Lionsgate



The odds were not in favor of Lionsgate's planned New York City theme park, featuring "Hunger Games" and "John Wick" attractions.

In 2017, the studio unveiled plans to partner with Spain's Parques Reunidos, a global park operator, to launch Lionsgate Entertainment City at 11 Times Square.

The attractions were to include Peeta's Bakery and the Capitol Confectionery; a "Divergent"-themed obstacle course; and a "John Wick: Chapter Two" shooting ride where visitors could take on a series of assassins.

Now, those plans have been put on hold, as Parques Reuniodos backed out.

Earlier this week, Lionsgate announced the opening of a giant indoor theme park in China on July 31. The studio is also opening a similar park on Jeju Island, South Korea in 2020.

Lionsgate's location-based entertainment business includes the Lionsgate Zone in the Dubai's Motiongate theme park and and the "Saw" Escape Room in Las Vegas.
