Cartoon Network is getting into the hospitality industry. The cable network famous for Adult Swim and a bevy of animated shows is sort of following Nickelodeon’s footsteps and is building a hotel. But what’s interesting here is where CN is deciding to build: in Amish Country.
Pennsylvania Amish Country, specifically Lancaster, will be the location of Cartoon Network’s first hotel. And Amish Country might seem like a strange location for Cartoon Network’s first hotel, but the establishment will be near Dutch Wonderland Amusement Park, a park that gets a lot of tourists with little kids through its gates.
And of course, the network is including Jake the Dog’s bacon pancakes in the ad copy for the hotel.
Enjoy bacon pancakes made by Jake from Adventure Time. Let Ice Bear make you a latte.
Watch a cartoon before anyone else in the world sees it at the outdoor amphitheater and movie screen. Swim in the brand-new resort-style pool under the careful eye of Gunter the Penguin Lifeguard. Enjoy the lawn games and fire pits from Summercamp Island.
With an indoor arcade, kids play area, coffee lounge, wine bar and Cartoon Network store, the Cartoon Network Hotel is a vacation destination in itself.
No word on whether there will be a sandwich making station as well, but here’s hoping.
The hotel is more than just an Adventure Time fan’s paradise, as many of the network properties will be featured in the various rooms and parts of the establishment. Adventure Time, We Bare Bears, The Powerpuff Girls, and Ben 10 are all part of the experience, which features an indoor pool, play area, and a Cartoon Network gift shop.
“With just the right mix of technology, design, and animation, we’re aiming to bring our characters to life in a way that we haven’t seen done before,” said Christina Miller, president of Cartoon Network, Adult Swim, and Boomerang, said according to SyFy Wire. “We can’t wait to be part of many family vacations with the ultimate Cartoon Network experience.”
CN is partnering with Palace Entertainment for the nine-acre hotel, which doesn’t have an official release date just yet. But the two are promising “Easter Eggs” for kids from various Cartoon Network shows, so the only way to get the full experience is to book a room there for yourself and check it all out.
