Last weekend I took a trip back to my childhood; LITERALLY. Took a stroll down memory lane with the Flintstones, The Jetsons, Roadrunner, Tazz, Tweety, Sylvester and so many more of my TV buddies. All thanks to the new Warner Bros park situated in the Yas Island, Abu Dhabi.
My insta stories caught so much attention with curiosity as to how the park is. Which is why I feel you need to know it all before you visit the park.

Ticketing and How to Save?
Tickets are available online at wbworldabudhabi.com
Children under the age of 3 enjoy free entry!
Ticket price for guests under 1.1 metre in height is AED 230/-
Ticket price for guests over 1.1 metre in height is AED 295/-
How to save money? MORE THE MERRIER!
If you are a group of 4 or more, you can opt for the family and friends pass. This reduces the ticket price to AED 220/- per person.
How to save time?
I would strongly suggest to purchase the Flash Pass for AED 150/- per person. This will help you avoid the long lines for rides. On weekends, the wait in general lines are as long as 45 minutes.
Glimpse of the park
Yes Hallelujah, the WB park is 100% indoors which is a blessing in disguise.
Ample parking is available in a parking complex, a short walk away from the park.
Valet Parking is available at AED 45/- flat fee.
The park itself is magnificent and such a pleasure to the eye.
There are 6 lands: WB Plaza, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, Cartoon Junction, Metropolis and Gotham City. Each land does justice to the cartoons that I grew up watching. And it just all came to life.
Step into the WB plaza for a feel of the Hollywood boulevard. Don’t forget to watch the spectacle of some of the greatest moments delivered on screen by WB over the years.
Overview of Rides and Attractions, best and the worst:
Given that the prices are steep, it would be best to see if there are enough in store to get your monies worth.
Thrills: There aren’t many thrilling rides. Of the lot, these are my best picks
- Riddler @ Gotham City
- Fast and the Furryious @ Dynamite Gulch
- Green Lantern @ Metropolis
Fairly good rides: There is a great variety of rides and games with amazing 3D animations and visuals. Of the lot, these are my picks
- Flintstones @ Bedrock
- Scooby Doo @ Cartoon Junction
- Tom and Jerry @ Cartoon Junction
- The Joker @ Metropolis
Rides that didn’t impress me:
- Justice League @ Metropolis
- Animayhem @ Dynamite Gulch
- Scarecrow @ Metropolis
Rides that were not open:
- Batman @Metropolis
- Superman 360 @Metropolis
In conclusion, if you’re comparing this to IMG, the park is bigger but yet there isn’t as much to do. You can be in and out of the park in just a couple of hours. But do I think it’s worth the experience? YES INDEED. I do recommend going at least once!
