Monopoly attraction to open in Hong Kong Q3 2019
POSTED 10 Jan 2019 . BY Luke Cloherty
A new Hong Kong attraction will bring the Monopoly board game to life through an immersive, interactive 4D experience featuring augmented reality and holograph technology.

Monopoly Dreams, based in Hong Kong’s Peak Galleria leisure and shopping complex, will spread across 20,000 sq ft (1,858sq m) of indoor and outdoor space.

The attraction will bring classic game features to life, such as train stations, the water works, the bank and title deeds, as well as community chest and chance cards.

It will be the world’s first ever Monopoly-themed attraction when it opens in Q3 of this year and will also have a souvenir shop and food counter for visitors.

"We're not only dedicated to bringing an immersive, interactive experience for all generations of people in Hong Kong but we're also offering a new destination for tourists," said Gary Chan King-Pong, chief operations officer of Monopoly Dreams.

Monopoly was created 84 years ago and is one of the world’s most popular family board games. 300 million sets have sold globally since then in 114 countries and 47 languages.

Meanwhile, Hong Kong welcomed 58.6 million visitors in the first 11 months of last year, a 10.7 per cent uplift on the same period in 2017, according to the most recent data from the Hong Kong Tourism Board.
