Attractions for everyone, thrilling rides for the older ones, or peaceful activities for kids. Enough to please everyone, all in air-conditioned spaces, which is welcome when high temperatures are at their highest. In this article you will find information about the tour, including the entrance fee, the price of the passes, our review of Warner Bros World Yas Island, and how to get there from Dubai.
Extreme attractions for those who want to thrill
The highlight of Warner Bros Abu Dhabi Park in Yas Island is ast and Furry-ou, a dynamic epic ride in a desert in the Southwest United States. Attention, children must measure 1m10 minimum to participate.
Other thrilling attractions include Swiss Cheese Spin (the world of Tom and Jerry), Knight Flight (in the skin of Batman in a frantic race with his Batmobile), Warworld Attacks (the thematic universe of Justice League) or The Riddler Revolution.
If the whole family is not a fan to be scared in the thrilling attractions of Warner Bros Abu Dhabi Park, fortunately there are many other attractions quieter, yet still exciting.
As for example The Flintstones Bedrock River Adventure that takes you into prehistoric times at the dawn of the Stone Age, or in a completely different universe The Jetsons Cosmic Orbiter, which gives you the controls of a spaceship. We will also meet our cartoon hero Scooby-Doo in the attraction The Museum of Mysteries. Other attractions include Ani-Mayhem, The Joker Funhouse and Rogues Gallery Games.
In short there is normally for all tastes. Not to mention the superheroes with Galactic Odyssey attractions (Green Lantern), Battle for Metropolis (Superman in a 360-degree 3D world).
Note that some of these attractions are not accessible to children under 1m10.
Attractions for children
If all that we have seen so far has been suitable for adults and teenagers, here are other attractions in the Abu Dhabi Warner Bros entertainment Park, which are more suitable for children.
These include Marvin the Martian Crater Crashers, Cartoon Junction Carousel, Daffy Jet-Propelled Pogo Stick, DTweety Wild Wockets, DTweety Wild Wockets,Ricochet Racin’ with Taz, Acme Factory, and the last one, Teen Titans Training Academy.
Opening hours and practical information
Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi is open daily from 10am to 8pm. Thursdays and Friday nights, the amusement park is even open until 10pm. To be able to do all rides, it is better to plan to spend the day there. On weekdays outside school holidays, when attendance is lower, one afternoon may suffice.
To know exact times, visit the official website.
The price of admission tickets (and other fees)
The adult and children admission ticket is set at 295AED. Children under 1m10 have a discounted rate of #230AED#, but they do not have access to all attractions.
There is a possibility to have a combined ticket with Ferrari World Park or with Yas WaterWorld Park. If you want to visit two parks on the same day, the combined ticket costs 395AED. We do not recommend taking this option on weekends (Friday, Saturday, and during local holidays) because of the crowds that make it difficult to divide the day into two. The same two-day combined ticket costs 435AED, which is clearly interesting if you want to go to two amusement parks on Yas Island. Finally, if you want to do the 3 parks of Yas Island, ie Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi, Ferrari World and Yas WaterWorld it will cost you 545AED. This is clearly the most economical option. In this case it is better to stay at a hotel in Yas Island (see our tips in the next section).

Like most theme parks of this kind, it is expected that you will consume on-site refreshments and food in one of the many cafes and restaurants, with the provision of outdoor food that can be controlled at the entrance.
