Cartoon Network invites its fan base onto LBE platforms

Almost three years ago, Erik Resnick, SVP – Business Development and Commercial Strategy for Cartoon Network, Boomerang and Adult Swim, began to research the Location Based Entertainment marketplace to identify where Cartoon Network could best bring value to potential partners. His first step was to bring in industry veteran George Wade of Bay Laurel Advisors to help him navigate this new space.

The quest is becoming a reality. Cartoon Network, part of global media giant Turner, a WarnerMedia company, has partnered with Parques Reunidos and Palace Entertainment, owner/operator of some 60+ parks and amusement facilities around the world, to develop the Cartoon Network Hotel, a 165-room, destination hotel on nine acres in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania.
