“Great Price for 5 Hours of Energy Burning for 4-Year-Olds”
Reviewed 4 July 2014

We went on Thursday and there were virtually no lines. My twin 4-year-old boys would stay on a ride and tell the attendant "otra vez" and would go over and over to their hearts' content!
The price was very reasonable. For $85, our family of 4 got 5 hours of as many rides as we could ride, parking, lunch, and snacks.
The majority of the rides were for little kids but there were some big kid rides too. Lots of variety for them to try. Because this park seemed to focus on little kids, it was very kid friendly.
My boys loved the dinosaur play area. The detail of the dinosaurs was impressive. There were mats at the bottoms of the slides, bumpers under the teeter totters, grab bars and safety rails at tops of ladders, high sides on the slides. It is also enclosed by two giant snakes so it's easy to monitor their locations.
There are lots of bathrooms with at least one bigger stall to accommodate you and a couple kids. My only bathroom complaint is that the spray soap dispenser is at preschooler head height and one of my boys, who likes to do everything himself, sprayed his eyes with soap.
The rides were clean and well maintained. The staff was professional and did a great job of maintaining their rules. Everything felt safe.
The parking lot is right next to the entrance so there is no long walks to the park.
Getting there - we printed the directions that we got from their website and the highway numbers did not correspond to what was on our map. If you have a GPS or can use Google Maps/Bing Maps, use that instead. We got lost.

“A standard of excellence in Guatemala”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

There is always a lot of people and the lines can sometimes be long but it is worth it if you love amusement parks. Everything is clean and well taken care of, the food is expensive considering the quality but it's safe to eat. The roller costers and other rides are great fun and you can get a card with 10 rides for a fair price.

“Great fun for the whole family”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

It can be a bit too crowded sometimes, but the amusement park and the zoo have been a favorite place for my family for nearly a decade.

“WeekEnd Fun”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

It may be not as big as the most famous Amusement Parks in the world, but Mundo Petapa is actually world-class! Although this place caters more on the Guatemalan workers as one of their benefits, a non-member can come in with an inexpensive fee.
1. The place itself is well-maintained and clean. The attractions are strategically located near each other. There is a locker room for a fee for people who have bags that need to be stored.
2. The rides are good, although do not expect much G-Force defying attractions.
3. There is a Cultural part of the park where it is good to people watch, or participate in public dances to Marimba and Cumbia music.
4. The zoo is good, too. It seems like the animals are well taken cared. There are several peacocks and peahens with free range all around the area for your amusement.
This place is not exactly something that will blow your mind off, but it is a very pleasant time to spend for a weekend to blend in with the locals in Guatemala city.
