A 10-Storey High John Wick Themed Roller Coaster Is Opening In Dubai

Heads up John Wick fans, a theme park in Dubai is opening up an attraction based around the dog-loving assassin.

The Wick attraction will be opening up in Motiongate, a Hollywood inspired them park, and will give fans of the flicks a chance to take part in an immersive John Wick experience - sounds good, eh?

John Wick: Open Contract is a fairly terrifying looking, 10-storey roller coaster that offers thrill-seekers to either experience the ride as Wick or as an assassin trying to kill him.

The theme park already has attractions based on Zombieland, The Hunger Games, Green Lantern and Underworld and reckon a John Wick themed ride could be the next big crowd-pleaser.

Lionsgate has released some artist renderings of how the attraction might look, complete with a scaled-down version of Continental.

Lionsgate's Jenefer Brown told Variety: "You'll get two different experiences depending on which path through the queue you choose to get on the ride.

"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.

"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."

Brown went on to say that John Wick was 'perfect for location- based entertainment' and if Dubai is a bit too far to travel, she also hinted that a similar ride could be coming nearer to the UK.

She added: "It's just really a matter of finding the right opportunity and in mature markets like North America or Europe, those aren't as frequent as in other parts of the world."

The theme park is hoping to open up the attraction next year. You can find out more about Motiongate here.

Lionsgate CEO John Feltheimer said during an earnings call, via Deadline: "We're also busy preparing scripts for the next two instalments of our John Wick action franchise, with John Wick 4 slated to hit theatres Memorial Day weekend 2022.

"We hope to shoot both John Wick 4 and 5 back to back when Keanu becomes available early next year."
