Talking about Parques Reunidos means refering to one of the leading global operators of regional leisure parks and one of the three truly global leisure park operators.
After 50 years in the sector, we now operate a well-diversified portfolio of 61 different assets (attraction parks, animal parks, water parks, family entertainment centers and other attractions), spread out over 3 continents and 14 countries across Europe, the Americas (USA and Argentina), the Middle East (Dubai) and Asia (Vietnam). Our asset diversity has placed us as the second-largest leisure park operator in Europe and the eighth-largest leisure park operator worldwide.
Overall, our parks received a total of approximately 20 million visitors in the financial year ending on September 30th, 2016, a number that materializes the success of our three-format business model: operation of fully-owned parks, operation of third-party parks, and consultancy for park developers.
We have a highly experienced and committed management team with a proven track record across different geographical areas and economic cycles.
- Most active acquirer of individual leisure parks in Europe and USA over the last eight years.

Our Group’ history dates back to 1967, when the company was incorporated under the name Parque de Atracciones Casa de Campo de Madrid, S.A. (The Madrid Casa de Campo Theme Park). Since then, our history has spanned over 50 years of continued growth and diversification.
From being a primarily Spanish business, Parques Reunidos has evolved into a leading international operator. Today, the company has a total of 61 parks located in 14 countries across Europe, America, the Middle East and Asia.
Parques Reunidos has carried out targeted strategic acquisitions over recent years to support the development of the business, successfully integrating 57 parks in the last 10 years and signing various contracts to expand further.
This strategy makes Parques Reunidos the most active acquirer of individual leisure parks in Europe and USA over the last eight years.In 2003, we have successfully rolled out an operating business model for Spain focused on safety and operational excellence, customer satisfaction, strict cost control, and attention to detail. We later applied this business strategy to our expansion and acquisitions plans across Europe between 2004 and 2006.
Finally, the expansion phase we have experienced since 2007 has transformed our Group into a truly global operator with an established breadth of parks across the United States and Europe. Since then, the Group has continued to seek attractive growth opportunities worldwide.
