Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi to house Gotham City

Fans of the Batman series will be thrilled to discover Gotham City in the Middle East. Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, which should be ready to receive the public this year during summertime, has confirmed Gotham City as one of its six adventure-filled lands. Theme park authorities have revealed many interesting details about the setting of the renowned comic that is being brought to life. When speaking of the upcoming inauguration, Mark Gsellman, park general manager, said:

“From heart-pounding flight simulators to authentic landmarks, this land is sure to leave a lasting impression on guests of all ages.”

A fictional American city appearing in comic books published by DC Comics, Gotham is best known as the home of Batman. In designing the award-winning series, creators Bruce Timm and Eric Radomski emulated Tim Burton films' "otherworldly timelessness"; incorporating black-and-white title cards, police airships and a "vintage" colour scheme with film noir flourishes.

Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi’s version is determined to keep true to this theme. Featuring the dark colours and husky appearance of the Batman series, the land will feature a plethora of interactive experiences, including rides and attractions, authentically themed restaurants and memorabilia shops — all inspired by the characters and stories from DC’s famed comic books and movies.

One of the most unique and entertaining features of the recreated city is running into notorious super-villains whilst walking down the streets. Visitors should be prepared to run into The Joker, The Riddler, Scarecrow, Catwoman and even Harley Quinn. In terms of incredible rides, the land caters to loving fans that will get the chance to climb aboard a one-of-a-kind robotically controlled flying Batwing vehicle in Batman: Knight Flight.

Departing from the mythical Batcave, the ride soars over moonlit rooftops, combining the sensations of a high-tech flight simulator with immersive scenery and top-notch special effects. During the “mission”, 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.

Other fun and memorable attractions are the Scarecrow Scare Raid, a flight experience that blends interactive adventures with dizzying manoeuvres; The Riddler Revolution, a spinning roller coaster; and The Joker’s Funhouse, a villainous twist on the classic carnival walkthrough experience. In addition, visitors can take part in a variety of intriguing games at Rogues Gallery Games.

After hours of indulging in the most exhilarating rides and activities, guests can head to various dining spots where delicious food is served. Maintaining the sombre atmosphere, the park is home to Gotham City’s Finest, the Police Department’s own favourite hangout spot, and the Hall Of Doom, hidden in an abandoned subway station.

Upon its inauguration, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi will feature a total of 29 rides, interactive family-friendly attractions and live entertainment across six fully immersive lands, including Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, and Warner Bros Plaza.
