It’s taken 18 years, but Titanic fans will finally be able to experience the thrill of the movie in real life…in 3 more years.
20th Century Fox has just announced that in 2018, they’ll be opening a themed amusement park and resort called 20th Century Fox World in Dubai. In addition to Titanic, the park will feature attractions and sections dedicated to beloved franchises like Ice Age, Alien, Rio, Planet of the Apes, Predator and The Simpsons. The massive project is expected to cost roughly $850 million, Variety reports.
According to the press release, the park will offer “a broad attraction mix, ranging from media-based dark rides to thrill rides that will tell new stories based on Fox film and television brands.” There will also be shops and dining options based off of the various shows and movies.
“We are working on creating an immersive experience that includes motion theater simulators and will allow you to experience what it was like to be on the Titanic in an exciting way,” President of Fox Consumer Products Jeffrey Godsick told Variety.
Beyond that, we have no idea what to expect — will there be Titanic-themed food in the Titanic section? What is Titanic-themed food? — as it looks like specific details are still under wraps.
