"Llewellyn Werner, a California investor, admits he is facing obstacles most amusement park developers never have to deal with. Such as insurgent attacks and looting. "

"But when the amusement park you’re building lies in downtown Baghdad, those risks come with the territory."

"Mr Werner, chairman of C3, a Los Angeles-based holding company for private equity firms, is pouring millions of dollars into developing The Baghdad Zoo and Entertainment Experience, a massive American-style amusement park that will feature a skateboard park, rides, a concert theatre and a museum. It is being designed by the same firm that developed Disneyland."

“The people of Iraq need this kind of positive influence. It’s going to have a huge psychological impact,” Mr Werner said. "
