Visitor attractions operator Looping Group has announced the acquisition of Aquapark Istralandia - the largest waterpark in Croatia and one of the most popular waterparks in Europe.

Welcoming more than 180,000 visitors each year, the waterpark in Nova Vas, Brtonigla, opened in 2014 and was Croatia’s first major waterpark development.

Supplied by waterpark manufacturer Polin, the attraction features 17 waterslides and six swimming pools, and originally cost €10m (US$11m, £8.4m) to develop.

The waterpark has been managed by the Kovačić family since it opened, with Paolo and Mauro Kovačić retaining their roles as directors following the takeover.

Aquapark Istralandia represents Looping Group’s seventeenth park overall and first in Croatia. The acquisition will bring the group’s overall attendance up to approximately 5.7 million visitors per year. Other recent acquisitions from the group include the August 2020 takeover of Drayton Manor in the UK.
