Exclusive: First Look at ‘The Hunger Games: The Exhibition’ at Discovery Times Square!
Just yesterday morning Hunger Times had the privilege of getting a first look at The Hunger Games: The Exhibition thanks to Lionsgate. The exhibition is set to open to the public on July 1st and will be hitting various other cities throughout the years.
The exhibit took us almost 2 hours to tour and that was only because we may have rushed a bit. If you just want to tour the exhibit without a guide you can do so but I highly recommend taking the audio tour. The audio gives a little more insight into the making of the film and gives back story to every section. You start off by selecting your ally (guide) and as each section is seen, you unlock the next one.
The advantage of the guide is that it lets you discover a few easter eggs along the way and alerts you for things to look out for. Maybe you’ll get to see Buttercup, or a hologram of a special Game maker at the control room. Perhaps you’ll get bonus materials when you spot the Mockingjay symbol on your way.
The beauty of the exhibit is that it’s not only showcasing costumes and props from the films, but it also contains interactive sections. You can train along with the tributes in the Training Center. Learn self-defense, learn to tie knots like Finnick. Maybe you want to be interviewed by Caesar Flickerman or take a peek out of the train that transports you to the Capitol. Or perhaps you can be fully immersed in the tribute parade.
Every section contains descriptions and footage from the films so you get to hear your favorite tributes and re-live the action as you go. The great part is that when using the guide, any photos taken with it can be e-mailed directly to your in-box!
If you get to tour the exhibit make sure to take your time at each section and check your guide for help. Don’t forget to stock up on your souvenirs at the end! You’ll see there are quite a few exclusive items that you won’t find anywhere else!
