theme. There is even a themed land properly called “World of Confusion” where you will find a small Eiffel Tower and flying elephants. There are some nice sculptures and scenarios like the St. George Dragon at the entrance or Pirate Galleon but nothing that justifies 17,50€ entrance.
Spaced in the park grounds are some nice sculptures and scenarios like the St. George Dragon at the entrance or Pirate Galleon but nothing that justifies 17,50€ adult entrance or 12€ children.
Lot’s of work to do here. We’ll probably come back in a year or two to report the progress (or not).
