Construction is underway and rides are in production.
Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi will bring together stories and characters from the studio’s unparalleled portfolio of DC Comics super heroes, including Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, as well as Warner Bros. cartoons such as Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo and Tom and Jerry.
