Get A Look At The Life-Sized Hall Of Justice From The Warner Brothers Theme Park In Abu Dhabi

While Disney is constructing attractions at its theme parks featuring the Marvel Superheroes, there is already a theme park devoted to the DC champions.  Unfortunately, it’s a bit out of the grasp of most fans to go there.  But at the Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi  park on Yas Island, there are areas that replicate both Gotham City and Metropolis.  Gotham City features rides and attractions like: the Batman Knight Flight, a ride that simulates tearing through the streets of Gotham in the Batmobile; The Riddler Revolution, a twisted roller coaster; and The Joker Funhouse, a walk-through that is full of surprises.

Meanwhile, in Metropolis, visitors can experience: Justice League: Warworld Attacks, a 5D thrill ride; Green Lantern: Galactic Odyssey, a 4D “flying theater experience,”; and the Teen Titans Training Academy, a play area with zip lines, net climbing, rope bridges and more.

But perhaps the coolest attraction found in Metropolis is a replica of the great Hall of Justice, as seen in various DC comic books and cartoons which visitors can walk through and view towering statues of the Justice League and other artifacts.

One lucky visitor attended and shared these photos on Twitter:

Fans can also meet and have photos taken with Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Catwoman, Cyborg, The Flash, Green Lantern, Harley Quinn, The Joker, Mr. Freeze, The Penguin, Poison Ivy, The Riddler, The Scarecrow, Supergirl, and Two-Face.

The Hall of Justice first appeared on the ‘Super Friends’ cartoon, which premiered in 1973 and ran for ten years on ABC Saturday mornings and was syndicated afterward.  Following the ‘Super Friends’ cartoon, the Hall of Justice has appeared in subsequent animated series, including ‘Young Justice’ and in the comics.  This base replaced the Justice League Satellite from the comics and was visually inspired by Union Terminal, a train station in Cincinnati, Ohio that was itself inspired by the look of an old-time wooden radio.  It has since been converted into the Cincinnati Museum Center and host various exhibits, both permanent and temporary.

If you can’t afford a trip to Abu Dhabi, perhaps this is a more reasonable destination.

In addition to the DC Superheroes, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi features rides and attractions based on other WB properties like the Looney Tunes, and Hanna-Barbera cartoons.
