After almost 20 years running theme parks and attraction in Australia, Bianca Sammut relocated to the United Arab Emirates in 2014 to manage one of the world’s most ambitious waterparks – Yas Waterworld, and later Ferrari World Abu Dhabi.
In June of this year she was given responsibility for the wider cluster of theme parks at Yas Island that also includes Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. All three, owned by Miral and operated by Farah Experiences, are world-class attractions that have put Abu Dhabi on the international theme park map. They are supported at Yas Island by the CLYMB indoor adventure hub. Taking shape nearby is the eagerly-awaited Sea World Abu Dhabi, set to open in 2022.
An IAAPA Certified Attractions Executive (ICAE), Sammut began her career in theme park management at Australia’s Wonderland. She then moved to the Sydney Tower Observatory before spending 10 years with Village Roadshow Theme Parks at Warner Bros Movie World, Sea World Australia and Wet ’n’ Wild Sydney.
