Hunger Games attractions to open at motiongate Dubai

DUBAI, November 18, 2015

Two exciting Hunger Games-themed rides will feature in motiongate Dubai when it opens in 2016, Dubai Parks and Resorts said in a statement.

The two rides will include an immersive adventure which will take guests through the Capitol on board a hovercraft to see the world of Panem.

The second ride will be a launched roller coaster which transports guests from District 12 to the Capitol via a super high-speed Capitol bullet train.

With impressive staging that recreates life in Panem, visitors to motiongate Dubai will be taken on a very special tour, flying through some of the most iconic landmarks of the Capitol with brand new footage shot especially for Dubai Parks and Resorts. The adventure begins when guests board vehicles specially designed to replicate the hovercrafts from the film.

Guido Zucchi, general manager of motiongate Dubai, said: “This is a global first and we are extremely excited to have not one, but two rides inspired by The Hunger Games at the Lionsgate Zone opening in motiongate Dubai. We cannot wait to transfer life in Panem from the silver screen into an experience for fans and fun lovers from around the world!”   

Motiongate Dubai will become the region’s largest Hollywood-inspired theme park and will feature 27 rides and attractions spread across five different Zones - Sony Pictures Studios, DreamWorks, Lionsgate, Smurfs Village and the park’s entry boulevard, Studio Central. Both of The Hunger Games rides will be present in the Lionsgate zone along with an all new live stage show based on the hit films Step Up Revolution and Step Up All In.  

Alongside the exhilarating rides and attractions guests can sit and enjoy a meal at one of nine themed family-friendly restaurants, take a bite at any of the quick dinning kiosks along the park,  pick up some film-themed souvenirs at one of the 15 themed retail outlets or enjoy a show at the multi-purpose motiongate Theatre that will seat 1,000 guests. – TradeArabia News Service
