This week marks the 4th anniversary of the world’s largest indoor theme park, Warner Brothers World Abu Dhabi. An incredible theme park offering thrilling family adventures starring characters from Warner Brothers most popular properties. These properties feature the likes of the Looney Tunes, Batman, and Scooby Doo & the Gang. This landmark theme park was an absolute pleasure to be part of, from the brilliant on site team to the exciting creative challenges this project offered.
The Warner Brothers World Abu Dhabi creative team worked tirelessly to create an immersive atmosphere bringing the animated worlds of Warner Bros, to life. The level of immersion is carried through the entire ride systems making our world renowned RG-11 Gating Systems part of this creative approach. Garmendale’s efficient and reliable gating solution, the RG-11 system is currently operating on multiple ride systems in several of the parks themed areas, Dynamite Gulch, Cartoon Junction, and Gotham City to name a few. Each rides gating system was to be custom designed to match the theming, this set a tantalising task for our design team as they went about designing gates for iconic fictional characters. Below you will find a variety of designs conjured up by our incredible team for crowd-pleasing rides such as, Scarecrow’s Scare Raid, Scooby Doo & The Museum Of Mystery, and Ricochet Racin’ with Taz. The team modified colour, shape, in-fill design, and added special features to make each gating system unique to the world and characters it would be representing.
Not only did our gating system have to meet a unique design specification but the gates power must come from a specific source as well. With no air available on site for the first time ever our RG-11 gating systems must be electrically powered. Garmendale’s highly trained electrical team got to work ensuring the reliable and efficient qualities making the original RG-11 gates so popular carry forward into this new electrical variant.
A variety of RG-11 Gates were transported securely over to Yas Island in Abu Dhabi, where our Garmendale installation team went to work, installing, SAT testing, and commissioning our unique selection of Gating Systems. This exciting project is one of our favourites of recent memory with a selection of great design challenges and a variety of brilliant IPs to work with. The entire Garmendale team would like to take this opportunity to thank Warner Brothers World for allowing us be part of this incredible project and congratulations on 4 phenomenal years of operation.
