World’s first Warner Bros indoor theme park – Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi
A guide to one of the best theme parks in the world – Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi, Know all about it here!
The excitement of visiting this theme park began at the time of booking the tickets online, it’s not like that this was going to be my first visit to such theme parks but this had a different charm. Many people have visited Disneyland, cherished moments with characters like Mickey and Donald but how many of us have enjoyed time with Flintstones and Batman? A few, I guess…
This Park gave me a chance to cherish all the fun childhood memories of Fred and Wilma, get cool pictures with superheroes like Batman and Superman.
This Park will not only make you meet with Flintstones but also with other loved characters like Scooby Doo and Friends, Justice League, Tom & Jerry, Tweety, and so many more.
The best thing about this place is that there is something for all age groups here, easy and fun rides(not much adventurous) for young kids, adventurous roller-coasters for all, and 3D simulator rides, augmented reality rides for the brave ones.
This huge park is well divided into 6 following parts (listed anticlockwise here):
- Warner Bros. Plaza (Center)
- Dynamite Gulch
- Cartoon Junction
- Gotham City (Most adventurous rides/ Augmented reality rides)
- Metropolis (Augmented reality rides)
There are park maps and information brochures with Meet and Great timings and Show timings available at the entrance in a couple of languages. You must collect both of them and plan your visit in a couple of minutes.
A better way is to download the app and plan your visit, keeping track of all the queues.
Here is a full video of this amazing theme park, enjoy!
There are many characters whom you would like to meet and watch all the amazing 5 shows, to catch them all you must make a rough plan. This guide will make your planning easier for sure.
This park is designed in a circular pattern, we begin our tour from the right-hand side of the park and make our way back to the center, Warner Bros. Plaza.
Note: If you would like to experience more thrilling rides and superheroes inspired environment first then you must start the tour from left-hand side park, called the Metropolis.
This park is inspired by the Flintstones, the very first park on the right-hand side. This is my favorite of all the parks here, I am sure you would love all the parks equally but I am being a little biased.
Bedrock River Adventure
You can enjoy here a river adventure, a boat ride where a fun story of Flintstones and friends is narrated. It is not at all a scary ride so if you are scared of more adventurous rides then this is your cup of tea.
After this fun ride get clicked with the famous characters, they appear 6 times a day, every hour basically from 12 pm to 6 pm (except 2 pm), so you will easily meet them.
Best place to buy souvenirs. Such souvenirs are expensive for sure but I always make a point to get some of it as it is almost impossible to find such authentic stuff anywhere else.
Every park has restaurants so you will not have to starve even for a minute. I went to this park on a Wednesday so I didn’t find long queues here rather I didn’t have to wait for more than 5 minutes for anything.
Vegetarians will find some difficulty in finding the right kind of food for them in some parks whereas non-vegetarians(meat lovers) are in for a party!
Bronto Burgers and Ribs, and Mammoth Munchies are the 2 restaurants here which offer huge portions of burgers in a prehistoric manner. You can get some good shakes as well.
Well, I was hungry.
This is the next park, dedicated to Marvin, The Jetsons, and Coyote. This #WbWorld has rides for all age groups and you will find 3 of them here.

Now you enter the superheroes zone from the cartoon world. Up until now, you might feel that the park is more for the younger audience but now onwards you will feel different because of the more adventurous rides.
a. The Riddler Revolution
This one of the most adventurous ride in this entire park. Unfortunately, I couldn’t try this due to it being under renovation but you must try it on your visit. It is a brain twister where the seat rolls and spins and gives you a thrilling coaster experience.
b. Rogues’ Gallery Games
There are some games stalls where you stand a chance to win some super cute soft toys. If you are a “Batman and Joker” fan then you are in for a surprise.
A stage show called “Joker Surprise Party” is held near these games, like 6 times a day. Harley Quinn throws a surprise party for Joker and one guest out of the audience gets a chance to be a part of an evil experiment! You can be the lucky one…
c. Scarecrow Scare Raid
Sorry, the picture is not very clear but gives you an idea of how the ride looks like.

d. The Joker Funhouse
It is a fun walk through which takes you to mirror maze, optical illusion, physical challenges, and a super cool exit.
Warner Bros World Gotham City The Joker Funhouse
I loved the way the exit is planned, you will also get alternate options like stairs and elevators.
Note: It is not advised for claustrophobic people and people with back problems.
e. Batman: Night Flight
I couldn’t try the Riddler Revolution but I did try this! It is a thrilling experience, this ride is a perfect example of a 3D simulator experience where the chair moves in all possible directions.
You must not skip this ride. People who are scared of roller coasters, they should avoid it.
Although this is not a roller coaster ride but a world of augmented reality which provides you with a complete 3D environment (not just a single screen). Your flight (kind of vehicle) will actually move in many directions, you will be facing upwards, downwards and so on. It is a thriller not less than a roller coaster ride.
Along with these rides, there are souvenir shops, and a couple of dining options as well.
Welcome to Metropolis, a place where you will meet many superheroes like Flash, Superman, and more. Like every other park, here also you will find a stage show, a 3D simulator shows, souvenir shops, restaurants, and rides.
Hall of Justice – Justice League: Warworld Attacks
This picture above shows you the Hall of Justice, you will catch a super cool simulator 3D show where the Justice League protects the city.
