Lionsgate a plans to bring The Hunger Games and Divergent to Times Square, New York have been out on hold.
The studio had previously unveiled plans to bring an indoor entertainment center for these franchises with the help of Spain’s Parques Reunidos, a global leisure-park operator, to Times Square.
The planned attractions were to include a Hunger Games-inspired Peeta’s Bakery and the Capitol Confectionery; a flying-simulator attraction; a Divergent-themed obstacle course; and a John Wick: Chapter Two shooting ride where fans went head-to-head with a series of assailants.
But now the flagship Lionsgate indoor attraction in midtown Manhattan has been put on hold, even as the studio grows its location-based entertainment business elsewhere around the world.
Lionsgate on Monday said an indoor theme park set to bring Hunger Games- and Divergent-inspired attractions to China will launch on July 31 while another outdoor theme park, Lionsgate Movie World at Jeju Island, South Korea, will open in 2020.
