Work will begin at the end of the 2017 season and the indoor park should be open as early as July 2018.
This new indoor area will be themed about the Heidi universe as well as Tabaluga and Mia & Me. The park's general theme will somewhat looks like the Heidiland area of Plopsaland de Panne in Belgium. The only roller coaster in the area will be installed in the middle of a Swiss village and will be supplied by the German company Zierer. It will be a family coaster. There will also be two carousels, one themed to Heidi, the other to Mia & me. But also a giant slide, a ball pool and a playground. There will also be a show, with 500 seats.
