The Motiongate Theme Park in Dubai will be getting 2 new additions based on the 2 popular Lionsgate franchises: John Wick and Now You See Me in 2021. The upcoming ride, John Wick: Open Contract will have the riders in a version of the franchise’s famous hotel for killers: The Continental. As a part of the ride’s storyline the riders will have the option to either hunt or aid John in battle.
Jenefer Brown, executive vice president & head of Lionsgate’s global-live interactive & location-based entertainment had this to say: “You’ll get two different experiences depending on which path through the queue you choose to get on the ride,” she explained. “I think what’s going to be amazing for fans is to have the opportunity to walk through the lobby of the Continental and experience different key moments in the settings that took place in the films,” Brown wnet on to say: “This attraction, in particular, is really about setting the story by putting people in this very immersive environment, and then you really get the action as you get on the coaster. It’s 10 stories high, so there’s definitely a level of intensity that’s befitting of the ‘John Wick franchise that guests will experience.”
As for the “Now You See Me” ride, it will be called the “High Roller” coaster. The look will be similar to a casino similar to those that the Four Horsemen performed in prior to stealing the audience’s money.
Both these roller coasters, according to Brown, are expected to be added on in 2021 in addition to these rides making their way to various other locations including North America “at the right opportunity”.
