Publishing & Media

Sustainable energy provider Qurrent is collaborating with Jora Entertainment on plans for the world's first sustainable theme park.

Despite currently lagging behind many of their neighboring EU countries, the Netherlands aims to generate 6,000 megawatts of sustainable energy on land by 2020, which will require an unprecedented level of growth. Hoping to help propel the movement, sustainable energy provider Qurrent is collaborating with Jora Entertainment on plans for the world’s first sustainable theme park.

The amusement park will use wind turbines both as the energy source and infrastructure for rides. The 8,000 square meter park will include the Beaufort Buster — a wind turbine-cum-waterslide, and the Newton Nightmare — a 95 meter drop tower ride. It will also aim to normalize the use of wind power for its visitors and educate them about the benefits of the sustainable energy.
