Entertainment News: Hasbro Has Opened "Hasbro City"


Thanks to fellow fan Peter Chavez IV I was alerted to the existence of an entertainment and shopping experience known as Hasbro City via the Funworld magazine by the IAAPA web site!  This facility is located in Mexico's Paseo Interlomas shopping mall.  It features a "shoppertainment" experience.  The article on the IAAPA site describes the venue this way:

The venue actually opened last year on June 23, 2023.  This venue features rides and attractions based on several Hasbro IPs including Power Rangers, Mr. Potato Head, Battleship, Monopoly, G.I. Joe, PJ Masks, NERF and more!  Four of the rides are Transformers based.  The four rides are listed below along with their descriptions translated from the Hasbro City web site via Google Translate:
