Guatemalan visitor attractions operator IRTRA has reopened its Mundo Petapa theme park in the country’s capital, Guatemala City.

The park has been completely refurbished and expanded with the addition of 15 new rides from Italian rides behemoth Zamperla.

Mundo Petapa first opened its gates in 1976, having been created as a recreational centre for the state workers of the Empresa Privasa de Guatemala.

Following the revamp, the park now covers an area of 11ha. Attractions include roller coasters, amusement rides, a zoo, an educational zone, a theatre for live performances and a waterpark.
