Lionsgate Shelves Plans for 'Hunger Games,' 'John Wick' Theme Park in NYC
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.
