Theme park is coming to the Dominican Republic: Travel Weekly
While the Caribbean isn’t a big destination for theme parks, a collaboration between a hotel company hopes to change that in the Dominican Republic.
Katmandu Park Punta Cana is scheduled to open in early 2023. Katmandu Park Punta Cana was designed and built by Falcon’s Beyond Global. Created by entertainment development company Falcon’s Beyond, the park is slated to open in early 2023.
The park will expand Kathmandu Park in Mallorca, Spain, which opened in 2012.
The Punta Cana project will include a new resort brandFalcon’s Resort by Melia, which is a multi-phase transformation of two existing Melia properties, Paradisus Grand Cana and The Reserve at Paradisus Palma.
Initially, the Punta Cana Park will only be open to resort guests. The park will feature rides and attractions that will immerse visitors in Falcon’s Beyond franchise, The Hidden Realms of Kathmandu.
“Only here can you fire blasters to earn points in EtherQuest, venture into the Himalayas in Legend of the Desirata, experience daring underwater rescue aboard the Voyage of the Fathom Wanderer and fight your way through an unforgettable game of chess in the Challenge of the Mad Mage,” is how Katmandu Park describes the experience on its website.
Additional attractions include a mini-golf course, outdoor ropes course, rock climbing course, carnival-style games, and an arcade.
After Punta Cana, Falcon’s said it plans to open Kathmandu parks in places such as Tenerife, in the Canary Islands, in 2024; Playa Del Carmen, Mexico, in 2025; and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, with an opening date to be announced.
