Park News - (8/5/17) Good news for Hopi Hari for once, because after sitting closed since May and undergoing a complete refurbishment, I'm told that Hopi Hari will open their gates to new guests once again today. The park is apparently under new management and really hopes to turn their fate around this year, along with plans to turn the 'main street' of the park into a City Walk style entertainment area full of restaurants and bars and theaters that will be open to the public.
The park also has plans set to open for Halloween festivities again today with the new Karnak: The Curse of the Tomb haunt theme, which they are already promoting with a video teaser on social media. Look for the "Hora do Horror" activities to run from today through to October 1st each night.
The park is also trying some new tactics in terms of sales as well, with online advanced ticket sales possibly being the only way to gain admission, in addition to a limit on the number of tickets sold each day to prevent the park from being overcrowded. They are also stopping the use of physical cash-money in the park and moving to "Hopi Card" system which will work much like a pre-paid credit card system that you can add extra funds to throughout the day as needed. If you lose the card, report it to an employee and they can have it frozen immediately.
It is said that a few rides will not be ready yet, but should be ready to reopen in the coming months. A few new rides are also expected to be added for the 2018 season, but no details were released yet.
2018 - New Attractions - (8/5/17) New attractions have been promised for the 2018 season, but no details have been given yet as the park is only now just reopening after a several month’s long refurbishment.
