Pacific Rim may have first begun as Guillermo del Toro’s cinematic love letter to mecha anime, but it seems destined to be turned into some kind of franchise by Legendary. While the feature film sequel Pacific Rim Uprising didn’t succeed in this cause, perhaps the franchise’s future is in theme parks.
A Pacific Rim theme park ride is being developed as the star attraction at the upcoming Trans Studio Cibubur theme park near Indonesia’s capital city of Jakarta. Touted as the “next generation dark ride experience,” Pacific Rim: Shatterdome Strike will pit Jaegers against Kaiju in a ride designed and built by Legacy Entertainmen and Lay-Carnagey Entertainment.
