Hi folks,

 

I'm creating this topic to make a little on the Hopi Hari, the second largest theme park in America Latin, located in Brazil.

 

I'm Brazilian and I live in downtown São Paulo, 50 minutes from the park. I have the passport Annual (That's the same access as often as you want for one year) and then go several times.

 

There is no topic to date, 2011, talking about the Hopi Hari, the current situations and so on.

 

Hopi Hari is in the town of Vinhedo, São Paulo. The park has an area of ​​720 thousand m², with 58 attractions divided into five thematic areas, which are:

 

- Kaminda Mundi: Portrays the countries of Europe;

- Wild West: It depicts the old west of America;

- Infantasia: An area reserved for children with a theme of Sesame Street; That in 2012 will be replaced by Looney Tunes, because of the new 10-year contract with Warner Bros..

- Mistieri: portrays a lost continent, Egypt etc;

- Aribabiba: An area futuristic, with lots of color and joy; This area will also gain a new theme, only Justice League, reformulating its attractions and also gaining new

 

This year, he was made a deal with Warner Bros., to add the Looney Tunes and Justice League in Hopi Hari.

 

The contract is for 10 years and this, in 2012, the park will spend $ 4 $ 60 million in new attractions (we hope a new roller coaster), marketing, redesign of areas and other factors.

 

The last time I visited the Hopi Hari was on April 22, 2011, when he was rolling the event "Hopi Night Eléktron" an event that happens at night until 21 o'clock, with 3D projections (3D glasses they give free for everyone), laser's, lasermans, dancers, a true ballad in the open. Or rather, a "copy", but very good, the event which takes place at Disney's California Adventure, "ElecTRONica." The "Hopi Night Eléktron" just a few weeks ago, but for the holidays, has already scheduled another event, more for families.

 

Since this park was very crowded, we decided to buy the "Hopi Pass" (a paid extra passport, which you access the attractions without having to stand in line, as with 'Fast Pass'/'Express' of Disney/Universal ..).

 

We went to Montezum, the largest wooden roller coaster in América Latin; the "La Tour Eiffel", Intamin Giant Drop; in Katapul (Thunderlooper or King Kobra), a loop that goes back and forth; in Vurang, a roller coaster in the dark, Intamin indoor; Evolution; the River Rapids "Rio Bravo" and other attractions.

 

It was a wonderful day!

Hopi Hari recommend to anyone wanting to visit Brazil. It is a great option for a pass play.

 

Check out some photos:

Hopi Hari is a very good park. They recently signed a contract with Time Warner and anounced a 60 million USD renovation including 4 new rides and re-theming of some areas to include the characters from Justice League, Looney Toones and Penelope Pitstop.

 

The renovation will start in october and the park will anounce soon which are gonna be the new rides. There are talks about a new coaster - and we, brazilians, are really hoping it`s true.

 

Lucas, congratulations on the photos. really cool.

Montezum can be very different depending on which train you ride. One of them (I don't remember what color) is pretty smooth, making it a great ride. The other one shakes too much and makes it look more like Rolling Thunder. Still it is a very good coaster, specially if you come on halloween, when they switch one of the trains so you can ride backwards, if you want to.

 

Evolution is very nice, but they run it in a too short cycle.

 

Two very fun things to do at Hopi Hari: riding their zip-line across the lake and flying on the sky coaster above the same lake.

Today we had a great news!

 

From the 'Hora do Horror' (Time of Horror), the horror event that happens in the park, Montezum, will return to operate with 5 cars in two trains as before. It will give even more to feel the "air-times" the roller coaster.

 

The Evolution is a much larger cycle. They are returning four for each side, depending on the size of the queue, the operator leaves even more time.

 

Now we'll wait for news, new attractions, new areas of the Looney Tunes and Justice League and the long-awaited new roller coaster! : D

We don't get to see a lot of photos or reviews from the Brazilian parks so thanks for taking the time to share this with us.

 

By they way, this would make a really good trip report to go on our front page. The only thing we ask is that you upload the photos to TPR instead of linking them externally. If you need any help doing this, feel free to send me a private message and I can walk you through it.

 

Thanks again and welcome to the site!

Wow this looks like a really nice park! No wonder it saw such a jump in attendance last year. I'll bet it will pass Six Flags Mexico soon with the Time Warner contract Lucaz was talking about. It'll be fun to see what that deal brings for the park in the future as far as attractions (coasters?!) go.

Hello guys!

Lucas, your trip on Hopi Hari was very good!

----

The theme this year of "Time of Horror" of Hopi Hari is "Epidemic" (Epidemia in Portuguese) and we already have

the poster of the park, see below. The Hopi Hari has a Halloween very different from the others years, as the Playcenter (other park in Brazil). every year has a theme of movie/horror to scare visitors.

I have pictures in my computer of monster Katakumb ( ride of terror ). But I'm not getting post pictures here. = (

Those are some great picture! i wish there was a few more of Katapul, but any new pictures of this park are great since i's so far away. One day i will eventually make the trek down to brazil so i can ride the original schwarzkopf shuttle. I kida missed it by 22 Years at KD! Yeah i'm quite the schwarzkopf fanboy The rest of the park looks well worth the vist too, there's a nice mix of other rides.

 

I need to get out to africa to to ride golden loop as well. It's sort of comforting to know that with all the Schwarzkopf shuttles that have been destroyed that the two originals are still with us, They both look like they have finally found good homes as it's been in brazil longer than it was at Alton towers or KD. And the other also looks like it's found a great home too, they both fit very well in their parks and it seems there have been no noise or height complaints anymore .

 

But overall-good trip report, there are some really excellent photos on there. I especially like the POV shot on Evolution, It's just gorgeous. The rest are great quality as well. Worth the read too!

Yes i've hear of that one also. It's nice that there is a looping star and shuttle in the same place it's better than NE USA :/ , you know, as far as Schwarzkopfs go. back in the 80's, Laser was even down there! it went to Dorney, and now it's traveling in Germany but i think that one used to be at Playcenter as well.
