Warner Bros. World has revealed its next set of attractions, as the indoor theme park prepares for its grand opening this summer in Abu Dhabi.
The park previously announced the ride line-up for its Metropolis and Cartoon Junction lands, and this week revealed what's coming into its Batman-themed Gotham City land.
The highlight of the land appears to be Batman: Knight Flight, where visitors will "climb aboard a one-of-a-kind robotically controlled flying Batwing vehicle" to help Batman fight crime in the city.
Theme parks rarely talk about the ride systems for their new attractions (unless they are roller coasters), but the concept art for Knight Flight suggests something akin to a Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey-like experience, with four-person "flying bench"-style ride vehicles. The tech here looks more like a flying theater than a robot arm, as on Forbidden Journey, but Warner Bros. World promises "drops, climbs, spins, and rolls" on a "a high-tech flight simulator with immersive scenery and state-of-the-art special effects."
Other rides in Gotham City include The Riddler Revolution, which the park advertises as a "spinning rollercoaster," but the concept art suggests a Zamperla Disk'O. (Is a Disk'O a roller coaster or a flat ride spinner? Debate in the comments.)
You can see in the background of that concept art The Joker's Funhouse, a walk-through featuring a hall of mirrors, a shrinking corridor, a labyrinth, a hallucination hallway and moving carpets, according to the park's press release. Rounding out the attractions in Gotham City is Scarecrow Scare Raid, a "diabolical interactive" "flight experience" that features "dramatic aerobatics and whirlwind barrel rolls." (Take your guess in the comments as to what kind of ride that will be.)
Restaurants in the land will include the police-themed Gotham City's Finest and the villain-themed Hall of Doom.
