A Warner Bros World theme park is set to open in Abu Dhabi in 2018.

Situated on Yas Island, the development will also include the only Warner Bros branded hotel.

Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi feature heroes from the DC Comics Super Heroes universe including Batman, Superman and Wonder Women as well as from cartoons such as Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry.

Guests will be able to step inside Gotham City and Metropolis, and experience the cartoon worlds of Looney Tunes, Hanna-Barbera and more.

Warner Bros World will be situated alongside the world’s first Ferrari branded theme park, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and the Emirati themed mega water park, Yas Waterworld.

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will help Yas Island take its annual visitor tally from 25m in 2015, to 30m in 2018.

“It is incredibly exciting to announce that we are bringing the iconic Warner Bros. brand to Yas Island. said Miral chairman Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak.

"Miral’s investment in the Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi theme park is estimated at one billion dollars and is a milestone in the emirate’s journey to put Abu Dhabi on the global map and become one of the world’s leading tourist destinations."

Kevin Tsujihara, Chairman and CEO, Warner Bros. Entertainment, added: “Working with our partners at Miral, we’ll bring this expertise to Yas Island, one of the world’s leading entertainment destinations, to create a fully-interactive, innovative and unique experience that will allow fans of all ages to experience the most exciting aspects of Warner Bros. in a completely immersive environment.”
