Lionsgate has announced that it will reopen its world’s first “vertical” theme park, Lionsgate Entertainment World, on June 24 in Novotown on China’s Henqin Island near Hong Kong and Macau.
The park features unique attractions based on blockbuster franchises like “The Hunger Games,” “The Twilight Saga,” “Now You See Me,” and more. This date coincides with China’s “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.”
The park will reopen with new health and safety precautions at 50 percent capacity. For example, its “one guest one disinfection” policy ensures that every VR headset, table, countertop, ride, etc. will be disinfected after each use. In addition, cashless and digital payment for tickets, merchandise and food will be implemented. There’s so specific word on if masks will be required for guests and cast members.
To support those working in healthcare during this critical time, Lionsgate Entertainment World will also offer complimentary admission to all healthcare workers who show their official healthcare documentation and ID through Dec. 31, 2020.
