Hong Kong's New Life-size Monopoly Game Will Make All Your Childhood Dreams Come True (Video)
If you’ve ever considered yourself to be a Monopoly mogul — snatching up expensive properties like Park Place and Boardwalk and plopping a hotel on each — you’ll be happy to hear the game just got a lot more realistic.
Monopoly Dreams, a Monopoly-inspired attraction in Hong Kong, will take guests inside Mr. Monopoly’s 20,000-square-foot mansion where iconic game elements are incorporated throughout. The railroads, waterworks, jail cell, and even the “chance” and “opportunity” cards play a role as guests help solve the case at hand: a mysterious man who is attempting to steal Mr. Monopoly’s diamond scepter. Augmented reality technology and 4D interactive projections will be used to make the experience realistic.
Monopoly Dreams is slated to open June 2019 and will be located at The Peak, Hong Kong’s iconic destination with views over the city. The location itself is symbolic as the first Chinese version of Monopoly was designed around the city of Hong Kong with The Peak being the most expensive property in some editions.
Visitors can enjoy Monopoly-themed snacks and pick up souvenirs before continuing their exploration of Hong Kong’s impressive The Peak Galleria.
