The Wizarding World of Harry Potter over in Florida and the Warner Brothers Studio Tour in London might be the best things to have ever happened to planet Earth, but it sounds like there might be another book based theme park in the works, ready to blast the wand out of our hand and replace it with a bow and arrow.
Fans of The Hunger Games should get very excited, as apparently the books and films are currently being considered to be transformed into a real life theme park. We’re RIDIC EXCITED about this, but also a little bit scared. Would you fancy entering the arena?
It sounds like we might have to add a trident, a backpack of survival tools and some streamlined trousers to our holiday suitcase in a few years, as Lionsgate studios who make the movies have been approached with plans for the Panem park.
The CEO of the film giants, Jon Feltheimer told analysts during a conference call about the studio’s earnings report that they’d been approached about the theme park in two territories, and was currently considering the possibility.
So naturally, we’ve spent our entire day daydreaming about what a Hunger Games theme park would actually be like. Would we enter into the desolate District 12 and do a bit of coal shovelling before jumping on the first ride and catching the train to head across to the bright and beautiful Capitol? Could we grab a hot dog shaped like a mockingjay and do the drinks arrive in little sponser parachutes?
We’d definitely get to ride on a chariot that looks like it’s on fire, and then be taken into an epic big space ship ride and ejected out into the arena, but this is where we get a bit confused about what the theme park would actually involve.... On handing over your admissions fee, do you then automatically become a tribute in an every man for himself style blood bath? GULP. Not quite Mickey Mouse, eh?
As long as there’s a topless Liam Hemsworth and Josh Hutcherson wandering round for us to pose with, and maybe an Effie Trinket giving out greasy burgers, we’ll be well up for it.
Would you like to see a Hunger Games theme park? What do you reckon it would include? Chuck us a few ideas in the comments.
