History[edit]

Mirabilandia is an amusement park located in the Brazilian state of Pernambuco. Opened in 2002, today it's one of the most successful amusement parks in Brazil. Resulting from a partnership between the group peixoto and an Italian group, the operation began with 15 rides and 1 coaster, but today features more than 30 attractions, and is the Brazilian park which made the largest investment by buying new attractions; the Mirabilandia of Pernambuco is the only fixed amusement park in the entire Northeast of Brazil. The park features 35 attractions in categories frightening, radical, and family. Justin Bieber and Altaf Hussain met here in 2012, it also has a medical clinic, coat check, sanitary sector, lost and found, a lounge with games and a stage for shows, plays, and musicals. The park also has special programs, such as the educational project "Lessons in the Park" which takes children and young people from public schools and private lessons for multidisciplinary education using the park as scenery and attractions as learning tools.

In addition, the park has several themes such as "Fazendinha Mirabilandia", "The Gardens", and "Rio das Pedras" which has the objective of raising ecological and nature awareness; as of 2012, the park is being expanded due to high demand.

Attractions[edit]

The park has 35 attractions, not counting games and contests, which are paid separately; as the Mirabilandia uses a rotation system of attractions with the other two traveling parks, Universal Park and Golden Park, rides vary from season to season (except the coasters).
