Your eyes do not deceive you. Another theme park is coming to the UAE! As Dubai takes its theme park game from zero to 100 miles per hour, Abu Dhabi is following suit – Miral has just confirmed that Warner Bros. World will open in Abu Dhabi with 29 rides, shows and attractions.
The world-class theme park will have rides inspired by everyone’s favourite superheroes and super-villains from the DC Universe, including Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. You can also expect to see some of the iconic animations come to life, like Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry.
The factory acceptance testing is nearly done on all the rides, which means that the delivery and installation is underway!
“We are very excited to be announcing the number of rides, shows and attractions for Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi,” said Mohamed Abdullah Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral. “We’re very delighted to see the park coming together and on track for the 2018 launch.”
“Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi marks an important step in the development of Yas Island as a complete leisure and entertainment destination, and we can’t wait to share it with the world,” he added.
The new park is expected to bring around 1,000 new jobs to the capital and give a huge boost to tourism. Visitor numbers at Yas Island are currently at 25 million, but it’s expected that Warner Bros park could take them up to an impressive 30 million in the opening year.
The park will be owned by Warner Bros and Miral, the government-owned company who also own Yas Waterworld and operate Ferrari World.
