LAS VEGAS, June 12, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- The Hunger Games: The Exhibition was awarded a GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS® title for the Largest Interactive Touchscreen Display on Thursday, June 6 at the attraction inside MGM Grand Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. The 60-foot wide interactive touchscreen display is utilized for an archery training experience designed to provide guests with the skills to "join the rebellion," a climactic highlight of the exhibition and the first of its kind on the Vegas Strip.
