Lionsgate studio to open the world’s first vertical theme park in China this summer

Published on : Friday, May 24, 2019

Some of Lionsgate’s most popular film franchises from Hunger Games to Twilight will be brought to life when the studio opens the world’s first vertical theme park in China this summer.

 

Lionsgate Entertainment World will offer several adventures including a virtual reality motorcycle ride based on Twilight, a maximum-security prison breakout like in Escape Plan and a replica of The Capitol lobby from Hunger Games, along with shops where guests can adorn themselves in the film’s distinctive fashion.

 

More than 25 rides and virtual reality experiences will be housed in a sleek, futuristic looking bean-shaped building standing 10 storeys high. The theme park, which will also include attractions based on films like Divergent, Now You See Me and Gods of Egypt, is expected to open in July on Hengqin Island located in Zhuhai, China.

 

“We found a way to create this theme park experience inside of one box over multiple floors,” said Jenefer Brown, senior vice-president of Global Live and Location Based Entertainment at Lionsgate.

 

Brown added, “We created experiences that are immersive, that tell stories and are organic to the brands. It’s a mix of all the cutting-edge attractions that you’ll find in entertainment right now.”

 

The Santa Monica, California-based company expects to have around 1.5 million park visitors this year.

 

“We would complement Macau,” Brown said. “The idea is to have Vegas and Orlando right next to each other and create this super tourist destination … People are already coming here. But we’re on the early side in terms of development on the island. It’s growing into this dedicated kind of entertainment tourist place and virtual containment vessel.”

 

Lionsgate Entertainment World would be the first movie-themed park on Hengqin Island.
