The waiting is finally over, folks… Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi opens to the public today (Wednesday July 25).

The US$1billion (Dhs3.7billion) mega-park brings superheroes, villains, cartoons and childhood favourites to life on Yas Island.

The theme park is the latest superstar attraction rolled-out as part of the UAE capital’s bid to be a worldwide tourism destination.

It is split into six distinct zones – Bedrock, Warner Bros. Plaza, Metropolis, Gotham City, Cartoon Junction and Dynamite Gulch.

A colossal amount of thought and effort has gone into creating the park. Don’t be surprised to find the likes of Looney Tunes’ Bugs Bunny, Scooby-Doo, Fred Flintstone and Batman walking around the stunning sets.

Dozens of UAE dignitaries and their families visited on Tuesday July 24 for the inauguration of the new attraction.

The ceremony was attended by HH Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed Al Nahyan, Abu Dhabi Crown Prince and Deputy Supreme Commander of the UAE Armed Forces, and HH Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai.

Sheikh Mohammad Bin Zayed tweeted: “Sheikh Mohammad Bin Rashid and I were delighted to inaugurate Warner Bros. World, the world’s first Warner Bros.-branded indoor theme park on Yas Island.

“We are developing the tourism sector to position the UAE among top global destinations for family entertainment and leisure.”

We’re bowled over by the grand scale of the 1.65million sq ft facility, the amazing theatrics and the blockbuster rides – including ones based on Batman’s enemies The Riddler and The Scarecrow as well as Roadrunner’s hunter Wile E. Coyote – that will make it a hit.

But for us, the beauty is in the detail. No expense has been spared in the painstaking process to build a concept fit to dazzle and amaze. Every inch of the sets was built by hand and the little touches are just as important as the eye-catching headline acts.

The whole experience is broken down into several interactive stories, all revolving around you. Whether it’s joining Batman on his mission to save the soul of Gotham City or helping Scooby-Doo foil yet another baddie, you won’t be short of things to keep you entertained.

So if you’re looking for something brand-new to do this weekend – look no further than Warner Bros. World.

That’s all folks.
