Ubisoft Building a Real-Life Theme Park With Rabbids, Assassin’s Creed, & More

"And over here is the Ubisoft roller coaster of game quality!" (<3 Ubisoft.)

Rayman Raving Rabbids was one of the best things to come from the Nintendo Wii—not really because the game was incredibly great, but because the Rabbids are so darn entertaining. Well, Ubisoft is putting that franchise and others to good use in the real world as they prepare to open their very own theme park. (Hopefully rides won’t all be waggle-based.)

The theme park will be constructed by Ubisoft Motion Pictures—which has previously produced a Rabbids-based ride at Futuroscope in France—in conjunction with RSG, co-owner of Movie Animation Park Studios, in … Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. So, based on where most of our readership is located, it may well be more practical just to keep playing the video games. Hey, maybe some day you can go to the theme park via Oculus Rift and never have to leave your couch at all!

The planned 10,000-square-foot park, however, should be just fine no matter who can get to it, as ComingSoon.net notes that Malaysia is the second most visited country in Asia. The finished park will feature Rabbids, Assassin’s Creed, and Just Dance-themed rides, shows, and other attractions, in addition to those leveraging Ubisoft’s other properties.

Ubisoft Motion Pictures senior vice president Jean de Rivières said, “Together we are creating a place where every guest is a player, every ride is a playground, every visit is a game. In RSG, we’ve found a partner with a successful track record in working with international brands, a shared ambition to design the family destination of the future, and a wealth of expertise in theme park development.”

As exciting as this news is on its own, I can’t help but be distracted by thoughts of other video game companies starting up their own theme parks. Take a cue, everyone. Nintendo Land is a fun Wii U tech demo, but wouldn’t it be much more fun in the real world? I’m glad someone decided to lead the way, and the possibilities have me excited like:
