Themespace was the lead show designer for two major lands of the Paramount project in Murcia, Spain: Rango’s West and Enchanted Forest. Across these two lands there was a total of 30 different attractions, retail and dining establishments.

Rango’s West, the largest land in the park, focuses on the Oscar winning cartoon western world from the movie Rango, recreating the town of “Dirt” from the Animated film.

Attractions include coasters, a rapids ride, a 4D theater and much more.

The land of the Enchanted Forest is dedicated to fantasy, intertwining popular Paramount movies such as Sleepy Hollow, Stardust, Fairy Tale, and The Spiderwick Chronicles. This lush landscape and fanciful medieval faire is a great contrast to the western theme of Rango.

In addition to both of these lands, Themespace led the design for the park’s marquee attraction: a high-tech, thrilling media immersion ride based on Paramounts iconic Blockbuster film 'Mission Impossible'.
