Warner Bros. details attractions for Abu Dhabi park

The park will feature attractions for Superman’s Metropolis and Batman’s Gotham City.

Warner Bros. and Abu Dhabi’s Miral have revealed new details for its upcoming theme park, which will boast attractions for Superman’s Metropolis and Batman’s Gotham City.

Set to open next year, the park will also include Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, and Dynamite Gulch, themed after the Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera brands, as well as the Warner Bros. Plaza.

In addition, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will feature rides, live entertainment and family attractions.

“Miral is proud to confirm that one year after announcing its plans to bring Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi to Yas island, we’re making great progress with our partners where we’re 60 per cent complete and on track to launch in 2018,” said Mohamed Abdullah Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral.

“We’re excited to reveal new details about the six unique immersive worlds at Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, which is a key part of our ambition to make Yas Island a top-ten global destination for family fun.”

Since the announcement of the park, Warner Bros. has hired 5,500 workers to build the attraction, which will be spread out across 1.65 million sq ft.

Pam Lifford, president of Warner Bros. consumer products, added: “Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will be a state-of-the-art themed experience that authentically brings some of the Studio’s most iconic characters and stories to life under one roof for the first time in the Middle East.

“We have been closely collaborating with our partners at Miral to faithfully construct immersive worlds that resonate with precise details, and are thrilled to share these unique experiences with fans next year.”
