Hunger Games & Twilight Theme Park to Open in South Korea

Now You See Me

Lionsgate Movie World is now scheduled to open at Jeju Shinhwa World in South Korea in 2019.

Nearly two years after we first reported it, Lionsgate and Landing Jeju Development Co.

The theme park will be called Lionsgate Movie World, which will encompass a big plot of land in Jeju Shinwa World locating in a neighboring island in South Korea.

But as excited as we are to experience the Team Edward/Team Jacob dueling brood-coaster-or the Jesse Eisenberg Close-Up Magic Experience-it's the Hunger Games park that strikes us as the most fascinatingly baffling.

Hyundai to Take on Tesla With New Long-Range EV Focus
The return of the power unit of the new model is 120 kilowatts, equivalent to 163 horsepower and 400 Nm. The new fuel cell SUV is just one green model Hyundai plans to introduce globally in the coming years.

What are your thoughts on a Hunger Games-themed park? While that may seem like quite a large area, it's only one-tenth the size of Disney World's Epcot park, which covers a whopping 300 acres.

The attractions would open in staggered phases in the coming years.

While we get the idea of a theme park about Panem-creepy people walking aroud in freakish outfits, a ride that simulates the Battle at the Capital-how is a theme park about the rainy, gray Forks, Washington a fun getaway for the whole family? The outdoor attraction is targeting to begin construction sometime in 2018. The 1.3-million-square-foot venue will create seven distinct parks, each themed around one of Lionsgate's blockbuster films. These scenes will include various rides, four-dimensional streets, cities, restaurants, shopping venues and entertainment shows.

In partnership with Landing Jeju Development Co., Ltd., the developer of Jeju Shinhwa World in South Korea, Lionsgate plans to open the "Lionsgate Movie World", which will be centered around the famous film properties the studio is renowned for. That may be a bit of an exaggeration, but some sort of Hunger Games laser tag or other competitive attraction would seem like the most obvious thing in the world.
