A new mega theme park is set to open near the popular tourist hotspot of Cancun – in the state of Quintana Roo, Mexico.

The news comes at a time when Cancun is already welcoming huge numbers of tourists by the day – with hotels in the most popular vacation spot for American tourists almost fully booked for the summer months ahead.

And, the announcement that there will soon be a new mega theme park opening in the state of Quintana Roo is sure to attract even more tourists to Mexico – with the country expected to welcome as many as 40 million international visitors this year.

Just a week ago we reported that Marriott is also set to open a new all-inclusive resort in the city of Cancun – which will include its very-own water park, as well as more than 1,000 hotel rooms.

What We Know So Far About The New Mega Theme Park

What we do know so far is that the new mega theme park will go by the name of Malltertainment – with the complex set to become a great spot for family and friends to enjoy time together, and boast a variety of entertainment options to choose from.

Here are some of the features that visitors to the new mega theme park – Malltertainment – can expect to find:

  • an amusement park
  • an ice rink
  • a go-kart track – which in fact is set to be the biggest in the world
  • a 7,500-seater auditorium
  • a hot air balloon attraction

There are also plans for the theme park to feature an area of 80,000 square meters of water – which visitors will be able to enjoy – however, at this present time it has not been confirmed whether this will be an actual water park or another water-based attraction.

As well as the above mentioned features, visitors to Malltertainment will also be able to choose from a number of restaurants options on site, as well as shops and other amenities which are sure to meet the needs of all of those who enter its doors.

Who Is Behind The Malltertainment’ Theme Park Project?

Palace Resorts is the company group behind the Malltertainment project, with their new theme park complex set to open right next to one of their biggest – and one of Cancun’s most-popular all-inclusive hotel resorts – the Moon Palace Cancun.

The company behind the construction of the Malltertainment theme park is Gicsa – a Mexico-based real estate development company.

And, if the news that visitors to the Moon Palace Cancun will soon be able to enjoy a day-trip to the new nearby theme park complex, Malltertainment, wasn’t enough – there is still a huge amount of entertainment that the Moon Palace Cancun, itself, offers visitors.

That is because the all-inclusive hotel resort offers thousands of rooms, several swimming pools, as many as 16 on-site restaurants to choose from – as well as a luxury spa, fitness center, tennis and basketball courts, a selection of bars and clubs to party the night away in, a children’s playroom, and much much more.

It is also the perfect choice for golf-lovers – with the Moon Palace Cancun not only being a stone’s-throw away from the 27-hole Jack Nicklaus Signature Golf Course, but the resort itself also offering visitors the chance to learn golfing tips and techniques at its very-own Moon Palace Golf Academy.

So, the news that there is soon to be a new mega theme park opening in the area is no doubt going to attract even more visitors – with millions of tourists already having enjoyed all that is on offer in this hugely popular part of the city of Cancun.

Although an opening date is yet to be announced for the Palace Group’s new mega theme park – Malltertainment – visitors should certainly not expect it to arrive anytime this year (2022).
