Players can walk through themed rooms with interactive technology and holograms and create a Bank, Water Works, Electric Company, Train Station, Title Deeds and other elements.
Love it or hate it, Monopoly has, is and will always be one of the most iconic games over. Friendships have ended, bones have been smashed and families have broken over this game, and it's only about to get better. The game that has entertained us for decades is now set to up the notch by becoming as real as it can get. Within a few months from now, the world will be able to experience a transformed Monopoly, like never before. Monopoly DreamsTM, the world's first fully immersive Monopoly-themed attraction, is set to open later this year at The Peak Galleria in Hong Kong, reported The Standard. Screaaaaaaam!
The facility that is set to open at The Peak which is regarded as the ‘King of Property’ in the Hong Kong edition of Monopoly, the new immersive setup will span 20,000 sq. ft. It comprises both an indoor and outdoor area. It's a state-of-the-art facility equipped with AR, hologram, and 4D interactive game technology that is aimed at letting visitors experience the game outside of the board of Monopoly. It will give players a chance to walk through themed rooms and create iconic Monopoly elements like a Bank, Water Works, Electric Company, Train Station, Title Deeds, Community Chest cards, Jail and Chance cards.
Speaking about the facility, Gary Chan, Chief Operations Officer of Monopoly DreamsTM, said, "I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all our supporters. Without their enthusiastic participation, our success would not be possible. Monopoly is a part of everyone’s childhood, and Monopoly DreamsTM is the first of its kind, and will give everybody a surreal Monopoly experience like never before."
It is also worth mentioning that apart from the regular features of the game, players will also be part of some kind of murder mystery style subplot. As part of the same, a secretive villain among the players will try to steal one of Mr. Monopoly's diamonds from the residence and players will have to get to the bottom of the mystery.
Meanwhile, an IT-themed Monopoly is coming out this year. USAopoly has joined hands with Warner Bros Consumer Products and has revealed that they are working together to make the creepiest indoor game ever. The game is described as "MONOPOLY: IT makes buying, selling, and trading places in and around Derry, Maine the key to winning this uncanny twist of 'The Landlord’s Game'. Using tokens of iconic items such as an Inhaler, Paper Boat, and Bicycle, players can draw Encounters and Phenomena cards as they build Suburban Houses and Apartment Buildings on locations like Pennywise’s Cistern and the Derry Sewers." MONOPOLY: IT will be out later this year.
The announcement of the IT-themed Monopoly comes at a time when everyone eagerly awaits IT: Chapter Two that will be released on September 6, 2019. The sequel will be fast forward 27 years into the future and tell us the tale of the losers' club and Pennywise. Only this time, the kids are all grown up and Pennywise is well, Pennywise. James McAvoy as Bill, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, Andy Bean as Stanley Uris, and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike are the part of the grown-up losers' club. In a recent interview, Jessica Chastain revealed that the upcoming IT movie has one of the bloodiest scenes ever in the history of horror movies, "In the movie, there’s a scene — Someone said on set that it’s the most blood that’s ever been in a horror film. In a scene. The next day, I was pulling blood out of my eyeballs — like, fake blood.” It is the year for IT!
