Harry Potter-themed land coming to Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island

The attraction will be part of the Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi indoor theme park

The region’s first Harry Potter-themed attraction is set to open within the world’s largest indoor theme park, Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi.

Created by Abu Dhabi-based Miral and Warner Bros Global Themed Entertainment, the Harry Potter Wizarding World will invite fans to step inside iconic locations from Harry's adventures.

A global phenomenon, JK Rowling's fictitious Potter character has evolved from the pages of her best-selling books into eight films and multiple Wizarding World of Harry Potter attractions, from Florida to Japan.

Commenting on the announcement, Miral chairman Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak said: “We are very proud of our continuous partnership with Warner Bros Discovery and excited to be bringing this spellbinding first to the Middle East and the world in the future. This is yet another testament to our commitment to continue to position Yas Island as a top global destination for entertainment and leisure, and a great addition to Abu Dhabi’s tourism offerings.”

The original Harry Potter stories and the blockbuster film series continue to captivate and inspire hundreds of millions of fans around the world, and our Global Themed Entertainment team together with our world-class partner Miral, 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 adds to the park's line-up of themed lands and experiences, which currently include Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, Cartoon Junction, Gotham City and Metropolis.

An opening date for the Harry Potter Wizarding World attraction is yet to be announced.
