THE United Arab Emirates has announced plans for a $1 billion Warner Bros. theme park in Abu Dhabi, which will bring to the Middle East the studio’s popular superheroes and cartoon characters ranging from Bugs Bunny and Scooby-doo to Batman and Superman.

The first phase is scheduled to open in 2018 and will include a Warner Bros. branded hotel on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island, which is currently home to a Formula 1 race track, Ferrari World amusement park and waterpark. The project’s developer is Abu Dhabi’s Miral Asset Management.

“As a first of its kind, the Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi theme park and branded hotel 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,” says His Excellency Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Chairman, Miral.

The project was joint announced by Warner Bros. and Miral. The UAE, already a major tourist destination, is looking to drive up its tourism revenue with other eye-popping projects. Dubai has plans for a $3 billion theme park with a Six Flags, a Bollywood-themed amusement area and Legoland.

“The Warner Bros. themed destination will be a major step in maintaining Yas Island’s momentum and is expected to create more than 1000 jobs for the Emirate,” says Mohamed Abdullah Al Zaabi, CEO of Miral.
