Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi and Ferrari World bu Dhabi will reopen to guests starting next week, the parks announced today. The parks will welcome back annual passholders on July 28, followed by a return to the public the next day.
Both theme parks are located on Abu Dhabi's Yas Island, which has been in the news recently as the home of the UFC's "Fight Island." With the NBA and Major League Soccer resuming their seasons at Walt Disney World, theme park resorts seem to have established themselves the place to be for entertainment to go on, in controlled environments, during this pandemic.
To that end, the Yas Island parks will limit attendance to 30 percent of capacity, with date-specific tickets or advance reservations required. The parks will use thermal screening cameras as well as physical distancing markers throughout to help promote guest safety. Guests also are encouraged to use the parks' official apps during their visit. Some shows and character meet and greets will be suspended, but characters will continue to appear in the parks in a safe, physically distanced manner. Here is the park's new safety video:
The world's largest indoor theme park, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is a former winner of our Theme Park Insider Award as the world's best theme park. Its neighbor, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, is home to Formula Rossa - the world's fastest roller coaster.
