Big news for board game fans this week: the world’s first Monopoly themed attraction is set to open in Hong Kong in the third quarter of this year. The new facility will be called Monopoly Dreams and will be located at The Peak, which also happens to be the most expensive property in the Hong Kong edition of the board game.

Monopoly has made a name for itself as one of the world’s most celebrated family board games, with an estimated one billion players worldwide from 114 countries, according to the Standard. Monopoly Dreams plans to build off the success of the 84-year-old board game by offering an array of activities that will utilize 4D, AR and holograms to immerse visitors in the world of Monopoly, according to Business Insider. In total, Monopoly Dreams is expected to span 20,000 square feet. 

According to the Monopoly Dreams website, key Monopoly experiences center around elements like the Bank, Train Station, Water Supply, Jail, Title Deed cards, Chance cards and Community Chess cards.

“We target to accommodate over 700,000 visitors… [and] further propel the tourism of Hong Kong,” said Gary Chan, the chief operations officer of the Monopoly Dreams project, according to the Standard. 

To build up hype, the project recently released a promotion video for Monopoly Dreams, which can be viewed on YouTube here.
