The Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi theme park will be built on Yas Island, already home to the world’s first Ferrari-branded theme park and Yas Waterworld.

Rides and attractions will be based on DC Comics Super Heroes such as Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, as well as Warner Bros. cartoon characters such as Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry.

Developed in partnership with Miral Asset Management, the park is set to open in 2018. Construction is already underway and rides in production.

It’s hoped that the new attractions will help boost visitor numbers from 25 million in 2015 to 30 million in 2018.
