先週オープンしたアミューズメントパーク「トンデミ」大人も子供も汗だくで楽しめるその正体に注目

The announcer is essentially saying, "Let's take a look at the nature [of this place]." In more colloquial English we'd say, "Let's see what this place is like."

    「注目」 is far more nuanced than just "take a look" or "see what it's like". – l'électeur Jun 12 '17 at 1:08

    「注目」 might be as nuanced as "observe", but colloquially speaking the phrase as a newscaster would use is as you've already said so I don't think there's a need to edit, though l'électeur is correct that the word doesn't simply mean to "take a look" – psosuna Jun 12 '17 at 21:42

My translation would go like this:

The eye-catching characteristic features of the amusement park "Tondemi" opened last week where both adults and children can play in sweaty fun.

OR

The amusement park "Tondemi" just opened last week where both adults and children can play in sweaty fun. Its characteristic features are eye-catching
