Ventura Entertainment is the second largest operator of amusement parks in the country with more than 2 million visitors per year.
Ventura Entertainment is the result of the merger between Dolphinaris, Grupo Entreteparq
• Dolphinaris operates 5 dolphinariums in Cancun, the Riviera Maya and Cozumel,
along with an aquatic park called Wet’n Wild in Cancun.

Magica” in Guadalajara.
• “Grupo Selvatica” manages an adventure and extreme attractions park in the Riviera
Since its inception, the Company has been making investments for over Ps$500 million in
Mexico and the USA. These investments will mature in the next 12 months with the
objective of driving the holding’s growth which as today encompasses over 1,500 coworkers
and 9 amusement parks with geographic diversification.
