cervisvenator: Hi

While I feel that Geocaching.com should hold the location for the cache owner and block other cachers from placing a cache in the area around this cache for a reasonable amount of time, we can’t do so forever.

Nothing seems to happen with this cache listing, so it is now archived, so that someone else can place a cache in the area, and geocachers can once again enjoy visiting this location. Also, if it hasn’t been done already, please pick up any remaining cache bits as soon as possible.

(This reviewer note is in English so non-Norwegian cache owners, geocachers and cache reviewers can understand what it says.)

Thanks for your understanding,
Cervis Venator

KONGEPARKEN


Kongeparken er en temapark basert på bamser. Parken har sitt eget hotell for bamser. Her kan alle kosedyr sjekke inn og man har et eget spa for alle slitene helter.

Historie

Kongeparken ble åpnet av Gabriel Ålgård 16.mai 1986 og var ment til å være en friluftspark med mange uteaktiviteter, bla. stort fuglebur, BMX-bane, rulleskøyting, spillehaller, golfbaner, Gulliver osv. Parken kostet 220 millioner kroner å ferdigstille. Besøkstallet det første året steg til over 200 000, men allerede i juli 1986 gikk parken konkurs. SR-bank var den største kreditoren og drev parken videre. I 1990 solgte de parken for 19 mill til et driftselskap. På første del av nitti tallet var det flere konkurser og ulike selskap som drev parken. I samme periode var antall besøk pr år sterk dalende – 1996 var det bare 40 000 som besøkte parken
Familien Lund kjøpte Kongeparken den 2. februar 1997. En av hovedoppgavene etter overtagelsen var å gi parken en klar familieprofil og snu den negative omtalen parken hadde fått etter gjentatte konkurser og turbulent drift. Etter flere år med slit klarte familien å snu trenden og få flere gjester til parken. Besøkstallet har steget jevnt og passerte i 2010 faktisk 200 000

Kongeparken was built in 1986 for 220 million NOK, but went bankrupt after only one year of operation. In the beginning, the park had many outdoor activities: large bird cage, BMX track, roller skating, arcades, golf courses, bobsled track. In the first part of the nineties, there weremore bankruptcies and new company who ran the park . In the same period, the number of visits per year strong waning - 1996 there were only 40 000 who visited the park.
In 1997, the park got a new owner. The task was to reverse the negative reputation, provide new activities and experiences. It has now become a theme park based on the teddy bears. The park has its own hotel for teddy bears. Here, all the soft toys check in and you have a separate spa for all struggling heroes. In 2010 the number of visitors exceeded 200 000
