Oh thanks for that info, Sounded a little fishy now looking back at it, why buy a new coaster when half the rides you have aren't working most of the year? It would be better to fix those then go for something even bigger imo.


This coaster was bought in 2011 as part of a USD100million investment and just two months after the coaster arrived in Brazil the girl died at the park and they never had the money to build it. A few months ago the park lost the ownership of this coaster to one of it's investors, who took the coaster as payment for the debt the park had with him. He then sold the coaster do MAPS in Malaysia in September.

Hopi Hari closed it's doors in August and remained closed for about 45 days. The park declared bankrupcy and filed a request for judicial reorganization. The justice allowed the park to reopen with the condition that the park developed a long term plan to pay off the debts. That's why, I believe, they lied about the coaster opening in 2017, so they could attract new investors and more public.

And they're closed again...


The Hopi Hari amusement park in Vinhedo, in the interior of São Paulo, is expected to close for at least a month.

Last Sunday (14), officials were advised that they would receive paid leave for 30 days.

The company said that anyone who has already purchased tickets can request a refund or change the "passport" for a new one, with a validity deadline of December 31.

The store announced on Friday (12) that it would make a "break" in its activities, without predicting when it would work again. This weekend, visitors who bought tickets faced the gates closed .

Hopi Hari's debts total more than R $ 400 million ($130 Million USD). Among the creditors are the BNDES, the Vinhedo City Hall and CPFL Energia, which cut the light of the park on April 10 - on the following weekends, the place worked with a generator.

The park filed a petition for judicial recovery in August 2016, which has not yet been approved. The new owner, José Luiz Abdalla, acquired the shareholding control of the company in December 2016, with the promise of building a hotel complex with 1,200 apartments and an on-site convention center.

According to the recovery process in the Vinhedo region, the company owes more than R $ 8 million ($2.5 Million USD) in labor claims. In January last year, park officials protested against the delay in wages.

And so the saga continues. This is the park that just won't stay dead.

Oddly the coaster still hasn't shown up at MAPS and the park is due to open next month. Severely late as well since it was due to open in 2016.

I'm sorry but the renovation just feels like they painted a few places here and there and turned up the saturation of the pictures on Instagram.

Hi guys!
Now it is happening the reopening of the Hopi Hari Theme Park! Throughout the day I post pictures of how everything is very beautiful after the great renovation.

Some news!
- La Tour Eiffel (Giant Drop), returns to the catalog of attractions of the park in the second half of 2018, all renovated (rumors have appeared that the park will put gondolas StandUp).

- Between 2018/2019 the park will inaugurate 3 new attractions, being 2 for the children / family audience and 1 for the adult public.

Sorry for bad English, I do not know much.

Hopi Hari Theme Park 2017 - Brazil

Postby André.Vides » Tue Aug 08, 2017 2:45 pm

It's personal, the Hopi Hari does not stop. They are holding budgets for a likely Roller Coaster for 2018/2019. In a fan group a high-ranking employee inside the park began posting tips on what they are seeing and noting the fan suggestions.
In a poll conducted by fans to manufacturers B&M wins shot as the favorite, because in Latin America has no model
