Abu Dhabi’s $1bn Warner Bros theme park to open in July

The attraction will be the UAE’s second indoor theme park



A new Warner Bros (WB) indoor theme park on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is set to open to the public in July, developer Miral has announced.

Spread across 1.65 million square feet, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi will feature a total of 29 rides, attractions and live entertainment options.

These will be split over six lands: Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, and Warner Bros Plaza.

Details of the Batman-themed Gotham City area have already been revealed, including four rides and attractions.

Cartoon Junction will feature classic WB characters like Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry.

Bedrock hosts The Flintstones, Dynamite Gulch includes Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner and Metropolis will include Superman themed attractions.

Tickets are now available priced from Dhs295 ($80) for adults and Dhs230 ($63) for children.

An annual pass costs Dhs695 ($189).

The park is due to open on July 25.

The opening comes amid uncertain times for the country’s two most recent theme park additions in Dubai.

Dubai Parks and Resorts and IMG Worlds of Adventure have both been linked with loan restructuring deals in recent months after lower than expected footfalls last year.
