It’s official: the hotly anticipated Warner Bros. theme park in Abu Dhabi will open its doors July 25.

Some of the world’s most beloved superheroes, cartoon characters and comic book villains will be brought to life at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi this summer, as part of a greater plan to make Emirates a global tourist destination for families.

The sprawling 1.65 million square-foot indoor theme park features 29 rides and attractions across six immersive lands that include Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch and Warner Bros. Plaza.

Highlights include Batman: Knight Flight, which launches riders out of the Batcave in a Batwing vehicle, over the rooftops of Gotham City. The ride combines a high-tech flight simulator with immersive scenery and special effects for an experience that drops, climbs, spins and rolls.

The Scarecrow Scare Raid is likewise created for adrenaline junkies, with aerobatics and whirlwind barrel rolls to simulate the Scarecrow’s twisted psychological experiments.
