Posted Tuesday, December 4, 2007 12:31 PM | Contributed by Sarah Jackson

An amusement park with a spy theme is planned as part of a major entertainment complex in Spain. The park, named Spyland, will be part of a massive leisure complex called Gran Scala that is being planned for the Zaragoza province of Spain. The entertainment district is expected to include 32 casinos, four theme parks, mega-hotels, shopping and other attractions. The opening is planned for 2010.

Leaked? If they made an announcement at IAAPA, that sounds intentional to me.

A water park called Aquantica! Sounds original!

Visitors will be able to play the role of spy, undertake missions, collect clues and infiltrate fictitious borders as they move through six zones in the park, including a small water park called Aquantica. Guests will also be able to test technologies used in spying. Stunt shows will be based on the escapades of real spies.

Now including "Waterboarding: The Ride"!!!!

Right... and for the 52nd time, Spyland is announced!

See, this project has been going on for close to 10 years. It was first supposed to open a few years ago in southern France with a Mack Watercoaster and a Caripro I Flyer (like the old KI Ghoster Coaster). Then, mysteriously... construction never started, the project "was under revision", "securing financing", then, it moved to Dubai...

Nothing happened in Dubai and now those guys are trying again in Spain.

Sorry, but what a stupid concept.

For a ride? Great! But for a whole park?
