Puy du Fou Meppel feasibility study

Market study for Puy Du Fou theme park Meppel

The Dutch province Drenthe liked to attract a big theme park to the region. After evaluating several options they approached the French storytelling showpark Puy du Fou. Puy du Fou conducted a feasibility study on possible locations in the Provence. The city of Meppel was selected as the preferred location. Meppel municipality asked TDAC as theme park consultants and specialist in regional tourism development, for a second opinion market study for Puy du Fou theme park Meppel.

Based on previous work for the city of Meppel, TDAC was well acquainted with the specific situation at this location. This knowledge, in combination with the our extensive knowledge of the theme park business, formed the basis for further database market research on the existing tourism market and population in the region. 

From Puy du Fou, TDAC received valuable input on the performance of the existing parks in France and Spain. Analyzing the input from these two sources gave TDAC a relatively good picture of the potential for a Puy du Fou park at that location. Based on the historical data, the TDAC team created an analysis of the potential market on the expected opening day for Puy du Fou in Meppel.

The second opinion market study or Puy du Fou theme park Meppel was delivered in a comprehensive digital report and explained verbally during several meetings.
