Parque Aztlán, Chapultepec

The Parque Aztlán, also called the Parque Urbano Aztlán, is an amusement park and entertainment center pretty much in the heart of Chapultepec Park. It operated for more than 50 years as the Feria de Chapultepec, originally opened in 1964. That park closed in 2019 and since then it’s been entirely renovated and most of the old rides and games replaced.

The re-opening of the park was the decision of voters in a public referendum. At this writing, in mid-2024, it’s reopened, but not everything planned has been re-launched. Today, you’ll find most of the major rides operating, but the main attraction is wide open public spaces. For those who’ve hauled the kids to a major amusement park, it comes as a relief that this one is also compact. Walks from attraction to attraction don’t require golf carts. There are lots of rides for younger kids. And there is plenty to occupy parents too.

Parque Aztlán, when it’s complete, will offer:

  • Free admission. You really can explore the entire place.
  • The signature Ferris wheel is 85 meters in height.
  • The two story Venetian carousel was imported from Italy.
  • Immersive theater recounting the history of Ancient Tenochtitlan.
  • Jurassic themed roller coaster some 540 meters in length.
  • Multiple children’s and family game areas.
  • Lots of room for eating and resting.

The park is also set to host a new headquarters for the Museo Dolores Olmedo which is to share some of its art collection within the same facility. The Foro Aztlán is a giant open-air cultural space slated to include folk art, shows and entertainment for younger audiences.

Hours: Tuesday through Friday, 12 p.m. – 8 p.m., Weekends, 10 a.m. – 10 p.m. (Closed Mondays)
