Fans who’ve always wanted to visit Gotham City can soon do just that... but they’ll have to travel to Abu Dhabi first.

Batman’s fictional home is just one of several areas that’ll be part of Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, a brand new theme park that opens this summer in the United Arab Emirates. It’ll have worlds based on several popular Warner Bros. characters, and while we’ve seen glimpses of what Metropolis and other places in the park would look like, now, we have more info on Gotham, including some images.


The highlight is going to be a ride called “Batman: Knight Flight,” which takes guests on a trip into the Batcave and then on a twisty, turny, appropriately dark ride as they test Batman’s new “ultimate urban patrol vehicle.” Here’s a concept photo.

Other attractions include the Scarecrow Scare Raid, a flight ride, and the Riddler Revolution, a spinner roller coaster, both of which you get small glimpses of here.

Then of course there’s Gotham City’s Finest, the Hall of Doom, and the Mr. Freeze Ice Scream Truck, all of which serve food and more.

The park opens this summer and more info can be found at the official site.
