The Warner Bros-branded theme park under development in Abu Dhabi will open this July. 

Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, estimated to be worth $1bn (AED3.67bn), will open at Yas Island on 25 July, 2018, a listing on its website confirms.

Six sections – dummed 'immersive worlds' – have been created across the indoor theme park, each set aside for themes including Warner Bros Plaza (pictured), Gotham City, Metropolis, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, and Dynamite Gulch.

The park comprises 29 rides, in addition to dining options and retail units. 

Construction commencement of the project was announced in July, 2015. 

Warner Bros Entertainment had signed a deal in 2007 with Abu Dhabi developer Aldar Properties and the Abu Dhabi Media Company to bring Warner Bros-themed project to the Middle East, Arabian Business reported at the time.
