Salitre Magico is an amusement park located in Bogotá, Colombia inside the territory of the Parque el Salitre. Currently it has 39 mechanical attractions such as 3 roller coasters, bumping cars, and the unique "Castillo del Terror" (Castle of Horror). It was one of the most important and classic amusement parks of the city, as well as the largest, among some others such as the Mundo Aventura and the Cici Aquapark.
Inaugurated in 1973 under the name of "Parque El Salitre", and located between the 68th Avenue and the 63rd Street, near the Parque Simon Bolivar in Bogotá. It was then considered as one of the most modern parks on Latin America. Some years later, the park was closed to the public in 1999, in order to be remodeled.
Its reinauguration took place in December 2000, under a new name "Salitre Mágico" and under the Mexican firm CIE,
with a total of 29 rides located all over the park, among these there was a roller coaster nicknamed "the Screw" due to its helicoidal form which was imported from the United States and reassembled in Bogotá; some other new attractions such as a giant Chicago Wheel called the "Rueda Millenium" (Millennium Wheel) with a total height of 40 m which offers a panoramic view of the city. The Salitre Magico also offers aquatic attractions and a wide variety of mechanical attractions and shows for children and the whole family. Close to the Salitre Magico, a brother park was inaugurated, the Cici Aquapark, which offers aquatic attractions including a sea waves simulator and several sledges. Both parks are currently part of the Mexican emporium Groupo Magico.
