DECEMBER | VILA-SECA (TARRAGONA)
World-renowned circus raises its iconic big top tent for the very first time in Europe’s leading destination theme resort.
PortAventura, December 5, 2013. Next summer, Cirque du Soleil will present KOOZA, an adrenaline rush of acrobatics in a zany kingdom, at Europe’s premiere destination theme resort, PortAventura. Thanks to the agreement signed between both companies, the show, with a daily spectator capacity of over 2,400, will run at the resort during the summer months in 2014.
This agreement, which brings together two of the largest companies in the tourism and entertainment industry worldwide, means that PortAventura will be the first resort in Europe to host a Cirque du Soleil show. This project is part of PortAventura’s strategy to continue to set new international standards to position the resort, with almost 4 million visitors annually, as the best family entertainment destination in Europe. Kooza will be a huge draw for the summer months, including foreign tourism, which currently represents almost 50% of total number of visitors to the park.
Finn Taylor, Senior Vice President of Touring Shows for Cirque du Soleil commented: “Over 4 million spectators worldwide have already enjoyed the spectacle of Kooza. we are very excited about partnering with such a leader in the tourism and entertainment industry; a synergy which will allow us to delight and entertain the millions of visitors to the park as well as perform for our existing fans”
Sergio Feder, President of the Executive Committee of PortAventura, explained: “We are proud to welcome Cirque du Soleil next summer. This collaboration is a new step in the consolidation of PortAventura as a leading European resort and one of the most valuable brands in the family travel industry”.
