Theme Parks

Mediapolis S.p.A. is a major leisure investment based on a theme park in northern Italy between Milan and Turin.  The major shareholders are Clear Leisure plc (69.45%) and Olivetti Multiservice, a Telecom Italia company. The project is made up of five different parts:

  • Theme Park
  • Large scale specialised shopping centre
  • Hotel and welcoming organisations
  • Energy production plants
  • Commercial development

Mediapolis will be the largest entertainment venue in the Milan – Turin urban area, and can be reached within one hour’s drive by 4 million people, within two hour’s drive by 12 million, within three hour’s drive by 18-20 million and within 4 hour’s drive by 45 million.

The Milan-Turin area is one of the most important urban conurbations in Europe, with over 18 million inhabitants, and with the Alps – Mediterranean region close by, it accounts for a total of 35 million people, offering high purchasing power. The theme park has little competition in this area.

The land covers an area of 670,000 square metres (about 165 acres), fronting the A6 motorway for 1 km. Studies show that approximately six million visitors could be expected annually. Once completed, the park will become a fully integrated and synergic business in a beautifully landscaped enclosure, consisting of rides, hotels, a shopping centre, restaurants and support services.

Ondaland

Ondaland is the biggest Water Park in Italy. Strategically located on the Milan to Turin motorway, at the intersection of the Varese-Genoa motorway, next to the “Vicolungo” Outlet and only 30 km from Mediapolis.
The park covers 45 acres, and carries [27] attractions and 11 catering points, making the park the reference in terms of water entertainment venues of the whole Lombardy and Piedmont region, with more than 350,000 admissions during its 3 months Summer opening season.

At its year end of 31 August 2012, Ondaland’s parent company, Sipiem SpA reported a turnover of € 6.5m, with profit before tax of € 2.7m. It has recently been independently evaluated at €[ 25]m, making it an ideal candidate for Clear Leisure’s acquisition strategy. Clear Leisure owns 51% of Sipiem.

Ondaland received approved in early 2012 for a major €7 million expansion of its facilities to include an attraction park called “La Terra d’Endora” that consists of traditional theme park rides and will allow the park to remain operational throughout the whole year. It will open at Easter 2013.
