Liongate‘s two most popular film franchises, John Wick and Now You See Me, are receiving two new roller coasters at Dubai‘s Motiongate theme park. Both due next year, the John Wick: Open Contract will feature a version of the Continental where riders can either hunt Keanu Reeves‘ titular assassin or aid him in battle depending on where they line up.

“You’ll get two different experiences depending on which path through the queue you choose to get on the ride,” Jenefer Brown, executive vice president and head of global live, interactive and location-based entertainment at Lionsgate, explained. “I think what’s going to be amazing for fans is to have the opportunity to walk through the lobby of the Continental and experience different key moments in the settings that took place in the films,” Brown continued. “This attraction, in particular, is really about setting the story by putting people in this very immersive environment, and then you really get the action as you get on the coaster. It’s 10 stories high, so there’s definitely a level of intensity that’s befitting of the ‘John Wick franchise that guests will experience.”

The Now You See Me “High Roller” coaster will be influenced by the looks of a casino, similar to where the film’s Four Horseman perform their magic tricks before robbing the audience blind.

Both coasters are expected to arrive in 2021 with strict COVID-19 guidelines in place. Brown says both rides are expected to make its way to North America and other locations worldwide at “the right opportunity.”

In related news, Super Nintendo World is scheduled to open next year.
