WASHINGTON — The Denver International Theme Park, located just east of downtown Denver, is expected to open its doors this year, the city announced Thursday.
The theme park, located in a former auto assembly plant, will be open by the end of 2020, said Dan Kuczmarski, the parks director for Denver.
The theme park will include two roller coasters, two water slides, a fire house, and a sandcastle.
It will be the first of its kind in the country.
Kuczski said the park will be a unique experience for Denver visitors.
He said the new attraction will be something that will be shared with other theme parks.
“This is a truly unique park, and we’re really excited about it,” Kucski told reporters.
“It will be unique for Denver.”
Denver Mayor Michael Hancock said the theme park is an “incredible opportunity” for the city.
“Denver’s vibrant cityscape will benefit from this unique and exciting attraction,” Hancock said in a statement.
The park will open to the public on March 11, 2020, and will be operated by the Denver-based park operators Denman International Theme Parks, which is owned by the Colorado-based company Denman Holdings.
Denver Parks and Recreation, Denver’s public works department, is in charge of the park.
The Denman theme park has a capacity of about 1.6 million visitors annually, Kucyski said.
The park opened in 2009.
The Denver City Council approved the Denman-owned theme park to be a permanent part of the city in January 2017.
Denver Mayor Hancock said he hopes the new amusement park will help attract visitors and increase the city’s economic development.
