Published on : Tuesday, February 6, 2018

indexWarner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, the 1.65 million-square-foot indoor theme park which is set to make its first appearance this summer, has offered a look at two of its six themed lands, Metropolis and Cartoon Junction.

Located on Yas Island, the theme park will offer a total of 29 rides, interactive family-friendly attractions and live entertainment across six lands including Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch and Warner Bros. Plaza.

Metropolis will be a Manhattan-like skyscraper city protected from villains by DC superheroes like Superman and other members of the Justice League including Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Cyborg and The Flash, in addition to the Teen Titans.

The Daily Planet will have Superman 360, an attraction that features the Man of Steel in a battle of good versus evil. Justice League: Warworld Attacks is a dark ride with immersive media and excellent special effects. Other attractions featured within Metropolis include Green Lantern: Galactic Odyssey, a 4D “flying theatre” experience, and the Teen Titans Training Academy, a multi-level play area featuring a zipline. Restaurants will include Ace O’ Clubs and Bibbo Bibbowski’s quick service restaurant.

To quote Mark Gsellman, the park’s general manager, “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.”

Cartoon Junction will feature characters and animated stories from Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera like Tom and Jerry, Scooby-Doo, Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, Tweety, Sylvester, Tasmanian Devil (Taz), Pepé Le Pew, and Elmer Fudd. Rides include Tom and Jerry Swiss Cheese Spin, Scooby-Doo The Museum of Mysteries, the Ani-Mayhem, Meet Bugs! (and Daffy), and Cartoon Junction Carousel. Cartoon Junction will also have the ACME Company Store, C.J. Mercantile, Hare Salon, which celebrates Bugs Bunny’s disguises and Fudd Hardware.

Yas Island is also home to the Ferrari World, the first Ferrari-branded theme park in the world boasting the world’s fastest roller coaster. A massive marine life theme park SeaWorld Abu Dhabi is also in the pipeline, which will be the first SeaWorld outside the U.S., to open in the island in 2022.

Such indoor theme parks are part of Abu Dhabi’s efforts to be at par with Dubai in terms of tourist attractions and entertainment. Both cities of the UAE are enjoying strong tourism growth, though Dubai still leads the way.
