Abu Dhabi will open a $US1 billion ($A1.28 billion) indoor Warner Bros amusement park this July.
Officials made the announcement at the Warner Bros World park. It was built by the Abu Dhabi government-owned Miral Asset Management and encompasses 153,290 square metres on Yas Island in the Emirati capital.
Officials say the draw of the Warner Bros brand, encompassing cartoons and comic books, will help them overcome the challenges faced by other theme parks in the Emirates. One new Dubai theme park lost $US300 million last year.
Being inside also helps. Summertime temperatures easily reach above 40 degrees Celsius with high humidity.
The park, opening July 25, will sell tickets from 290 dirhams ($A100) for adults and 230 dirhams ($A80) for children.
