… Because doesn’t every kid want to fight to the death IRL?
Lionsgate has announced that they are moving forward with plans to build a Hunger Games theme park. In a recent report to investors, executives announced that they are “deep in conversations with prospective partners on four continents to explore theme park attractions and other location-based entertainment opportunities” based on the series.
Um, okay. If the attraction includes a kissing training camp with Josh Hutcherson, then sign me up. But running away from poisonous fog or Tracker Jackers is not really my idea of a fun vacation — mostly because I like to return from my vacations alive.
Isn’t this just the oddest idea for a theme park ever? Will they make visitors hunt for their own concessions? Will lines to attractions be replaced by the Reaping? The possibilities are endless, I suppose.
Although, the company is also working on a mobile game partnership and a Hunger Games traveling museum for those who want to opt out of the theme park experience. Yes, please!
Tell me, my little tributes… would you ever visit this ultra odd attraction?
