In 2019, to celebrate the 80th anniversary of Batman, the attraction set the record for the “largest gathering of people wearing capes,” with 2,266 people wearing capes.

Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi is made up of six immersive lands — Warner Bros Plaza, Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction, Dynamite Gulch and Bedrock. The Wizarding World of Harry Potter is set to open soon at the Yas Island attraction, giving fans the chance to step inside all the beloved locations from the record-breaking book series and the blockbuster films they inspired.

Developed by Warner Bros Discovery's Global Themed Entertainment and Yas Island developer Miral, more details of the Harry Potter-themed land and when development will begin are yet to be revealed.
