Sony Pictures partners with Moscow’s Dream Island Theme Park to open Hotel Transylvania attraction

Dream Island Theme Park, Europe’s largest indoor theme park located in Moscow, has officially opened its much-anticipated Hotel Transylvania attraction, established in partnership with Sony Pictures Animation.

The new attraction will launch in anticipation of the upcoming film release, Hotel Transylvania: Transformania, the final chapter of the $1.3 billion movie franchise from Sony.

Dracula has opened up his lavish resort to the human world and will allow visitors to tour and meet its unusual guests.  Visitors will begin their  journey by walking across a bridge over a foggy moat to enter the hotel’s lobby. There, they will meet Dracula, who will guide them through more than 10 locations.

“The attraction will be a worthy addition to our park. The work on the Hotel Transylvania theme area took more than three years, as we wanted to build a unique space for Russia, combining the latest technical and creative solutions to create a comedic horror experience suitable for the whole family,” said Ivan Scholl, technical director of Dream Island Theme Park. “We partnered with Sony Pictures in order to achieve an authentic experience that will be the first attraction of this level in Russia, in one of the world’s leading theme parks.”

Jeffrey Godsick, EVP of global partnerships and brand management and head of location based entertainment at Sony Pictures Entertainment, said: “In line with our growing Location Based Entertainment strategy, Dream Island Theme Park has done a fantastic job bringing this beloved brand to life and giving audiences the unique opportunity to transport themselves into the thrilling world of Hotel Transylvania.”

In addition to the Hotel Transylvania ride, guests will also find a Tavern of Fear snack bar, a Vampire’s Bite burger cafe and Transylvania Treasures, a gift store filled with Hotel Transylvania themed souvenirs and memorabilia.

The new theme area is included in the price of the Dream Island Theme Park entrance ticket. Fast pass tickets are also available for the Hotel Transylvania attraction, specifically.
