Relive Your Childhood By Staying In The New Cartoon Network Hotel
By Sharelle Burt
Remember laughing until you cried while watching shows like Johnny Bravo? Or wanting to be a badass superhero like The Powerpuff Girls? Maybe you tapped into your love for science while watching Dexter’s Laboratory. Well, you can relive your childhood if you vacay to Lancaster, Pennsylvania and book a room at the new Cartoon Network Hotel.
The 165-room venue gives you a blast from the past with rooms catering to some of your favorite CN shows like Ed, Edd n’ Eddy, Courage the Cowardly Dog and We Bare Bears. The hotel has something for the entire family with a water play zone, resort-style pool, arcade, a kid’s play area, oversized movie screen, interactive lobby, outdoor amphitheater, lawn games and much more.
Staying there would literally be like living within the nostalgic channel itself. Just like the late-night version, Adult Swim, the hotel plans to have some adult activities like a coffee lounge and wine bar. Hopefully, they can add some Robot Chicken-themed rooms for the grown-ups as well.
It may sound like a lot for guests to take in, but the creators of the hotel are using a new technique to engage visitors. Palace Entertainment says it will use “character animation and creative technology” to adapt each stay to the guests’ cartoon character preferences.
The new hotel hopes to bring more tourists to Central Pennslyvania, competing with the already popular Hersey Park and Dorney Park, which gets you double entry for one price with the Wild Water Kingdom right next door. Combining kid-friendly technology, sleek design, interactive entertainment, popular cartoon characters, and good wine, it should be a win-win for everyone.
Cartoon Network Hotel is set to open in 2019.
