Disney did it first. And since the Mouse opened his house to the public, Christmas, Charles Dickens, Dolly Parton and even overexposed porcine superstar, Peppa Pig, have opened their own theme parks.  

Now it's the turn of bow wielding, government toppling, heroine, Katniss Everdeen. The CEO of Lionsgate - the company behind the blockbuster films - has announced they're in talks for a Hunger Games themed amusement park ride.

Knowing that dystopian blood sports aren't everyone's cup of vanilla chai, here are some alternatives.

Downton Abbey world

Experience the dizzying highs of living as aristocracy, and the crippling lows of being their staff in post-Edwardian England. Rides include The-Dame-Maggie-Smith-a-Tron, an 80mph thrill ride culminating in a disapproving look.

Gravity Towers

Buckle up! You're about to be strapped into a high-tech suit and literally fired into space. Once there, you'll drift alone with nothing but regrets to keep you company until your air runs out.

Breaking Badland

Enjoy a yearlong descent into criminality and deprivation before systematically alienating your entire family. Shortly after which, you die.

EastEnders Horror Maze

Experience true fear as you enter a bone-chilling live action maze. Crawl through the beer hatch of The Queen Vic and find yourself surrounded by undead terrors, including Pam St. Clement and Sid Owen.

The Hangover Experience

After a complimentary - and mandatory - bottle of spirits, you and your friends will embark on the adventure of a lifetime. The first time will be great, the second go will be fine, and the third will leave you deeply confused, disappointed and wanting your money back.
