Warner Bros. World, Abu Dhabi, the theme park welcomes you into a world of fantasy. I was as much excited as my son to visit this theme park, recreatemy childhood and above all have loads of fun. The park is divided into six immersive lands – Warner Bros. Plaza, Bedrock, Dynamite Gulch, Cartoon Junction, Gotham City and Metropolis. Warner Bros. World is packed with rides, shows and attractions for everyone, big and small alike. It is situated on Yas Island, Abu Dhabiand covers 1.65 million square feet.
When I stepped into this place, I was awestruck by the set up and was anxious to make the best of everything the place had to offer. I had made up my mind to sit on every ride (which I didn’t due to my phobia for heights) and explore every nook and corner of the park (which I dutifully did). I spend a whole day here, just as excited as my child and was transported to the lands of my favourite characters for a one-of-a-kind immersive experience.
