Following Ubisoft’s announcement of their new Malaysian theme park earlier this month, now, we’ve got Bioware talking about a Mass Effect-themed attraction in a US theme park. Smaller in scope, sure, but at least it’s close by.

The ride, which will debut at California’s Great America in 2016, is said to be a “dynamic 3D adventure set in the Mass Effect universe,” with “cutting-edge 3D technology and 4D effects.” It involves visiting one of the game’s planets and battling “larger-than-life foes,” with the help of a live performer.

Bioware’s partnering with Cedar Fair for the project. The company currently operates fifteen amusement parks throughout the US.
