Get set for the ride of your life – exciting new details have been revealed about the hotly-anticipated launch of Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.
The world’s first-ever Warner Bros. branded indoor theme park will boast six superb themed lands, Metropolis, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, Gotham City and Warner Bros. Plaza – and now adventure-seekers have been given the inside track on what to expect at Metropolis and Cartoon Junction.
The mega Yas Island tourist attraction – which will feature 29 state-of-the-art rides, interactive family-friendly attractions and unique live entertainment – is set to swing open its doors later this year.
It will be an incredible destination where superheroes and cartoon favourites, from Superman and Wonder Woman to Bugs bunny and Scooby-Doo are brought to life.
To help build up the anticipation, details about the thrilling array of activities at two of the entertainment zones have been released.
Beyond the iconic arches of Warner Bros. Plaza, guests will be transported to the bustling city of Metropolis, protected from villainous enemies by DC super heroes such as Superman and other members of the Justice League, including Aquaman, Green Lantern, Cyborg and The Flash.
The world famous Daily Planet, Metropolis’s trusty newspaper, will play host to Superman 360: Battle for Metropolis, a high-octane attraction that features the Man of Steel in a pulsating battle of good versus evil which will decide the fate of Metropolis.
Theme park fans entering the legendary Hall of Justice, the massive headquarters of the Justice League, can jump on board Justice League: Warworld Attacks – a heart-pumping dark ride with immersive media and special effects.
Other exciting attractions in Metropolis include Green Lantern: Galactic Odyssey, an awe-inspiring 4D flying theatre experience and Teen Titans Training Academy, a multi-level play area featuring a zipline and a host of other physical activities.
When it comes to dining guests, can choose from Ace O’ Clubs, Bibbo Bibbowski’s quick service restaurant; or Park Ridge Market, a grab-and-go café. And can have a lasting memento of their experience by visiting a number of souvenir shops.
And that’s not all folks! New information has been announced about Cartoon Junction, where childhood memories are celebrated.
Beloved characters from Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera, including Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo, Daffy Duck, Tweety and the Tasmanian Devil, will wow fans in nine family-friendly rides and attractions.
Stars of the small screen will take centre stage at attractions such as the Tom and Cheese Swiss Cheese Spin, Scooby-Doo The Museum of Mysteries and ACME Factory, which is home to a trio of kid-friendly rides of its own, including Daffy’s Jet-Propelled Pogo Stick, featuring a vertical ‘jump’ tower; Tweety Wild Wockets, a fun ride that spins its passengers “awound and awound” as they try to avoid that “bad ol’ puddy tat,” Sylvester; and Ricochet Racin’ with Taz, a car ride that whips racers around a track.
Mark Gsellman, park general manager, said: “With the park well on track to open its doors to the public within mere months, we are incredibly excited to share our story with audiences around the world, and will be announcing the exact opening date very soon.
“The six different and immersive lands will seamlessly transport guests of all ages to the lands of their favourite DC Super Heroes and beloved Warner Bros. Animation characters. As guests enter Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, they’ll discover the Warner Bros. Plaza — a land inspired by the Golden Age of Hollywood— to celebrate all things Warner Bros.! From there, park-goers can step through one of the many portals that lead to our other lands including Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock and Dynamite Gulch— each of which offers a unique set of experiences including authentically themed restaurants and shopping outlets.”
