Where the Experience Starts
The Hunger Games exhibition at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand takes visitors into the post-apocalyptic world of Panem. The experience is about celebrating the journey of Jennifer Lawrence’s character (Katniss Everdeen) as she transforms from her humble beginnings to the symbol of a political movement. Everything starts at the lobby that features a hand-painted, stylized portrait of Katniss. Before you go to the actual experience, you will be asked to pick one of four holographic cards. Each of these cards features a quote from a character in the films.
A tour of the exhibition will bring you to the Hall of Justice where The Reaping happened. In this stage of the game, a girl and a boy from each of the 12 Districts of Panem take part in the game. In the first film, Katniss takes her younger sister’s place. In this room, you will find a display of costumes used by Katniss, Effie Trinket, and the Peacekeeper, along with the actual props such as the microphone, name cards and Reaping bowls used in the film.
The Tribute Train
After your visit to The Reaping, you will be escorted onto the Tribute Train that would take Katniss and Peeta Mellark (Josh Hutcherson), together with their mentor Haymitch Abernathy to the Capitol to join the games. Almost everything you can find in this area is authentic. Displays here include the Tribute Train costumers for Katniss, Haymitch, and Peeta. Also, you can find some of their food and dishware items.
When you reach this part of the exhibition, you will take part in a game show-style interactive element. You will be encouraged to test your knowledge of the films.
The Office of President Snow
The character of President Snow was played by Donald Sutherland. President Snow is the Panem’s tyrannical leader. This room is mostly recreation based on actual props and sets from the films. But, the chandelier installed on the ceiling is authentic.
