The "Jumanji – The Adventure" Theme Park Is Being Built Right Now

If you were a small child with an overactive imagination in the mid-1990s, you will surely recall the horror you felt after watching the original "Jumanji" film in 1995. To make things even better, the "Jumanji – The Adventure" theme park is being built right now. This means that movie fans will soon be able to play the game in real life.

What Is The Origin Of The Word Jumanji?

If you're unfamiliar with the film, "Jumanji," starring Robin Williams, Bonnie Hunt, Kirsten Dunst, and Bradley Pierce, was based on the board game of the same name. However, this was not your typical board game. A single roll of the dice may transport you to a parallel jungle universe or—and we're not sure which is worse—bring the game's serpents, lions, and other hazards into our own.

While it makes sense that a film featuring youngsters playing a board game would be marketed to children, Roger Ebert remarked in his review that the picture was "about as appropriate for smaller children as, say, 'Jaws.'"

Despite this, the film was a box office smash and spawned two similarly successful sequels—"Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" in 2017 and "Jumanji: The Next Level" in 2019, both directed by Dwayne Johnson and starring Jack Black, Kevin Hart, and Karen Gillian.

Thanks to a partnership between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Merlin Entertainments, you may now explore the world of Jumanji through a series of attractions and experiences coming to theme parks and water parks worldwide if you're courageous enough to play the game.

Is There A Jumanji Park?

A "Jumanji" theme park ride is currently being developed.

The first ride, dubbed Jumanji: The Adventure, will debut in Italy at Merlin's Gardaland resort. There will also be hotel rooms designed after "Jumanji." According to Variety, a second theme park attraction is in the works for 2023.

The attraction will be called "Jumanji- The Adventure" and will feature a dark ride that will transport customers of all ages into the imaginary world of Jumanji. Riders will be whisked away on an amazing trip through the hazardous jungle, encountering several surprises, perils, and hazards. The attraction's debut will also coincide with the debut of entirely themed hotel rooms inspired by Jumanji.

In a nod to the plot of the current film, "Jumanji – The Adventure" would carry riders atop cars that race down a track through the unknown forest on a "mission" to locate and return a precious jewel to the temple in order to rescue Jumanji's world. Of course, along the journey, they'll encounter "hazards, obstacles, and extraordinary effects." Highlights are said to feature a large animatronic hippo emerging from a swamp, scary spiders entering the vehicle, and a cave-dwelling, "roaring" stone giant.

According to the Daily Mail, Aldo Maria Vegevani, Gardaland's CEO, stated last October about the upcoming attraction, "'It will be a significant investment of over €20 million for the realization of the world's first Jumanji-themed attraction, which will be unique in the world for its hi-tech features and unique, impressive theming."

"We are thrilled to be advancing our connection with Sony Pictures Entertainment through this strategic alliance." Mark Fisher, Chief Development Officer at Merlin Entertainment, said in a statement. "Our Merlin team has already begun designing incredible creative concepts that will bring the blockbuster-famous Jumanji film to life throughout our theme parks and waterparks. We can't wait to provide guests and film buffs with exhilarating rides and experiences! The game is unquestionably underway!" He added.

Merlin is the best firm for bringing Jumanji's universe to life. Their dedication to excellent storytelling, superior workmanship, and exceptional guest experiences ensures that fans of Jumanji will be completely immersed in the worlds of their films and have an amazing encounter. Jeffrey Godsick was thrilled to deepen their partnership with the fantastic team at Merlin. Jeffrey Godsick was the Sony Pictures Entertainment's Executive Vice President of Global Partnerships and Brand Management and Head of Location-based Entertainment.

Conclusion

Mark Fisher, stated that the Merlin team is already hard at work devising fantastic creative concepts that will bring the blockbuster-famous "Jumanji" film to life across our theme parks and waterparks.

Merlin manages around 135 theme parks and water parks worldwide, as well as Madame Tussauds wax museums, Heide Park in Germany, and Alton Towers, Thorpe Park, and Chessington World of Adventures theme parks in the United Kingdom.

Any of these locales could be potential locations for future Jumanji-themed attractions, though we won't mind if they open slowly. We may require that time to gather the guts to attend.
