If you’ve ever had friends or family over for a game night, you’ve probably played one of the most popular board games of all time, Monopoly – a strategic board game where players buy, sell, scheme and wheel and deal their way to real estate fortune.
Soon, Monopoly lovers will be able to step into that world for a day at Monopoly Dreams in Melbourne, Australia, which is set to open in late 2022! Here is a breakdown of what you can expect from the $20 million project.
Monopoly Theme Park Melbourne
Set to be twice the size of its original location in Hong Kong, pass go at the Monopoly Dreams Melbourne entrance to explore the Monopoly City and Monopoly Mansion –
the theme park’s two distinct zones.
Monopoly Dreams is designed to mirror the city of Melbourne’s layout and within the space are two areas with a total of fifteen attractions. Instead of just giving prizes for playing the games and activities, the park also rewards you with Monopoly money which can be used later to spend at the park’s on-site cafe or retail store.
Some of the attractions included in this 1650-square-metre Monopoly-themed indoor park are a 4D theatre ride, a Water Works projection game, a chance wheel where you can score physical prizes, an attraction filled with Monopoly money that you’ll have to grab as it flies around and so much more!
While you’re there, explore the luxurious red and gold lobby, while making sure not to get caught up in jail and take the lift up to Mr Monopoly’s ‘Monopoly Mansion’ where the magic mirror and golden helicopter (a Guinness World Record for the largest Monopoly token) are kept hidden.
The amazing space is perfect for families and will be located in Melbourne Central with tickets expected to cost around $30 to $40.
Monopoly Dreams will be open to the public for visits, birthday parties, school excursions and special events.
