Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will soon be the location of the iconic DC Comics’ Gotham City which will provide an immersive experience into the world of Batman for the superhero’s fans. The city is going to be a part of a proposed indoor amusement park which will also have locations such as Bedrock from The Flintstones, replicas of renowned Looney Tunes locations, and Gotham’s neighboring city in the DC Comics universe, Metropolis which will highlight Superman and the Justice League.
Gotham City has already been seen in a number of theme parks as rides and small interactive zones built around the rides, such as Six Flags in Valencia, California which hosts two Batman roller coasters, Batman: The Ride and The Riddlers Revenge. The area is named as Gotham City Backlot, and it allows visitors a feel of what will be coming up at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. It is going to be a completely immersive experience based in Batman’s world which will truly take the fans to the world of the Dark Knight and other associated characters.
Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will allow you to enjoy latest rides, unique face-offs with the Batman’s gallery of rogues such as Harley Quinn, The Riddler and of course the clown prince of crime aka The Joker. The visitors will be able to record their experiences, buy souvenirs from genuine Gotham City locations and dine out at Gotham City restaurants. The general manager of the park, Mark Gsellman assures that it is going to be a “lasting impression” for everybody who visits the park.
“Home to fan-favorite DC Super Heroes, we’re very excited for our guests to experience the immersive environment of Gotham City, where Batman will emerge from the shadows to help fight crime and stop the city’s Super-Villains. From heart-pounding flight simulators to authentic landmarks, this land is sure to leave a lasting impression on guests of all ages.”
Warner Bros. stated that the visitors to Gotham would be able to assist in crime fighting on Batman: Knight Flight, which will go through the Wayne Manor and Gotham City and would be an exciting unique ride. They will visit everything from the Gotham City shipyards to Gotham City pier, and will enjoy attractions based on all the characters such as Riddler or the Joker. After the rides, you would be able to eat to your heart’s content at one of the three dining places featuring the heroes and the villains of Gotham City.
If you are interested in visiting Gotham City or any of the other locations such as Metropolis, you need to wait until summer to book your trip. Based on the famous Yas Island, the new park will have six completely different immersive locations themed after WB properties and 29 state-of-the-art attractions. The only problem for visitors might be that the trip’s cost might exceed one’s summer travel budget.
In the wake of several fascinating locations arriving at Disney theme parks, such as Ant-Man and the Wasp attraction at Hong Kong Disneyland and a speculated Black Panther attraction, the time is ripe for superhero fans to visit theme parks. DC fans won’t be discouraged by the price to enjoy the world’s first completely immersive Batman experience. As of now DC Comics fans are at a disadvantage in comparison to the Marvel fans as far as theme parks are concerned. Therefore, they have all the reason to get excited, courtesy Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. Gotham City will welcome visitors from this summer!
