Guests were also treated to a series of festive celebrations incorporating the park’s beloved characters.

Following the opening ceremony His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Rashid and His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed toured the park, which officially opens to the public on the 25th of July. The opening of the Warner Bros.

From the meticulously curated musical arrangements to the faithfully created landscapes, each land is uniquely designed to truly immerse guests in the places they’ve seen in movies, comic books and on TV.

Their Highnesses also learned of the different stages of development which the park underwent as well as its adherence to the internationally recognized best practices and rigorous health and safety standards to ensure the wellbeing of its guests.
