With five zones and more than 35 rides and attractions suitable for all ages, Hopi Hari is one of Brazil’s most popular amusement parks. At the recently renovated park, visitors are welcomed into the fictional world of Hopi Hari, where each brightly colored “village” has its own theme, including a Wild West zone and a Looney Tunes area.
Tickets grant access to all five zones—Kaminda Mundi, where attractions are inspired by European culture; Infantasia, where Looney Tunes characters are ready to entertain younger kids; Mistieri, filled with big thrill rides and adrenaline-fueled attractions; Justice League, where rides are inspired by Batman, Wonder Woman, and other DC comics superheroes; and the cowboy-themed Wild West. Highlights include a number of roller coasters, a rafting river, a SkyCoaster, Brazil’s largest Ferris wheel, and live theater shows.
