In partnership with Palace Entertainment, the Cartoon Network hotel will have 165 rooms on a nine-acre destination in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, next to the Dutch Wonderland Family Amusement Park.
The Network’s first hotel will feature animation and antics of characters from shows like Adventure Time, We Bare Bears, and The Powerpuff Girls. Through a combination of character animation and creative technology, the entire property will offer fun and unexpected ways to experience the animated worlds of Cartoon Network from the moment of arrival.
The nine-acre destination will feature an interactive lobby with surprises around every corner, a brand-new resort-style pool and water play zone, an outdoor amphitheater with an oversized movie screen, lawn games, fire pits and more!
The experience continues inside, where each guest room and suite will feature interchangeable show theming that can be customized around children’s preferences to make each visit a new adventure. An indoor pool, game room, kids play area, and Cartoon Network store will keep the fun going regardless of the season.
“With just the right mix of technology, design and animation, we’re aiming to bring our characters to life in a way that we haven’t seen done before”, said Christina Miller, President Cartoon Network-Adult Swim- Boomerang.
“We can’t wait to be part of many family vacations with the ultimate Cartoon Network experience.”
“This is going to be a game changer,” said Rolf Paegert, CEO of Palace Entertainment.
“With sleek contemporary designs that parents will appreciate and Easter egg type surprises for kids throughout the resort, the entire family will love this place. Cartoon Network’s stories and themes appeal to everyone in a fun whimsical way.”
“We are thrilled to be part of bringing the Cartoon Network experience to Lancaster, evolving the family hospitality and accommodations industry within the region. The new hotel will enhance the tourism in Lancaster offering several options in hospitality choices for families.”
The hotel is currently under construction and is scheduled to open in the summer of 2019.
