Discovery Plans Entertainment Centers Worldwide



The new centers will be themed around topics like nature, space, the oceans and adventure.

GLOBAL–Discovery Communications and Parques Reunidos have teamed up to develop a series of themed entertainment centers in North America, Western Europe and Asia-Pacific.

The indoor entertainment centers will feature a score of entertainment facilities, state-of-the-art rides, dining areas and a retail store.
