DreamWorks Movie Adventure Park (formerly known as DreamWorks Canada Studio Touring Park until 2002) is an amusement park at Vancouver, Canada. The film is based on the film and television-related works of DreamWorks Studios, which features rides, attractions, character greets, and entertainment.

The theme park shares several similarities to other movie-based theme park such as Universal Studios Hollywood and Disney's Hollywood Studios, as a theme park attached to a working studio, DreamWorks Canada Studio, which founded in 1984, eight years before a neighboring theme park opened, alongside with its opening-day attraction DreamWorks Canada Studio Touring Tram, and defunct in 2001, which leave some of its lots abandoned. DreamWorks Canada Studio Touring Tram (later called DreamWorks Movie Tour Tram) remained operating as an attraction until it forever closed down in 2013.

The park was a joint venture between DreamWorks and Landmark Entertainment. Today, the park is owned and operated by Universal Parks and Resorts.
