Punta Cana may be known for its tropical beaches and luxurious resorts, but it will soon be home to a huge new amusement park.
According to Caribbean Journal, Katmandu Punta Cana is slated to open in the Dominican Republic later this year and is being billed as the only theme park of its kind in the Caribbean.
The theme park, built by Melia Hotels International and Falcon’s Beyond Global, is an extension of a major theme park in Mallorca, Spain.
The $350 million Katmandu park will include attractions, rides, shops, entertainment, and food and will be developed in two stages. According to a press release, phase 1 will consist of developing Katmandu Park Punta Cana, which will take beloved Katmandu characters and stories, already popular with millions of visitors in Europe, to entirely new audiences in the Caribbean. The Katmandu experience will include cutting-edge, first-of-its-kind rides and attractions, including the world’s first Suspended Theater® that immerses guests into the stories of Katmandu.
Phase 2 will add a premier entertainment, dining, and retail destination, featuring world-renowned brands led by Falcon’s Beyond.
“This park perfectly fills an important gap in the market, Katmandu Punta Cana will be the only theme park of its kind in the Caribbean, and will be able to satisfy the enormous hunger of visitors for world-class entertainment. It will be an absolutely unique experience for visitors to the surrounding hotels, tourists from the United States and residents of Punta Cana alike,” said Simon Hirst, director of parks, operations and expansion at Falcon’s Beyond Global said in a statement reported by Caribbean Journal.
