Fan of Monopoly? The City of London Corporation will soon host the world’s first ‘MONOPOLY LIFESIZED’ attraction.
Hasbro, Inc and Gamepath (a new division of international theatre producer Selladoor Worldwide) have released the initial details of the experience – which is due to open on August 14 2021.
The new, participatory gameplay attraction brings together the best of the iconic board game, escape rooms and team challenge.
The lease, for 26,152 sq.ft of the approximately 38,000 sq.ft building owned by the City Corporation, will see 213-215 Tottenham Court Road become the first in a series of central London venues dedicated to live gameplay.
It will house individually designed and unique main gameplay boards (Classic, The Vault, and City – and a Junior Board) as well as a retail outlet selling a wide range of Hasbro game merchandise and a destination MONOPOLY-themed bar and restaurant serving signature cocktails and a quintessential British small-plates menu.
Chair of the Property Investment Board at the City of London Corporation, Andrien Meyers, said: “As we look toward recovery from the coronavirus pandemic, creative attractions such as the new MONOPOLY LIFESIZED will help re-engage Londoners and visitors alike with the delights that the capital has to offer.
“We are thrilled that Gamepath and Hasbro have chosen space within the fantastic building at 213-215 Tottenham Court Road as the home for the exciting new venture, and we wish them all the best.”
Gamepath will ensure the venue is COVID-secure by adhering to all latest Government guidelines, including one-way systems for the retail and food and beverage areas, hand sanitisers throughout the building, an enhanced deep cleaning regime, and with temperature checks undertaken for patrons and staff on arrival.
The capacity for each gameboard is limited to 24 maximum, and players are encouraged to form teams within their household bubbles. The producers will keep guidelines under constant review.
