A NEW Harry Potter themed land has been announced and it promises to bring Harry Potter to fans “like never before”.
The new land is going to be built at Yas Island, Abu Dhabi, within the world’s largest indoor theme park, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.
Warner Bros. have promised to invite Potter fans to step inside iconic locations from the wizarding world, which will be “seen in an all-new way”.
While specific details are thin on the ground, Warner Bros. say the land will be “significant in scale” and will join the existing six immersive lands already at the award-winning theme park.
Pam Lifford, President, Global Brands and Experiences from Warner Bros. Discovery, said: “The Wizarding World offers something for fans of every age to enjoy.
“The original Harry Potter stories and the blockbuster film series continue to captivate and inspire hundreds of millions of fans around the world.
“Our Global Themed Entertainment team will expand our successful Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi to bring this magical experience to life.
“Together with our lands at Universal Parks, this will add a wholly new and spectacular destination for fans to immerse themselves in.”
The addition of a Harry Potter themed land at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi expands upon a line-up of themed lands and experiences, including Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, Cartoon Junction, Gotham City and Metropolis.
The ground-breaking date for the land has yet to be revealed, along with other details, but enough has been announced to get Potter fans excited.
The land will be the latest in global Potter-based attractions, alongside Harry Potter New York, Warner Bros. Studio Tour London – The Making of Harry Potter, Warner Bros. Studio Tour Tokyo, and the Platform 9 3⁄4 retail shops.
There is also The Wizarding World of Harry Potter in Orlando, Florida.
It’s not the only themed land to be opening soon.
A new Gigantosaurus-themed land is set to open in the UK in the next two years.
The new four-acre interactive play park will centre around the internationally renowned TV show.
The animated series is currently streaming worldwide on both Disney+ and Netflix.
The attraction is being created within the existing 85-acre Park at ROARR! Dinosaur Adventure in Norfolk.
Gigantosaurus Land will open at ROARR! in 2024 and will include a vertical volcano-themed drop ride, spinning flower teacups, water play, a jumping pillow, a towering wooden play ‘n’ climb den and more.
The land has been designed to encourage exploratory and sensory family play, and there will also be several interactive attractions for families to experience together.
Meanwhile, a Frozen land is set to open at Disneyland Paris.
