Pack your bags and get ready for an adrenaline rush: the world's first Jumanji themed park will open in Italy on April 2, 2022.

Gardaland Resort in Ronchi, Italy will soon be home to the world’s first Jumanji-themed ride. On Jumanji — the Adventure, riders will board off-road vehicles and navigate a dangerous jungle landscape while attempting to break the game’s epic curse.

When the ride opens next month, Gardaland will also launch a series of themed Jumanji hotel bedrooms for guests who want to eat, sleep, and breathe the complete 360° experience.

The attraction is the result of a partnership between Sony Pictures Entertainment and Merlin Entertainments. Jumanji – the Adventure is just the first of many Jumanji-themed attractions in the works for the two powerhouse brands. In a press release published on March 17, spokespeople confirmed that there is a second activation already in development at a different park for a 2023 launch.

Official dates, locations, and details have not yet been released for other projects. However, Merlin, which has existing partnerships with brands like Lego, Marvel, and more, announced that they are planning a full roster of attractions, lands, rides, retail outlets, and themed hotel rooms in their parks and water parks across Europe and North America.

Merlin operates more than 135 themed attractions and experiences around the world, including Legoland theme parks and water parks, Madame Tussauds wax museums, Heide Park in Germany, and many more.
