Put a smile on that face because a Batman theme park is coming
I was already beyond excited about the
Star Wars theme parks
opening in 2019 at Disney World/Land, and now another awesome universe is coming to life.
Warner Bros. is opening a massive indoor theme park where you can walk the dangerous streets of Gotham City. That’s right, a motherfucking BATMAN LAND.
Unfortunately, it’s opening in Abu Dhabi, so the vast majority of our readers will have to drop a pretty penny to get there, but imagine the possibilities. A creepy Joker funhouse is a given. Maybe there’ll be a high-flying Batman coaster that twists and turns between skyscrapers. Or a bizarre, Riddler-themed escape room where you have to solve campy puzzles and riddles to escape.
There aren’t many details about what the park will have in store — just a generic statement from Warner Bros. and a few pieces of concept art — but it looks like it’s shaping up to be an immersive, can’t-miss experience for die hard Bat fans.
“For the first time in the Middle East, Super Hero fans will be able to stroll the streets of Superman’s Metropolis, a modern-styled city of towering skyscrapers, and prowl the dark alleys of Batman’s Gotham City in this larger-than-life land where heroic exploits and action-packed family fun wait around every corner,” the statement reads.
The upcoming Warner Bros. World will also feature a cartoon junction full of all kinds of classic characters.
“The vibrant Cartoon Junction will bring together Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, and other famous characters under a stylized cartoon sky that will immerse guests in the wonderful world of animation. From the fun and frenetic to the out of this world, Dynamite Gulch will take you to the stars and deep into the canyon,” the statement adds.
“Lastly, guests can explore Bedrock, a prehistoric world powered by birds and dinosaurs, where the modern stone-age family can have a ‘yabba dabba doo’ time like The Flintstones.”
The park will cost $1 billion and take more than 5,500 workers to build. The six worlds with 29 rides span over 1.65 million square feet.
Warner Bros. World opens sometime in 2018.
