    Amusement park based on the basic idea of LazyTown (Latibaer)

    This was posted yesterday in the Visir newspaper.
    http://www.visir.is/g/2018180109180

    First a museum and now an amusement park. It's getting better and better

    Google translation:
    "It's just right to get to the drawing table," says Helga Halldˇrsdˇttir, a resident of Borgarnes. Helga plans to set up an amusement park based on the basic idea of ​​LatabŠ.

    In the Gazette, a notice is published about Borgarnes Experience Company. The announcement is "Building a recreation for tourists in Borgarnes and surroundings, based on the basic idea of ​​LatabŠ."

    [..]

    "The project is being reviewed by a group of people who are interested in establishing something based on Magn˙s Scheving's ideology," says Helga. "Magn˙s, of course, is Borgesing and has strong roots to date here in the province."

    The group received ISK 3 million from the Western Cape Development Fund, and was the basis for the establishment of the company.

    "In the next few days, we will hire a project manager, who is expected to work for at least six months, to investigate possible location and implementations for the park, as well as studying investor interest in the project," says Helga.

    Helga says that Magnus, the first person, came to the job and that much would be done. He has created a name beyond the landmarks, and LatibŠr is, of course, a well-known mark on a foreign basis.

    "The next six months is inventory time and then we have to clarify in July which next step we will take. It depends, of course, on investors' interests and other people who will be asked about their involvement in the project, "says Helga.

    As previously mentioned, the project is at an absolute early stage and therefore it is unclear when the park could be opened if it reaches that level. "In my view, it would not take more than three to five years to make this happen," says Helga.

    I think it would be awesome, if everyone's budget would allow it, if a group of us could all visit Iceland at the same time.

    Interesting. This might be one of the driving forces of seasons 5-6 being created.

    Re: Amusement park based on the basic idea of LazyTown (Latibaer)

    The amusements park is well underway according to a few article posted in the last month. They got support and are funded by West Iceland Development Fund.

    Borgarnes Experience Park ehf. intends to set up a so-called experience park in Borgarnes of 2,000 square meters, and has applied for a place for a museum, studio and restaurant. The activities should be based on the ideology of the LazyTown TV shows and books and more.

    Magn˙s Scheving, the creator of LazyTown, is from Borgarnes (Iceland) and it has been stated that the locals have collaborated with him on a LazyTown experience park.

    The members of the project believe that development of the experience park based on the ideology of LazyTown would greatly enhance recreational opportunities in the district of Borgarnes, strengthen the image of the town and the community as a whole and create a number of new jobs," says Helga Halldˇrsdˇttir in her letter to the town.


    One of the articles:

    -- translated with Google Translate --
    March 5, 2021 News

    Aiming for an experience park in the spirit of LatabŠr in Borgarnes

    At the show of FornbÝlafjelag Borgarfj÷r­ur and Raftanna in Brßkarey, it did not go unnoticed how much interest there is in everything related to LatabŠr.

    At a meeting of the Borgarbygg­ local council yesterday, the application of Upplifunargar­ur Borgarnes ehf. about up to 2000 square meters plot in Borgarnes for activities that will be based on the ideology of LatabŠr, or Lazy Town. The local council responded positively to the presentation and noted that it was a very interesting project and promised support for its progress. The local council instructed the mayor to work with the project's representatives to find a suitable site.

    A letter written by Helga Halldˇrsdˇttir, on behalf of Upplifunargar­ur Borgarnes ehf., States that a house for a museum, studio and restaurant is to be built. The plot would need to be able to accommodate two thousand square meters of houses as well as outdoor facilities and also with expansion possibilities. "The members of the project believe that such a development, which is based on the ideology of Lazy Town and would be set up in Borgarnes, would strengthen the possibilities for recreation in the district, strengthen the image of the town and the community as a whole and create a number of new jobs."

    Helga mentions in her presentation that for the past three years she and Magn˙s Scheving, creator of Lazy Town and others, have been working on the preparation of this project in Borgarnes. "It is now considered very likely that this will become a reality and that this will be the case in the coming years, a reduced company that creates many jobs and has no parallel in Iceland."

    The world knows the episodes

    Borgnesingurinn Magn˙s Scheving.

    In 2016, Magn˙s Scheving, the pioneer and author of the books and world-famous TV series about LatabŠr, brought in LatabŠr cars and equipment from storage to a museum in his old hometown Borgarnes. Some of these well-known collectibles were then installed in the premises of FornbÝlafjelag Borgarfj÷r­ur in Brßkarey in connection with the large exhibition of the company and the Raft.

    The cars, equipment and puppets of the various characters from the episodes about LatabŠr are fresh in the minds of many. But interest in what is related to LatabŠr extends far beyond the rocks, as the shows about Lazy Town were shown in many countries with great popularity.

    In the episodes; tools and equipment, but not least the message conveyed by the Sports Elf, Glanni Glaepur, Solla Stir­a and other characters, are great opportunities. The locals in Borgarens want to seize these opportunities and three years ago, in consultation with Magn˙s Scheving, began preparations for the establishment of LatabŠjarsafn, or an experience park, in Borgarnes.

    According to Helgi Halldˇrsdˇttir, the project is now well under way. It is worth mentioning that the West Iceland Development Fund has supported the preparation of the project.

    This is an audio interview with Helga Halldˇrssdˇttir who is one of the developers. It's in Icelandic so I can't tell what she is saying..

    In this week's episode, Thelma got Helga Halldˇrssdˇttir, one of the representatives of the development of an experience park in the spirit of LatabŠr in Borgarnes. Magn˙s Scheving, who is also connected to the project, donated LatabŠr's toys for safekeeping in Borgarnes, but he himself has his roots there and LatibŠr and his characters are based to some extent on Borgarnes.

    Helga tells us about the development of the project and the help they have received to propel the project forward, but the project received excellent support from the West Iceland Development Fund 2020.
