Batman: Knight Flight was not running when the new Warner Bros. World theme park premiered in Abu Dhabi in July, but the ride now has opened officially to guests this week.One of the most anticipated new rides of 2018 finally has opened.
Using a ride system that U.S. theme park fans might find similar to Universal's acclaimed Harry Potter and the Forbidden Journey, Batman: Knight Flight is one of the most ambitious attractions in the world, using a mix of practical and media effects to create a journey over the rooftops of Gotham. But forget about me trying to explain it. Let's ask park creative design leader Dave Cobb — who talked with us on our podcast earlier this fall about the making of the park — set up the ride:
"Batman: Knight Flight is a cutting-edge experience where guests visit the offices of Wayne Tech as unassuming job fair candidates, only to be identified and recruited by Batman himself to help solve a mystery unfolding on the streets and in the skies above Gotham City. Remotely tethered to the Batmobile, guests take an airborne journey in a high-tech drone wing and find themselves caught in a heroic and thrilling sky-high battle between the Dark Knight, The Joker and his Rogues’ Gallery of cohorts like Harley Quinn, Poison Ivy and Mr. Freeze," Cobb said.
"Combining massive immersive sets, cinematic media and live special effects, this world-class attraction is unlike anything else in the region, and the entire Thinkwell team is immensely proud and excited for our partners at Miral, Farah Leisure and Warner Bros. to finally share it with park guests."
