Warner Bros. opening theme park in Abu Dhabi

Bringing Gotham to life

Gotham and other comic universes will descend upon Abu Dhabi.

If you love all things DC Comics and Warner Bros., especially Batman,  you might want to take a trip to Abu Dhabi for the grand opening of their new Warner Bros. theme park. The world’s first Warner Bros. branded indoor theme park has some major attractions, the biggest being that of Gotham city.

When the park opens this summer, Batman fans will have the chance to walk the streets of Gotham City alongside notorious Super-Villains such as The Joker, The Riddler, Scarecrow, Catwoman and Harley Quinn. The immersive land will feature interactive experiences, including state-of-the-art rides and attractions, authentically themed restaurants and memorabilia shops — all inspired by the characters and stories from DC’s famed comic books and movies.

 In a release, Mark Gsellman, park general manager, was very excited when speaking about the project.

“Home to fan-favorite DC Super Heroes, we’re very excited for our guests to experience the immersive environment of Gotham City, where Batman will emerge from the shadows to help fight crime and stop the city’s Super-Villains. From heart-pounding flight simulators to authentic landmarks, this land is sure to leave a lasting impression on guests of all ages.”

In Gotham City, guests will be able to climb aboard a one-of-a-kind robotically controlled flying Batwing vehicle to help the Caped Crusader bring crime to its knees in Batman: Knight Flight — a highly exhilarating dark ride, providing drops, climbs, spins, and rolls. On this ride, guests will step through a secret panel at Wayne Tech headquarters where they will be recruited as test pilots for the newest prototype of the ultimate urban patrol vehicle. Launching out of the Batcave and soaring over moonlit rooftops, guests will forever remember the experience of thwarting criminals alongside Batman. This ride combines a high-tech flight simulator with immersive scenery and state-of-the-art special effects for a thrilling experience.

Also, there will be several other rides that will take you on a heart-pounding journey including the Scarecrow Scare Raid, and the Riddler Revolution. Overall there will be six fully immersive lands to explore including Metropolis, Cartoon Junction, Dynamite Gulch, Bedrock, and Warner Bros. Plaza.

If you are jonesing to see these new attractions, the park is set to open Summer of 2018.
