Los Angeles: What are Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt busy with? The couple is said to be finalising an eco-friendly playground as a gift to their six children.
They theme park will be built in their chateau in the South of France and the decision came after their visit last September to Legoland in Windsor, Berks, was cut short due to security concerns in the camp.
“Brad and Ange felt really bad having to drag the kids home early when they were at Legoland last year. But if their bodyguards said there were too many people then they had no choice,” thesun.co.uk quoted a source as saying.
“Their eldest son Maddox asked if they could build something similar at the house in France. They were already getting a new pool so they decided it was a great idea,” added the source.
But unlike Michael Jackson’s Neverland, most of the park will be underground – with turf on top.
It will be powered by sunlight, using panels in the roof and the water will be recycled.
The source said: “Plans include a huge partly underground eco-friendly theme park in the garden with the kids’ favourite rides.
“There’s a massive pool, slides, tunnels, boat rides, a pirate island with a castle, a go-kart track and even an old-fashioned carousel.
“Brad has designed a mini train that goes around the whole grounds and it’s going to go through a door at the side of the new structure and into the park.”
