It’s often a lonely life for Batman – the caped crusader who works tirelessly to keep Gotham City safe from crime – but it seems his efforts might be appreciated a bit more in Abu Dhabi than his home, at least if a new world record is anything to go by.

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi has just snagged a Guinness World Record for the “Largest Gathering of People Wearing Capes.” The world record-setting event took place to celebrate Batman’s 80th anniversary on the appropriately-named Batman Day.

Guests donned black capes featuring Batman’s famous logo for the event, showing their appreciation for Batman’s unceasing efforts in using all of his gadgets, abilities and resources in stopping criminals like the Joker and Mr Freeze from causing havoc around the world.

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is the world’s first Warner Bros. branded indoor theme park. Located on Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, it opened in 2018.
