Opening its doors on 25 July, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi – the world’s largest Warner Bros.-branded indoor theme park- will join Yas Island’s list of world-class entertainment venues.
The attraction will measure about 1.65 million square feet and will bring together the world’s most iconic characters and stories for the first time in the region – adding global cartoon charisma to the already attractive city.
Warner Bros. Abu Dhabi will have six immersive lands including DC’s Metropolis and Gotham City, as well as Cartoon Junction, Bedrock and Dynamite Gulch; the excitement begins at Warner Bros. Plaza, an Art-Deco inspired land that celebrates the Golden Age of Hollywood and all things Warner Bros.
“Another milestone in the Emirate’s journey to further enrich its tourism offering”
“The launch of Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is yet another milestone in the Emirate’s journey to further enrich its tourism offering, and help establish it as one of the world’s leading tourist destinations. The park is another great addition to Yas Island’s immersive experiences and award-winning attractions,” said H.E. Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, chairman of Miral.
As guests step through to Metropolis, they will discover an urban landscape protected from evil by DC Super Heroes like Superman and other members of the Justice League including Wonder Woman, The Flash, Green Lantern, Cyborg and Aquaman.
On the dark streets of Gotham City, guests will have the chance to walk alongside notorious DC Super-Villains such as The Joker, Harley Quinn, and The Riddler. These criminals will disappear into the shadows when Batman arrives to bring them to justice.
Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will feature a total of 29 state-of-the-art rides, interactive attractions and live entertainment, as well as a variety of themed dining and shopping outlets. The park’s immersive environments, thrill rides and fan-favourite characters will create an unparalleled experience for everyone who visits the park.
In Cartoon Junction, childhood memories come to life under year-round sunny skies alongside beloved characters including Bugs Bunny, Tom and Jerry, and Scooby-Doo.
“A truly immersive and authentic environment”
“We have worked tirelessly with our partners at Miral to faithfully bring iconic franchises such as DC Entertainment, Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera to life in a truly immersive and authentic environment,” said Pam Lifford, president, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “Delivering experiences and products that continue our brands’ storytelling and excite and engage fans is our primary goal, and we look forward to sharing this world-renowned attraction with them this summer.”
Venturing into the animated storyland Dynamite Gulch, guests can experience Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner’s dizzying dash first-hand, and keep an eye out for Marvin The Martian and The Jetsons.
