Take a 360-degree virtual tour of Motiongate Dubai

May 29, 2016, 9:08 PM · If you're looking for some fun theme park-related eye candy online, check this out. It's a 360-degree "ride through" the new Motiongate Dubai, which opens this fall.

Okay, since the studio-themed park is still months from completion, this is a computer animated tour and not an actual video of what the parks looks like today. But we love the device of having a roller coaster take us through the park for this virtual tour. Of course, we should note that there's not really going to be a coaster that goes through all the lands like this — though that sounds like a great idea for some park to develop one day!

In the clip, we see Motiongate Dubai's five lands: the Studio Central entry plaza, Sony Pictures Studios, Smurfs Village, the all-indoors DreamWorks land, and, finally, Lionsgate, which will be home to a couple of Hunger Games attractions. Note that you'll need to watch in a browser, such as Google Chrome, that supports 360-degree video in order to get the full effect.

That movie is my all time favorite and I really wish Universal Orland would be able to bring it back to the old Twister building but do it true justice like it looks like in the 360 tour! Sadly I'll probably never go to Dubai but if that attraction ends up being something really cool, I might have to make a one time only trip!

They will look at what worked didn't work in Dubai and what needs to be improved before deciding on what kind of DreamWorks animation based attractions to have at their parks.
