The renovation of the entrance hall should shorten the queuing at ticket offices, provide more comfort in stylish spaces and introduce the exotic atmosphere of the Tropical Paradise from the very first moment. “The ticket offices will be able to serve our customers 3 times faster, thanks to touch screens and top-quality technology. Their capacity will reach 550 to 650 people per hour, under standard conditions,“ said Peter Huraj, head manager of the investment department at Aquapark Tatralandia.
New investments planned for the entrance hall are a follow-up to those made in the locker area and finishing of the whole Tropical Paradise concept. The complete construction will have a natural tropical design and feature even a rock cliff with jellyfish. Over the entrance to the pool area, there will be a spreading tree where a rainbow will appear every time it stops raining. The entrance hall with year-round operation will feature unique technological inventions and a special glass facade with an area of more than 300 m2, whose transparent walls will create a pleasant relaxing atmosphere once entering it. There will be a big automated turnstile and behind it a large relaxation and waiting space with an area of more than 600 m2. Two-way ticket offices with additional facilities such as a sports shop and an information centre will be added as well. “There will be a small brook at the entrance, flowing to a lake with an endless whirlpool. Tropical sounds will be heard in the whole area. They will remind our customers of the seaside and create a true holiday atmosphere. We hope these investments will help our customers forget their everyday troubles so that they can go home relaxed and recharged. The smallest ones can look forward to a new attraction – a life-size crocodile,“ added Huraj.
Those who would like to enjoy something extra at Tatralandia after having relaxed in salt sea water under tropical palm trees can try a unique natural pedicure by the Garra Rufa fish. This special procedure is very effective when treating various skin diseases. It is available at the Etani Wellness Point.
