Warner Bros World theme park will open at Yas Island in 2018.
The stunning announcement was made today a glittering press conference in the capital, in which some early details of the project were officially unveiled. A video played to the press was the biggest giveaway, with films such as Batman vs Superman, Inception and other DC Comics featuring heavily, as well as Friends and Looney Tunes.
Situated alongside Yas Waterworld and close to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Mall, the new park is set to be a huge attraction not just for the capital, but the whole of the UAE.
The park is not the first venture by the studio, who already have their name attached to Movie World in Queensland Australia, a 25-year-old park featuring themed rides based on Batman, Austin Powers, Marilyn Monroe, Great Gatsby, Scooby-Doo and various Looney Tunes characters. It is also regularly held parties for the brand and been used for location filming for blockbuster films.
Warner Bros also previously had venues in Germany (at the now named Movie Park Germany) and Spain (now Parque Warner Madrid), while their stamp is also on the Wizarding World Of Harry Potter in Orlando, and the Harry Potter Studios in London.
