The 120-hectare (296-acre) amusement park, planned by the Ministry of Tourism, will be constructed, not surprisingly, in Transylvania.

The ENI agency reported that Orthodox and Lutheran leaders, in an official note, said that the project “greatly harms Christian values, as it is centered on cruelty, horror and occultism, values that have nothing to do with the spirit of the Romanian nation.”
