Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi

Fri Mar 03, 2017 9:13 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.

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!

These rides don't have anything to do with the ones at Six Flags, other than the fact they are the same brand, this will be a different ride, I'm guessing something like Avengers at IMG.

Dubai seem to love a simulator/screen based ride. With the kind of budgets they have I’d love to see them invest in some great quality coasters... hello B&M? :P

Park will open on July 25th!

Here are some ride descriptions and pics:

Image
Entrance

Image
WARNER BROS. PLAZA – Expect Golden Age Hollywood Glamour, immersive environment and a wide offering of dining and shopping.

Image
In Bedrock:
The Flintstones Bedrock River Adventure – tucked away in the natural beauty of Bedrock’s Stonetrail Park, this star attraction invites passengers to embark on a scenic boat ride through stone-age wetlands, prehistoric neighborhoods and the city’s picturesque downtown area taking in the awesome sights and sounds of a day in the life of The Flintstones and The Rubbles. Guests should know that this isn’t just any day in Bedrock – it’s the town’s Centennial Parade! Rumor has it there’s Snorkasaurus-sized trouble in store when Dino is set loose to run amuck during the big celebration.

Image
In the Dynamite Gulch we have:
Fast & Furry-ous – This premier attraction invites passengers to climb onto Wile E. Coyote latest gadget – the ACME Road Rocket 9000 – for an exciting journey through the desert cactus and chasms joining Wile E. Coyote on yet another pursuit to catch the Road Runner. Beep! Beep!
Jetson’s Cosmic Orbiter – The Jetsons Cosmic allows guests to fly their own futuristic spaceship as they circle a space-age landing pad on a high-energy joyride.
Marvin The Martian Crater Crashers – Marvin the Martian: Crater Crashers – Marvin’s new recruits will smash the hovering space‐pods together to generate enough kinetic energy to power his broken rocket ship back into orbit —giving a whole new meaning to “kaboom!”

Image
Cartoon Junction:
Ani-Mayhem – a visually immersive and interactive dark ride that takes guests on a rollicking mission to deliver their own cartoon chaos. Aim your “barcode scanners” to deliver ACME packages and accumulate the most points to become ACME Employee of the Month.

Cartoon Junction Carousel – a colorful twist on a classic carousel that allows guests to ride along with their favorite Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera characters.

Tweety Wild Wockets – Tweety Wild Wockets lets kids spin “awound and awound” as they try to avoid Sylvester, that “bad ol’ puddy tat”.

Image
Gotham City:
Batman: Knight Flight – a highly exhilarating dark ride where guests help Batman patrol the skies of Gotham City in a one-of-a-kind robotically controlled flying Batwing vehicle capable of sudden maneuvers including drops, climbs, spins, and rolls. This ride combines a high-tech flight simulator with immersive scenery and state-of-the-art special effects for a thrillingly unforgettable experience.
The Riddler Revolution – a thrillingly roundabout ride where supervillain Edward Nigma lures guests into a run-down shipping warehouse for a thrilling nightmare. This rocking, spinning rollercoaster features dizzying movements as guests are caught at this fiendish contraption designed by The Riddler.

Green Lantern: Galactic Odyssey – an awe-inspiring “flying theatre” experience that transports guests across the cosmos to extraordinary worlds, enriched with special and visual effects.
Teen Titans Training Academy – a multi-level play area featuring a zipline and other physical activities that invites up-and-coming heroes to showcase their skills alongside the legendary Teen Titans. Requires climbing, crawling, and navigating uneven walkways.
