Samoa might soon have one more activity to offer to locals and visitors looking for a bit of fun and thrills.
Developer Wilhelm Schwalger has been working hard to bring Samoa’s first Fun Park to life at Aleisa. Phase 1 of the project will be complete with Quad bikes with fun tracks, romantic walking trails, comfortable fales, and a children’s adventure complex.
Mr. Schwalger said he was inspired to start the Aleisa Fun Park while living in Dubai.
“When we were in Dubai, me and my wife paid to go into one of these parks,” he said.
“This park had everything and I told my missus, I want to do one like this in Samoa. Now after how many years, I’m here starting something.” Mr. Schwlager is a licensed builder who recently relocated from New Zealand and has already begun constructing a fence around the massive perimeter at Aleisa.
As the only financial contributor, Mr. Schwalger has been able to complete 40% of the project. The renovation, upkeep and purchase of equipment is costly. But he is now looking for investors, sponsors and government assistance to actualise his dream of bringing the first fun park to Samoa.
“I’m running out of money,” he said. “That’s why I mentioned (in the advertisement) investors and government help. They should help out because it’s good for the Samoan people.
“Cheap for everyone. Rather than going overseas and spending thousands of dollars, they can come and spend the weekend there.” He emphasizes the Park is for the Samoan people, especially for those who can’t afford to travel elsewhere. “I want something for the Samoan people. Those who can’t afford to go overseas. I’m just doing it for the Samoan people.”
The intention of the project is to create an inexpensive outing for everyone to enjoy a nice outdoor adventure.
The park is projected to be open by May 2017 and can be used to host a variety of occasions: birthdays, company parties, church functions, etc.
