Leolandia in Italy to Bring ‘PJ Masks City’ Attraction to Families in 2020
LONDON: November 5, 2019 - Entertainment One (eOne) is excited to announce that it has secured a multi-year agreement with Leolandia, Italy’s leading theme park destination for families, that will see the launch of the world’s first PJ Masks City theme park attraction in 2020.
Construction on PJ Masks City is already underway and the inauguration is set to take place next spring. The attraction will be a fully themed area dedicated to eOne’s popular animated series featuring rides, shops, restaurants and many more areas aiming to create a fully immersive environment that brings the brand to life. Cutting-edge technology and next-generation special effects will make guests of all ages feel like they have stepped into the world of PJ Masks. Visitors to the attraction can experience the most iconic locations, interact with their heroes and re-enact their adventures complete with amazing vehicles and fun-filled experiences.
eOne’s Ami Dieckman, SVP International Licensing, Family & Brands said, “We are fully committed to expanding our live events portfolio with partnerships that enhance the content through tangible experiences. We’re therefore thrilled to be collaborating with Leolandia once again to launch this new attraction in 2020. PJ Masks City will cement the brand’s longevity in the region and we look forward to creating everlasting memories for fans of the show.”
Giuseppe Ira, the President at Leolandia said, “This important project represents the crowning achievement of a long-term partnership between Leolandia and eOne. The aim is to make the guests the real protagonists of a compelling story and offer a unique, immersive experience, designed to leave a mark. This announcement comes at the end of an outstanding summer season that was characterised by double-digit growth both in terms of turnover and number of visitors”.
PJ Masks is a leading preschool property in Italy where it airs daily on Disney Junior and RAI Yoyo. These new agreements builds on eOne’s long-standing partnership with Leolandia following a hugely successful programme of PJ Masks meet and greet appearances at the theme park since 2017 where Catboy, Owlette and Gekko have met in excess of 500k fans during live entertainment activities.
