Experiencias Xcaret has created some of the Riviera Maya’s most famous parks and attractions, including Xel-Ha, Xplor, Xenotes, Xoximilco, and of course Xcaret. Now, they are bringing the X to an entirely new name: Xenses.

Xenses will be the 6th park by Experiencias Xcaret, opening in Summer 2016.

The idea behind the new Xenses park is to explore all of your senses and challenge your mind using a blend of optical illusions, sensory experiences and mind-boggling activities. Experiencias Xcaret says,

“Here you’re going to reconnect with the power of your senses through innovative water, land and air activities. By the end, you’ll return to reality transformed into a Xensei, your own master.”

“Xenses is an unparalleled park, a place as fun as it is magical, as amazing as it is enigmatic, and as crazy as it is rational. Here, you’ll be the protagonist of this experience, in a place with real and imaginary settings that will surround your senses and take you to a fantastical world where your perception will be challenged.”

Over the past few weeks, Xenses has begun to reveal some of the 17 new attractions we can expect to find at the new park, although we’re sure that the sensory nature of the park means that these are the kinds of attractions you have to experience for yourself in order to truly understand the concept. The experience begins in an area called the Pinwheel, a space where reality is perceived in a different way. Then, the attractions and activities at Xenses will be divided into two circuits:

The first circuit will have The Way of Dwarfs and Giants, Xensatorium, Underground Arteries, The Eden and Xítrico Garden.

The second circuit offers The Heartbeat, Townville, Recamara, The Breather, A Slip on a Slide, Flutterfly, Sludgerie, Riverlaxing, Rain, Cloud and Marblelous.

Xenses is designed as a half-day tour, with two times available per day. You’ll be able to explore both circuits in about 5 hours or just enjoy some time in the relaxation areas and at the on-site eatery “Xnack”. The new park is located at Kilometer 282 of the Chetumal – Puerto Juarez Highway, setting it right by The Riviera Maya’s famous Xcaret and Xplor parks.

The park is set to open to the public in June 2016, and tickets will be on sale at www.XensesPark.com starting as early as April 1. Pre-sale tickets will be 20% off, and ticket prices are $59 USD for adults and $30 USD for kids (5 – 11 years old) and senior citizens.
