October 30, 2018 – Some of the world’s most well-loved cartoon characters will be coming to life through a partnership announced today by Cartoon Network and Palace Entertainment. The Cartoon Network Hotel will be the premier family lodging experience in Central Pennsylvania. 

Joining a global portfolio of great Cartoon Network family experiences, the Network’s first hotel will feature 165 rooms and immerse guests in the animation and antics of characters from shows like Adventure TimeWe Bare Bears, and The Powerpuff Girls. Through a combination of character animation and creative technology, the entire property will offer fun and unexpected ways to experience the animated worlds of Cartoon Network from the moment of arrival. 

The nine-acre destination will feature an interactive lobby with surprises around every corner, a brand-new resort-style pool and water play zone, an outdoor amphitheater with an oversized movie screen, lawn games, fire pits and more! 

The experience continues inside, where each guest room and suite will feature interchangeable show theming that can be customized around children’s preferences to make each visit a new adventure. An indoor pool, game room, kids play area, and Cartoon Network store will keep the fun going regardless of the season. 

The Cartoon Network Hotel is centrally located along the Route 30 commercial stretch in the heart of Lancaster County and is just steps from the castle doors of Dutch Wonderland Family Amusement Park.

Palace Entertainment currently owns and operates more than 20 amusement parks, water parks, and family entertainment centers across the United States and Australia. The Cartoon Network Hotel will be the first hotel of its kind and Palace’s first time partnering with an international brand on a lodging property.
