Batman:The Animated Series Wiki

The World of the Future Fair was a theme park located in Gotham City.


During its initial days, the Fair was an amusement park very visited by the population of Gotham City. Bruce Wayne visited the park along with his girlfriend Andrea Beaumont. They really enjoyed the experience, and in the park, Bruce watched a futuristic car that would serve him as inspiration for the Batmobile.

After it closed down and became derelict, the Joker used this theme park as hideout. Salvatore Valestra visited this park to ask help from Joker, but he instead killed him with his toxin and dynamited his penthouse. Later, the Phantasm went to the place to kill the Joker. Batman foiled the attempt, but the Fair exploded because Joker had rigged the complex.

Ironically, this place is nothing else as a mirror of Bruce and Andrea's relashionships: in the beginning it was bright and promised so much, but in the end it was ruined and corrupted by the Joker and other criminals, and, in the end, destroyed.
