Miral confirmed on Tuesday that Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, an indoor theme park spanning 1.65 million square feet, will be home to 29 rides, shows and interactive attractions.
The developer said in a statement that the park will also include retail outlets featuring a wide collection of merchandise inspired by Warner Bros franchises as well as a range of dining options.
Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi will bring together Super Heroes and Super-Villains from the DC Universe, including Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, as well as Warner Bros’ iconic animated properties such as Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry, creating a family-friendly destination for fans of all ages, the statement said.
“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.
Theming is currently underway throughout the park. Factory acceptance testing for all rides is nearly done, and delivery and installation of rides has already started.
Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, which comes as part of Yas Island’s commitment to attracting 48 million annual visits by 2022, is set to open in 2018, and will complement Miral’s Yas Island destination portfolio of themed parks, which includes Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, CLYMB, and SeaWorld Abu Dhabi which is scheduled to launch in 2022.For all the latest travel news from the UAE and Gulf countries, follow us on Twitter and Linkedin, like us on Facebook and subscribe to our YouTube page, which is updated daily.
