《饥饿游戏》主题公园将于2019年前在亚特兰大开业

Hunger Games fans may get to find out for themselves if the odds1 are forever in their favor.

《饥饿游戏》的粉丝将有机会亲自试试看好运是否会永远眷顾自己。

A 100-acre theme park dedicated2 to the blockbuster movie franchise3 starring Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth is set to open in Atlanta by 2019, Lions Gate Entertainment Corp confirmed on Monday.

It will feature specially4 designed roller coasters to give visitors an immersive experience of the story about heroine Katniss Everdeen. There will also be a theatrical5 section with dance shows in tribute to the movie Step Up and attractions based on Divergent.

Though Hunger Games rests on the idea of children fighting to the death, producers insist they have arrived at an intelligent and fascinating model.

Tim Palen, chief brand officer of Lions Gate, told the New York Times he has been working on the idea since the first movie came out three years ago.

'The more we thought about it, the more we realized there was a major opportunity,' he told the newspaper. 'Not just to create something smart and captivating that Hunger Games fans would love, but to bring all of our franchises6 alive in new ways.'

The production company has licensed7 two different firms to develop the site, which will be twinned with an indoor entertainment center in Hengqin, China, slated8 to open in 2018.
