LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — Lionsgate, the motion-picture studio behind the “John Wick” movies announced Thursday that a new experience based on the Keanu Reeves-lead franchise is coming to Las Vegas later this year.

According to a release, Lionsgate is teaming up with AREA15, Franchise director Chad Stahelski, and Egan Productions to bring to fans the “John Wick Experience,” a new attraction slated to open later in 2024.

“It’s always gratifying to see people embrace your story and characters, whether on the big screen or with a fully immersive experience like this one,” Stahelski said. “The teams at Lionsgate, AREA15 and Egan really dive into this world, and I’m excited that fans will experience it live in Vegas.”

The experience will be based on the John Wick films, a billion-dollar motion picture franchise. The release stated the “John Wick Experience” will be approximately 12,000 square feet and will be a “curated collection of best-in-class immersive experiences, interactive attractions, events, and entertainment.”

“One of the things I love about the John Wick franchise is the idea that there’s a whole world of alliances and vengeance hiding in plain sight – all converging within the worldwide locations of the Continental,” Jenefer Brown, Executive Vice President & Head of Global Products and Experiences at Lionsgate said. “This experience draws fans into that world like never before, and AREA15 is an ideal place for fans to live out the fantasy, action, and danger portrayed in the films.”

The “John Wick Experience” will blend immersive theater and “highly-themed cinematic environments” to make an interactive journey for fans. Additionally, fans will be able to visit a themed bar and retail shop.

Each group of guests will be tasked with missions, interacting with characters, mythology, and iconography from the “Wick” universe in “unique” ways.

“They may rub elbows with Continental staff, assassins, crime bosses, or other curious guests like themselves within the relative safety of the Continental,” the release stated. “Guests will be drawn into the culture, trusted with secrets, and invited to private areas of the Continental, promising an authentic and compelling action-packed experience.”

Egan Productions, the producer of the experience, has created several attractions and live events in Las Vegas, including previous Lionsgate collaborations on “The Official SAW Escape Room” and “Escape Blair Witch.”

“My entire team is thrilled to be working alongside Lionsgate to introduce yet another exciting attraction here in the entertainment capital of the world,” Jason Egan said. “Combining our talents with the creative genius of the films and a world-class venue like AREA15 will make the ‘John Wick Experience’ a can’t miss destination for fans.”

In addition to the four main films, the “John Wick” universe includes the tv show “The Continental: From the World of John Wick” and the upcoming spinoff film “Ballerina,” starring Ana de Armas.

AREA15 is an immersive entertainment district located just minutes from the Las Vegas Strip.
