In case you missed it: The Hunger Games theme park set for Dubai!
Good news for UAE (and international) fans of The Hunger Games franchise. Dubai’s Hollywood- themed attraction, Motiongate Dubai, has announced that they’ll be partnering with entertainment company Motiongate to bring The Hunger Games to the theme park!
Fans will be able to enjoy rides, attractions and gift shops based on the highly successful franchise when the theme park finally opens in October 2016. Motiongate Dubai is set to span over a whopping four million feet and will also include a section based on the popular Step Up movies.
Dubai Parks and Resorts Chief Executive Officer, Raed Al Nuaimi, said in a press statement: “We are thrilled to be working with a Hollywood studio whose creative resources, spirit of innovation and vision of the entertainment experience are so closely aligned with our own. Lionsgate's Hunger Games, Step Up and other signature properties are the perfect centerpiece for one of the most visionary new theme parks in the world. Through this partnership we are offering even more for the whole family to enjoy on their visit and are confident that Motiongate Dubai will set a global benchmark as the ultimate movie themed destination.”
Motiongate Dubai hopes to attract three million tourists annually with their 27 themed rides when they launch next year. Until then we have the final film instalment, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2, to look forward to.
