Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi

Fri Mar 03, 2017 10:13 am

Haven't managed to find a topic for this but stated to open in late 2018 is Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, an upcoming indoor theme park located on Yas Island.

Image

Construction commenced in 2015 and is moving steadily ever since
Image

The rides at the park include 2 rollercoasters, 1 flume ride, 6 movie based dark rides ( 3D /4D ) and 10 other family friendly attractions.
Image

Anyway, Miral, the Abu Dhabi Government-backed company bringing the indoor theme park to the capital, said delivery and installation of rides had started.

"Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi marks an important step in the development of Yas Island as a complete leisure and entertainment destination, and we can’t wait to share it with the world," said Mohammed Al Zaabi, chief executive of Miral. "We’re very delighted to see the park coming together and on track for the 2018 launch."

Along with this, they released a time lapse video of the parks construction so far.

All is apparently on track and the park is expected to open next year.

It looks nice, but hope it offers something IMG doesn't. I find that the indoor parks can lose their immersiveness as you are constantly looking at a roof.

Agreed, there's rumours that done of the main coasters will be a Sierra Sidewinder clone, one of which can already be found at IMG. Im hoping they might theme the roofs and room off the different areas, but I wouldn't get my hopes up.

[Image link removed at the request from the contractor behind the development]

Quick update, but someone on themeparx found a picture of some workers inside the park, whats interesting is that track for a Vekoma suspended coaster (rumoured to be a clone of Freedom Flyer) is in the background!

Hopefully this means that construction is moving swiftly and will be on track for a 2018 opening!
