Cartoon Network has revealed plans to open a new, immersive hotel experience to the public in mid-2020.

Developed in partnership by Cartoon Network and Palace Entertainment, the 165-bedroom hotel will include some of the world’s most well-loved cartoon characters in its theming.

Located in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, US, the hotel is just steps from the doors of the Dutch Wonderland Family Amusement Park – which is owned by Palace Entertainment.

Facilities at the nine-acre destination hotel will include an interactive lobby, a resort-style pool and water play zone, an outdoor amphitheatre with an oversized movie screen and interactive lawn games.

Inside the hotel, each guest room and suite will feature interchangeable show theming that can be customised around children’s preferences to make each visit a new adventure.

There is also an indoor pool, games room, kids play area and a Cartoon Network store.

“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 of Cartoon Network.

"We can’t wait to be part of many family vacations with the ultimate Cartoon Network experience."

Rolf Paegert, chief operating officer of Palace Entertainment, added: “This is going to be a game changer.

"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.”
