Miral, Abu Dhabi’s creator of destinations, and Warner Bros. officially announced that a Warner Bros. themed destination is set to open in Abu Dhabi.
A 1 billion dollar Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi theme park project will be situated on Yas Island and will include the only Warner Bros. branded hotel alongside the immersive theme park. The first phase of the project, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, is set to open in 2018. Construction is underway and rides are in production.
Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will bring together stories and characters from the Studio's unparalleled portfolio of DC Comics Super Heroes universe including Batman, Superman and Wonder Women as well as Warner Bros. Cartoons such as Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry. Guests of all ages will be able to step inside Gotham City and Metropolis, and experience the cartoon worlds of Looney Tunes, Hanna-Barbera and more, all under one roof.
Located alongside the world’s first Ferrari branded theme park, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and the iconic Emirati themed mega water park, Yas Waterworld, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will help Yas Island take its annual visitor tally from 25 million in 2015, to 30 million in 2018, reinforcing Yas Island’s leading position as home to ultimate leisure and entertainment experiences.
The Warner Bros. themed destination will be a major step in maintaining Yas Island’s momentum and is expected to create more than 1000 jobs for the Emirate.
