The British group Merlin Entertainment has decided: it will be in Charleroi that will be built the next Legoland park, the 4th of the name in Europe!
The entertainment and theme park giant chose Wallonia because of its strategic geographic positioning, the size of the location (this is the former Caterpillar industrial site) and the available workforce.
Excellent news for the region, both from an economic point of view, we are talking about an investment of nearly 400 million euros (the second largest investment in Wallonia in 10 years, after Google) with the key to the immediate creation of 800 direct jobs, as from a touristic point of view. Legoland® Resort Charleroi is expected to attract between 1.5 and 2 million visitors a year! Doors to open in 2017.
