Motiongate Dubai in the UAE is launching two new rides this month (January 2022).

The openings include the world's first rollercoaster using the IP of the Keanu Reeves-starred action-thriller franchise, John Wick, and another called ​​Now You See Me: High Roller.

Both rides will be located at the movie-themed park's Lionsgate Zone.

John Wick: Open Contract is a 4D Free Spin Coaster from ride specialist S&S. The 310-metre ride has a high point of 36m and reaches speeds of 70kmh.

The Now You See Me: High Roller is a 519m spinning coaster from Maurer Rides – created in partnership with design studios FORREC and DEC – it will have a top speed of 70km/h, a ride time of 103 seconds and six cars.

"Now You See Me: High Roller will be the fastest spinning coaster using single cars," Maurer Rides said.

"In addition, the coaster will have an absolutely special element - the Non-Inverting Loop, patented by Maurer."
