The developers of the Amikoo theme park being built on Mexico’s Riveria Maya have revealed more about their plans.
The project will create a “world-class” destination that celebrates the country’s Mayan culture and heritage for the benefit of a projected 4.5 million national and international tourists. Culture, archeology, gastronomy, arts and entertainment will be interpreted through a variety of attractions. Integral to the park will be Museum of Maya Archeology and Anthropology complex comprising a hotel, shops, restaurants, a convention centre and themed rides.
There will be three unique and original attractions with media content. These will be the flying theatre FlyOver Mexico, Mares de Mexico (Seas of Mexico), a submarine-themed Explorer from Huss Park Attractions that will travel through marine biodiversity, and Piratas de Bacalar, an elaborate immersive tunnel installation from Simworx.
The team behind the park, Grupo Gala Resorts & Entertainment and Grupo IUSA, has also signed a strategic alliance with Visa that is expected to promote and accelerate the adoption of digital payment technologies in Mexico.
Amikoo’s developers have made the bold claim that they would like the park to become “the most important themed tourist destination in Latin America.” Furthermore, they add that Amikoo “promotes a new model of development in the amusement park industry and incorporates new technologies to support the growth, productivity and competitiveness of tourism in Mexico.”
Conceptual design of the park has now been finalised. Construction moved one step closer in October with the granting of all building permits and environmental permissions. The start-up of operations is anticipated in the third quarter of 2019.
