The Flintstones haven’t had a new TV series since the 1990s. However, it remains a familiar sight to a lot of people out there, which makes sense because it was once one of the most successful franchises on the TV screen for decades and decades. For those who are unfamiliar with the franchise, The Flintstones was a sitcom focused on two families called the Flintstones and the Rubbles set in a prehistoric setting that was deliberately designed to look like 20th Century America, which made the whole thing very relatable and at the same time very memorable.
What Can Flintstone Fans Expect From Warner Bros. World?
As a result, it is no wonder that The Flintstones still matters when it comes to entertainment. For proof, look no further than the fact that Warner Bros. is planning to have Bedrock in Warner Bros. World, which is a theme park situated in Abu Dhabi. Said area was revealed alongside Dynamite Gulch, which will possess a combined total of four rides as well as two themed restaurants. In particular, it should be mentioned that Bedrock will be featuring the Bedrock River Adventure, though this will be no more than one of its upsides for interested individuals. Overall, The Flintstones is but one of the franchises that will be featured at Warner Bros. World in Abu Dhabi, with other examples ranging from Looney Tunes to DC Comics. Those who are interested in superhero franchises should check out existing information about Warner Bros. World, seeing as how the areas based on both Gotham and Metropolis were revealed earlier.
With that said, Warner Bros. World is an excellent example of Abu Dhabi’s efforts to make itself a leading tourist destination in the Middle East. For those who are unfamiliar with the place, Abu Dhabi is the capital of the United Arab Emirates as well as the capital of the Emirate of Abu Dhabi, which would be the biggest of the seven emirates that make up the country. However, Abu Dhabi isn’t the biggest city in the United Arab Emirates because that particular honor goes to Dubai, which tends to be better known to a lot of people out there.
This push to boost the tourism sector makes sense from an economic perspective. Abu Dhabi is quite rich because it possesses the lion’s share of the oil and gas resources in the United Arab Emirates. However, the problem with oil and gas is that over-reliance on a single sector can produce devastating consequences should said sector ever falter, as shown by the problems encountered by a number of countries because of recent falls in the price of oil and gas. This is without considering future trends in the use of oil and gas, seeing as how there has been so much emphasis on more renewable sources of energy in recent times because of rising concerns over climate change. As a result, Abu Dhabi has a natural interest in seeing its economy become more diverse, with building on its already successful tourism industry being a natural part of that process.
