Earlier this year, we wrote a post about the new Warner Bros. World theme park opening in Abu Dhabi in the summer of this year – but, what we didn’t tell you then was that DingleFingle and an absolutely fantastic team of entertainers were going to be there!
Dingle Fingle At Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi
As you can imagine, a theme park filled with all the cartoon characters of our childhoods is truly an unforgettable experience, so we were delighted at the prospect of taking part. However, actually being there was a whole new level of wonderful, and even though we were working, we all had so much fun. Our jobs are the best!
Check out the promo video here!
Seven years in the making, the Dh1 billion theme park on Yas Island boasts 29 rides over more than 1.6 million square feet. It is organised into six themed areas; Gotham City, Metropolis, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch and Warner Bros Plaza. Gotham and Metropolis are based on the fictional settings of DC Comics’ superheroes Batman and Superman, respectively. Warner Bros’ Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera cartoon libraries are featured in Cartoon Junction and Dynamite Gulch, along with Bedrock, which is themed around The Flintstones. And Warner Bros Plaza mimics the Hollywood of a bygone era.
The theme park officially opened to the public on Wednesday, July 25th, but two of the UAE’s leaders got a sneak peek on Monday, 23rd July.
Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Vice President and Ruler of Dubai, and Sheikh Mohammed bin Zayed, Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and Deputy Supreme Commander of the Armed Forces, were the ones to inaugurate Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.
“With my brother, Mohammed bin Zayed, during the inauguration of Warner Bros Abu Dhabi, one of the largest indoor entertainment cities in the world. A new milestone in our capital . A new destination for our families and an important step to consolidate the tourism sector in our national economy,” Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid tweeted alongside images from the opening.
They then took to the stage, flanked by classic Warner Bros. cartoon characters, and pressed a large red button to mark the official start of the new theme park’s operations.
And Dingle Fingle, along with an amazing group of entertainers, got in on that action!
Here’s what Adam Proto had to say about the event:
