One of Hungary’s most expensive spa projects is coming to an end. The new RQ Thermal and Adventure Bath in Győr is scheduled to open in the summer of 2023.
he construction of the spa began in early 2021. In September last year, they announced that the opening could be expected by summer 2023. According to termalonline.hu, the official date has now been set. The spa, which will be the year’s one of the biggest new attractions in 2023, will be inaugurated on 17 June.
The huge water theme park will be built next to the already existing Rába Quelle Spa, transforming it into a huge bath complex. The portal reports that the new water park will feature 21 pools.
The investment cost more than HUF 23 billion (EUR 60.6 million). Such a massive investment in a spa has never been made in Hungary before. The cost of the project is especially high due to the construction of a dam. The spa is located near the rivers Moson-Danube and Rába. In previous years, the area was flooded almost completely by the rivers during heavy rainfalls.
The theme of the water park will be “Hungaricum”. Thus, in line with the theme, the main attraction will be a huge soda siphon-shaped water slide tower. Soda water is a well-known Hungaricum. Soda water is considered a Hungaricum. In Hungary, Ányos Jedlik was the first to produce water infused with carbon dioxide.
Here is what the unique slide tower loos like now:
According to the spa’s website, the new spa complex in Győr will be the first in the world to receive a 7-sea star rating. The concept behind this new quality assurance system is that each star represents a group of services. Services will include, for example, a variety of therapeutic treatments, several restaurants and bars, as well as a children’s play house and water play area.
