Join us to a WORLD OF ADVENTURE!
Parque Oasys is the most original Theme Park of the Coast of the Mediterranean Sea, with live shows that imitate life in the Far West, real film-specialists and sympathic Can Can dancers, the Museum of Film history (one of the best in Spain) and a Museum of Carriages and Stagecoaches.
In the middle of this impressive landscape of the Desert of Tabernas this cowboy village reminds of the Wild and Far West of America. Tabernas desert is a stretch of barren landscape that looks as if it has been transplanted from the Mojave desert – dun-coloured hills scattered with tufts of tussocky scrub. In the sixties and seventies famous directors came under the spell of this natural scene and decided to make their films here. Famous films were made here, such as The Good, The Bad and the Ugly, Lawrence of Arabia, For A Fistful of Dollars and Once Upon A Time, amongst others. Also scenes for the films Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade, 2001-A Space Odyssey and Patton were shot here.
As you start exploring the authentic looking western town with a stunning mountain backdrop, you can have a closer look at the 18th century houses or pop into the local bank, church, various shops or even local cementery at the town’s outskirts. It’s all very atmospheric and instantly takes you back in time whether you want it or not! Get your picture taken dressed up as a 'Cowboy' at the Fancy dress store & Photo Studio or at the town square on the horse back next to a friendly cowboy. There is plenty of attractions and fun all around the place!
The highlight is watching the Western show, where the bad guys rob the bank and you´ll see a jailbreak, stunt riding and the final showdown gunfight, which the children loved. Straight after the working saloon is the location for the popular Cancan show. If you´re hungry there are plenty of places to eat.
If seeing all the attractions in the western village took you more than half a day, the rest of the day needs to be reserved for the Unique zoo which is also part of the Oasys Park. You will find there lots of species which you won’t find in many zoos. At the back of Mini Hollywood is the Animal Reserve that sprawls for miles, down in the valley and right back up the other side. It holds more than 200 species of animals originating from different continents and specialized in savage habitats, especially in the African Savanna. The enclosures for animals are very spacious and ingeniously made. You should also visit the section where you can see the tigers, pumas and cheetahs… you can also enjoy the Footprint Museum, the Reptilarium, the Cocodrile Pond, the birds in their cages, the predators, the petting zoo and the Parrots Show. Neither should you miss the incredible Cactus Garden with more than 300 species. All kinds of cactus were dotted around, some of them reaching over 10 feet tall.
