Parque Warner Madrid is a theme park located 23 km southeast of Madrid, Spain, in the municipality of San Martín de la Vega. The park opened on 6 April 2002 under the management of the Six Flags chain, with a 5% ownership share held by Warner Bros. Global Brands and Experiences. In November 2004, the management arrangement with Six Flags was terminated, with the park now managed by WarnerMedia and numerous Spanish investment groups. The name change to Parque Warner Madrid occurred at the start of 2006.

Warner Bros. Movie World Madrid had a grand opening on 5 April 2002 with 10,000 invited guests including Bo Derek and Christopher Lambert as special guests. The park was opened to the general public on 6 April 2002, and was managed by Six Flags until November 2004, although it only had a 5% stake, with the majority shareholder being the Community of Madrid, with 40% of the shares (other shareholders included Caja Madrid 20%, 15% Fadesa, El Corte Inglés 5%, NH Hotels 5%).[1]

In 2002, director Pilar Azcárraga said that visitors' satisfaction level was around 90%, but union sources put it at 50%.[citation needed]

On 3 April 2004, Six Flags sold all of its European parks, with the exception of Warner Bros. Movie World Madrid, to StarParks, a subsidiary of Palamon Capital Partners. Warner Bros. Movie World Madrid was instead sold back to Time Warner and renamed "Warner Bros. Park" at the end of the 2004 season.

In 2006, the park was renamed again to "Parque Warner Madrid". This season saw the première of two new shows, Police Academy 2 and Batman Begins, the latter based on the latest movie from Warner Brothers and DC Comics. Both received good reviews from visitors to the park.

The 2008 season saw two further developments: a water attraction called Oso Yogui and a new show, The Music of Bugs Bunny, based around the glamor of Hollywood in a performance reminiscent of the great Broadway musicals.

In June 2014, a water park, Parque Warner Beach, was opened.[2] The €8.5 million park spans 30,000 square metres (320,000 sq ft) and features two wave pools, a lazy river and two water play areas.[3] Like parts of the original theme park, Parque Warner Beach is themed around Looney Tunes, Hanna Barbera and DC Comics characters.[2]

Among its roller coasters, highlights include Superman: La Atracción de Acero, a first in Europe with its floorless trains, Batman: Arkham Asylum, an inverted roller coaster, Coaster-Express, a wooden coaster and Stunt Fall, a giant inverted boomerang offering guests a vertical drop of 54.4 m reaching a top speed of 115 km/h. Another prominent attraction is La Venganza del Enigma, a structure 100 meters high that drops visitors at 80 km/h.

Other attractions at the park include Correcaminos Bip, Bip, a Wile E. Coyote and the Road Runner coaster which delivers high speeds and drops (though it has no inversions) and La Aventura de Scooby-Doo, an interactive ride for families, manufactured by US firm Sally Corporation.

The park is divided into five themed areas: DC Super Heroes World, Hollywood Boulevard, Movie World Studios, Old West Territory and Cartoon Village.
