Lionsgate has announced a June 24 re-opening of its critically-acclaimed world’s first “vertical” theme park in Novotown on China’s Henqin Island near Hong Kong and Macau. The park features one-of-a-kind immersive attractions based on such motion picture blockbusters as The Hunger Games, The Twilight Saga, Now You See Me and more.
The date coincides with China’s popular “Dragon Boat” long holiday weekend celebration.
“We’re pleased to welcome our cast members and guests back to Lionsgate Entertainment World and glad we can accommodate the tremendous pent up demand for this type of experience,” said Jenefer Brown, Executive Vice President and Head of Lionsgate Global Live, Interactive and Location-Based Entertainment. “The health and safety of our employees and theme park guests is paramount. We’ve worked carefully and thoughtfully to implement appropriate measures and procedures to ensure our guests will once again enjoy all of the Lionsgate movie adventures the park brings to life.”
With extensive health and safety precautions, operational partner Village Roadshow Theme Parks will be able to re-open Lionsgate Entertainment World® at 50 percent capacity. For instance, its “one guest one disinfection” policy assures that every VR headset, table, countertop, ride, etc. will be disinfected following every use. Additionally, cashless/digital payment for tickets, merchandise and food will be implemented.
To help support all heroes in healthcare during this time, Lionsgate Entertainment World® will also be offering complimentary admission to all healthcare workers who show their official healthcare documentation and identification through December 31, 2020.
