Unless they build an IKEA next to it, I am not sure they will recoup their investment.

What does IKEA have to do with a Finnish anime character?

This is a terribly niche amusement park. I can't see it lasting more than a year or two.

Hope it was privately funded because it's going to be a money pit. Moomin is cute and all, but no way it'll break even.

Tove Jansonn was a genius and The Moomins are an enduring creation, much beloved in Japan. Her legacy continues to enchant and inspire young fans and artists, alike.

I don't understand the fascination with cartoon characters. A lot of the novelty shops have Moomin paraphernalia, which is ridiculously priced.
