The Internet Is Kicking Off About The New Hunger Games Theme Park & TBH, We Kinda Get It

There's mixed emotions, that's for sure.

The Hunger Games books and movies are set in a future in which poverty is rife and certain districts only exist to create resources for the super-rich Capitol… and their children fight to the death for the Capitol’s amusement. 

And now this has been turned into a theme park… kinda.

The World Of The Hunger Games opened on October 20th 2017 in Dubai and is part of the Lionsgate zone at the Motiongate park. 

The Hunger Games section features a hovercraft simulator which shows a tour of Panem, a Capitol Bullet Train roller coaster and even Peeta’s Bakery for some snacks.

Oh, and you can totally hang out with Peacekeepers. 

On top of that, guests can interact with the coal miners from District 12 which happens to be Katniss’s home district where her father died in a coal mine explosion. 

Their lives may well be tragic in the books, but in The World Of The Hunger Games, the miners put on quite the lively show for park guests. 

Despite references to some of the more depressing parts of the story, there are nods to the happier, more empowering elements: the three-fingered salute and the mocking jay pin, for instance. 

However, fans really aren't happy that this theme park has opened, with people questioning whether the creators even got the general grasp of the books.

Sounds fun, hey? *eye roll*
