Mass Effect Gets Its Own Theme Park Ride

Illustration for article titled iMass Effect/i Gets Its Own Theme Park Ride

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.

DISCUSSION

Slightly off-topic: I remember around the time of Mass Effect 2’s release or maybe some months after, people were saying that it was going to be the next Star Wars due to it’s rising popularity. It seemed as if this was the intention with a movie planned but fast forward to 2015 I’m personally glad all that stuff didn’t happen. As with Star Wars the quality of the IP could have declined in a bid to cater to too many people.
