Age Specific / Kids

One family name standing out in a child of a certain age’s mind is Warner Bros. and its first indoor theme park, Warner Bros. World, is coming to Abu Dhabi. Developed by Miral, Abu Dhabi’s creator of destinations, is reportedly investing in a $1 billion partnership with Warner Bros. Entertainment.

All of this is to say, Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is getting wacky.

Families and guests are transported to six unique and incredibly designed lands, all designed to impeccable detail. Explore Cartoon Junction, Bedrock, DC’s Metropolis and Gotham City, Dynamite Gulch and Warner Bros. Plaza — together the Warnerverse hosts nearly 30 rides, unique live entertainment, shows, themed experiences and interactive family-friendly attractions.

Themed experiences, of course, don’t end with rides and entertainment. Every dining establishment from sit-down restaurants and quick-bite cafes are completely custom- designed spaces with the Warner Bros. World of characters. Even some of the merchandise has been custom-created for this specific park and guests can’t find it anywhere else.

With a span of characters, including the DC Super Hero universe and Looney Tunes animated characters, kids of all ages enjoy the immersive experience. Watch Wonder Woman, Superman and Batman save the day, or head over to see Tom, Jerry and the Flintstones nearly ruin it.

Head to the unique town of Warner Bros. Plaza, where guests stroll through the streets before being transported into the Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi. Expect Art Deco designs and truly surprising experiences at every corner of the park.

Teens and older kids will appreciate the dark, twisted world of Gotham City, where Harley Quinn and the Joker stir up trouble for The Justice League. Bring the little ones to Cartoon Junction for something light and airy, or just enjoy the stroll down memory lane revisiting old favorites. The Warner Bros. World is extensive and just one of Yas Island’s many family draws.

Car lovers have Ferrari World Abu Dhabi and Yas Marina Circuit — one of the world’s most technologically-advanced Formula 1 circuits; water babies have Yas Waterworld Abu Dhabi; shop-a-holics have Yas Mall and Yas Marina. All ages love Yas Beach, while golfers head out to Yas Links Abu Dhabi.
