Consider this your long-awaited letter from Hogwarts, Harry Potter fans! A Harry Potter Wizarding World is going to apparate in the UAE’s capital. Well, inside the Warner Bros. World theme park to be accurate.
This will be the Middle East’s first Harry Potter-themed land, so fans of the fantasy franchise will no longer have to hike out all the way to Universal Studios in Orlando, U.S. or the Warner Bros. studios in London to immerse themselves in the magic of the beloved fictional series. A quick drive to the Yas Island theme park will do the trick.
Before you decided to take a leaf out of Ron Weasley’s book and attempt to charm your car to fly to Abu Dhabi, we’d like to draw your attention to the fact that the Harry Potter Wizarding World Abu Dhabi’s opening dates haven’t been revealed yet.
What awaits inside Harry Potter Wizarding World?
All that has been confirmed so far is that this Middle East version of the Wizarding World will be a spectacular destination that will whisk Potterheads off to iconic locations in the imaginary world created by J.K. Rowling. That alone makes it a must-visit in our books.
Warner Bros. Discovery have teamed up with immersive experience creator Miral to set up this Harry Potter-themed world. So, you can be as sure as Hagrid is a half-giant that this is going to be an incredibly detailed and enchanting theme park with some spellbinding rides.
We’re hoping this means we will not only get to live out our dreams of being sorted in the Hogwarts Great Hall but also get to meander through Diagon Alley’s weird and wonderful shops and glug on some butterbeer in the wizarding village of Hogsmeade.
This Harry Potter-themed land, we’re also told, will be massive in size; Warner Bros. World is after all the world’s largest indoor theme park. The Wizarding World park will be joining six existing immersive lands based on beloved fictional worlds, such as Flinstone’s Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch from the Road Runner cartoons, Cartoon Junction, Batman’s Gotham City and Superman’s home of Metropolis.
Keep this page bookmarked as we’ll be shouting out the news of opening dates and other details louder than any howler received by Hogwarts students!
