Marcos Jiménez, the park's director and creator, says that the idea is that people have an “immersive experience” in regards to this tradition, considered as part of the World Heritage.

Jimenéz explained that the park's concept was created four years ago and that movies such as “Spectre”, the James Bond movie that recreated a Day of the Dead parade in Mexico City, and “Coco”, from Disney Pixar, strengthened the idea to finalize the project.

Visitors can also visit the cemetery, full of candles and flowers, where they can find a hologram, travel in a “trajinera”, raft, decorated with skulls and flowers, visiting a little Mexican town, or turning into a skull.
