Sometime last year, we heard that a Warner Brothers theme park was coming to the UAE. A few months ago, the official opening date was announced… and that day is today! Warner Brothers World Abu Dhabi is the world’s first Warner Brothers indoor theme park, brought to us by Miral.
Dubai Media Office reported that the inauguration was attended by the Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, and the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan. The theme park officially opened to the public on 25th July 2018.
