In a recent announcement, Miral and Warner Bros have officially launched the Warner Bros themed destination in Abu Dhabi.
The theme park will be part of Yas Island and will also include the only Warner Bros branded hotel. The first phase of the project, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, is set to open in 2018. Construction is underway and rides are in production.
The theme park will showcase stories and characters from the Studio’s portfolio of DC Comics Super Heroes universe including Batman, Superman and Wonder Women as well as Warner Bros Cartoons such as Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry.
The new attraction will help Yas Island take its annual visitor tally from 25 million in 2015, to 30 m in 2018.
