Lionsgate has partnered with Egan Escape Productions to create an immersive escape experience in Las Vegas, based on Lionsgate’s Blair Witch film franchise, opening in early summer 2021.
Escape Blair Witch will bring the horror film franchise to life at the Fright Dome, the same venue that houses the Official Saw Escape: Las Vegas, which launched back in 2018.
“Over the years we have partnered with Lionsgate many times to create world-class attractions,” said Jason Egan, owner of Egan Escape Productions.
“Way back in 2009 when we first worked with the Lionsgate team to bring the Saw films to life at our iconic Halloween attraction, Fright Dome, I could only have dreamed to be embarking on so many exciting projects with a world-class team.”
Escape Blair Witch heading to Las Vegas
“To be able to offer Escape Blair Witch and the Official SAW Escape: Las Vegas all under one roof is truly amazing,” Egan added.
Escape Blair Witch visitors will find themselves immersed in the village of Burkittsville, Maryland where they investigate mysterious events and disappearances. Visitors will work together to escape various rooms, including trekking through the Black Hills Forest.
“Fans will be able to immerse themselves like never before in the Black Hills Forest from the Blair Witch,” said Jenefer Brown, Lionsgate EVP and head of global LBE.
Lionsgate’s ongoing expansion into LBE
“We are thrilled to partner with Egan Escape Productions again, and by launching Escape Blair Witch alongside the Official Saw Escape, Las Vegas will become the can’t-miss destination for great Lionsgate horror experiences all year round.”
Back in October, Lionsgate revealed that the Lionsgate Zone at Motiongate Dubai is expanding with two new roller coasters inspired by John Wick and Now You See Me.
“This exciting expansion makes the Lionsgate Zone at Motiongate Dubai the epicenter of immersive blockbuster thrills in the region,” said Brown.
Lionsgate also previously revealed plans to develop exhibitions, experiences and live events based on The New York Times Magazine’s 1619 Project.
