As 90s kids we all grew up on Cartoon Network, watching Dexter’s Laboratory, Powerpuff Girls, Courage the Cowardly Dog, and Samurai Jack among other things.
The Cartoon Network is set to open its first-ever hotel near a Pennsylvania theme park next summer.
The Cartoon Network Hotel in Lancaster, Pennsylvania has begun taking reservations for its June 2020 opening, and its released the first sneak-peak look inside.
Images show a very colorful exterior, artwork and decor featuring beloved characters, and a kid-friendly outdoor area with a pool and slide.
From the moment you enter the lobby, you’ll realize this is unlike any place your family has stayed before. With our character-themed guest rooms and Dream Suites, it’s like having a sleepover…in a cartoon!’ the website for the property reads.
Even thinking about all those hours spent watching these shows on TV can make us extremely nostalgic. And when we find ourselves getting nostalgic, more often than not, we wish we could go back and do it all over again.
Well, the laws of physics won’t allow you to travel back in time.
