WB Details Abu Dhabi Theme Park

Theme park will showcase Superman, Batman, Looney Tunes and other Warner Bros. properties.

Warner Bros. and Miral have revealed additional details regarding Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, which is set to open on Yas Island in 2018.

The new theme park will feature six immersive worlds: Metropolis and Gotham City, inspired by the DC Super Hero universe; Cartoon Junction, Bedrock and Dynamite Gulch, themed after brands such as “Looney Tunes” and Hanna-Barbera; and Warner Bros. Plaza, which is reminiscent of old Hollywood. The theme park will also include a raft of rides, interactive attractions and live entertainment, as well as the only Warner Bros.-branded hotel.

“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 percent complete and on track to launch in 2018,” says Mohamed Abdullah Al Zaabi, chief executive officer, 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.”

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, which is being developed under license from Warner Bros. Consumer Products, will also be located alongside the first Ferrari-branded theme park, the Emirati-themed water park, Yas Waterworld, CLYMB and the upcoming SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, which is set to open in 2022.

“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,” said Pam Lifford, president, Warner Bros. Consumer Products. “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.”
