Could A ‘Hunger Games’ Theme Park Be Headed to Georgia?
Could the odds of a Hunger Games theme park be in Georgia’s favor? If you believe recent reports, then yes!
The state could very well be the home of a new theme park based on the teen dystopian adventure series according to reports from The Atlanta Business Chronicle. A 700-acre site west of I-75 in Bartow County is rumored to be where execs are eyeing the location for the new park, but the Chronicle wasn’t able to get an official statement from the studio.
In addition to its booming entertainment industry, Georgia is home to where the majority of The Hunger Games franchise filmed, making it the perfect location candidate for the park.
The studio reportedly feels that The Hunger Games franchise can see the same kind of success and longevity that Harry Potter has seen, which is a reason behind the consideration to move forward with the park.
The Hunger Games will also get a park across seas, with plans previously announced fora Dubai-based theme park headed to the country in 2016. “The new Hollywood-themed park, Motiongate Dubai, is currently expected to include a Lionsgate zone that features Hunger Games-inspired attractions and retail facilities, as well as a DreamWorks Animation zone,” reported EW.
The final film in the franchise, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 2, heads to theaters November 20, 2015.
