WTF Alert: A Hunger Games Theme Park?

… 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?

    This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve ever heard of. Someone please explain to the children that the point of the story (and other similar stories) is not supposed to be mere entertainment! Open your eyes! The point of the book is completely missed by these tweeny boppers and the fat asses who exploit them and who just want to cash in huge bucks. The hunger games ARE real. A theme park makes a mockery of this idea. We grow closer and closer to a societal construct like Panem every day. W

    I absolutely agree with Elissa. The whole point of the story is to emulate what a world dominated by a tyrannical powergroup would be like, something which is practically spot on in today’s world. I don’t believe making an amusement park out of such a sick concept is beneficial to anyone other than the people that actually get to make bucks out of it. This capitalism-centred society is why the world is the way it is today.
