Katmandu Park Punta Cana closes its operations

Punta Cana – One year after its opening, Katmandu Park Punta Cana closed its doors.

“Katmandu Park Punta Cana closes immediately. The commercial stores and restaurant will remain operational,” reads the post published Thursday morning, in which they let it be known that they will consider the “future use of the property,” indicates a statement shared on the theme park’s official website and social networks.

“We extend our thanks to all of our customers who have enjoyed the park this past year. For more information contact:,” the communication concludes.

Katmandu Park Punta Cana was inaugurated in February 2023 in a ceremony led by the President of the Republic, Luis Abinader. As reported at the time, the theme park had an investment of more than US$60 million.

The park featured innovative rides and attractions, the first of its kind, which immersed visitors in the company’s original and proprietary franchise, The Hidden Realms of Katmandu.

Theme parks are risky and costly investments in the RD.

The big marketing draw for Punta Cana are the quite reasonable costs to stay at all inclusives.

Most tourists arrive to experience the Dominican environment in a manner that is easy on their travel budgets. A day visit price to a Dominican theme park for some families may break their allowances. Katmandu had a price of US$ 120 for adults and US$ 85 for kids. A family of five, 2 adults and 3 children would be $5 short of US$ 500.

Advice to theme park investors is to make a small uncomplicated park with low entrance prices.
