Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi was first announced back in April 2016 and it’s almost ready for the public, with an opening set for summer 2018. Today, we have a closer look at two of the park’s themed lands and their attractions.

The 1.65-million-square foot indoor theme park includes 29 rides, family-friendly attractions, and live entertainment in six themed lands: Metropolis, Cartoon Junction, Gotham City, Dynamite Gulch, Bedrock, and Warner Bros. Plaza.

Metropolis is a modern city filled with skyscrapers and protected by DC superheroes, including Superman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman, Cyborg, and the Teen Titans. Inside the Daily Planet, guests can ride Superman 360, an attraction featuring the superhero in a battle of good vs. evil. Other attractions include Justice League: Warworld Attacks, an immersive dark ride with special effects and media; Green Lantern: Galactic Odyssey, a 4D “flying theater” experience; and Teen Titans Training Academy, a multi-level play area with a zip line.

Restaurants in Metropolis include Ace O’Clubs and Bibbo Bibbowski’s.

In Cartoon Junction, guests can find favorite characters from Looney Tunes and Hanna-Barbera, including Scooby-Doo, Tom and Jerry, Bugs Bunny, Tweety, Sylvester, and more. Attractions include Tom and Jerry Swiss Cheese Spin, Scooby-Doo The Museum of Mysteries, Tweety Wild Wockets, Cartoon Junction Carousel, Ani-Mayhem, and Meet! Bugs (and Daffy). 

Restaurants in Cartoon Junction include ACME Commissary, Huckleberry Hound Pies, Penelope Pitstop Cotton Candy, and Yogi Bear and Boo Boo Ice Cream.

Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi is located on Yas Island, a man-made location that’s already home to Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld. Plans are also underway for SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, which is set to open in 2022.
