“Hunger Games” fans can experience their own reaping into the winner-takes-all arena at a new indoor theme park in China.
Lionsgate is opening Lionsgate Entertainment World, which will feature around 25 attractions based on the studio’s film properties, which include “Hunger Games,” “Divergent,” and “Twilight.” The 22,000-square meters indoor theme park is set to open July 31 in Hengqin, China, an hour from Hong Kong.
“From escaping the Capitol to braving the mental and physical challenges of Dauntless to taking on a newborn vampire army with Jacob and the Wolf Pack, we can’t wait for fans to step into the worlds of their favorite films to create their own authentic adventures,” said Jenefer Brown, Lionsgate’s senior vp of global live and location-based entertainment in a statement.
The immersive attractions include “Hunger Games – Mockingjay Flight,” a 3D motion simulator ride; “The Twilight Saga: Midnight Ride” VR experience; and “The Divergent Series – Fear Simulator.” The movie “Gods of Egypt” will be featured in a “VR roller coaster.”
