Theme parks are a constant hit with UAE residents and Abu Dhabi is going one step ahead with the world’s first ever Warner Bros. branded indoor theme park, to be called Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.

All the rides and its six themed lands are based on stories and characters from DC and Warner Bros. Animation. Expected to debut in the summer this year, the Abu Dhabi venue will feature 29 immersive rides and family friendly attractions throughout.

What we are eagerly waiting for?

Everything, no really… but here are some highlights

A super-hero protected city

Metropolis is a modern, well, metropolis (city) protected by DC superheroes such as Superman, other Justice League heroes including Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern, Cyborg and The Flash, along with the Teen Titans. The skyscraper city has a media conglomerate, Daily Planet, which reports on the fate of the Metropolis with a riveting battle of good versus evil in Superman 360: Battle for Metropolis.

Souvenirs worth framing

Fans can also capture their visit to the Daily Planet at Front Page Photo, where they will appear on the front-page of the famed publication, and pick up special editions from the Daily Planet Newsstand.

Here are some other popular souvenirs to take home from Dubai

Save the galaxy or train for it

The Green Lantern: Galactic Odyssey is promised to be an awe-inspiring 4D experience that transports guests across the cosmos to extraordinary worlds with multi-sensory special effects. Another attraction for young guests is the Teen Titans Training Academy, a multi-level play area featuring a zip line and other physical activities that invites up-and-coming heroes to showcase their skills alongside the legendary Teen Titans.
