DUBAI — Remember the movie ‘The Hunger Games’? Remember how miserable everyone looked and how dreary the districts were? It only makes sense then that a new theme park has opened based on the blockbuster film and best-selling books.
The ‘World Hunger Games’ theme park has just opened at Motiongate in Dubai, featuring all 12 Districts, the Capitol Bullet Train (it has a vertical loop and a 90-degree reverse spike!), Peacekeepers on the ground and even a presidential welcome from President Snow himself. Guests can also dine at Peta’s Bakery and meet the colourful Effie Trinket and Caesar Flickerman.
Judging by initial photos of the park, it all looks pretty accurate. But don’t worry, unlike the books and movies, there’s absolutely no risk of being murdered or hunted down by a gang of crazed kids. The odds, as they say, are ever in your favour.
