First rendering revealed for Lionsgate theme park in South Korea

The first rendering of Lionsgate's upcoming theme park at the recently-opened Jeju Shinhwa World has been released.

Called Lionsgate Movie World, the development at Jeju Shinhwa – one of South Korea’s largest integrated resorts – will span 122,000sq m (1.3 million sq ft) and will be the largest Lionsgate attraction to date, with the venture being master planned, designed, and project managed by JRA.

Expected to open in 2020, Lionsgate has partnered with Hong Kong-based developer Landing International Development, who selected JRA to recreate the world of The Hunger Games, with the park to include a recreation of the Capitol and President Snow’s mansion, and a horror-themed area based on the Saw and Cabin in the Woods films. Split into six zones total, other Lionsgate properties to feature include Twilight and Now You See Me.

The park, which will be Lionsgate’s first branded outdoor theme park, will include a number of rides, attractions and 4D experiences, as well as streets and towns based on Lionsgate IPs. Each area will also include themed restaurants, cafés, souvenir shops and theatrical performances.

Lionsgate has high hopes for its theme parks and attractions division, with full parks coming not only to South Korea but also China. Last year, Lionsgate also opened the World of the Hunger Games at Motiongate Dubai and has plans for a number of Lionsgate Entertainment Cities in locations including New York and Madrid. Operating under a licensing model, the studio says it hopes to welcome 20 million visitors a year to its attractions portfolio by the end of 2020, generating US$250m (€203.5m, £181.3m) in profits over the next decade.
