ABU DHABI : Inside the New Warner Bros World Theme Park

Travellerczech was one of the lucky few, to preview the world’s newest theme park…Abu Dhabi’s Warner Bros World!

The entire 1.6 million sq ft park and all of its 29 attractions took 7 years to build and promises to deliver immersive experiences and unique rides.

The park itself is located right next to the Yas Island’s famous Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld. The opening of a third theme park makes Yas Island a multi-day destination filled with thrills, shopping, and culture in the nearby Louvre Abu Dhabi museum.

Btw…the opening date was just announced! So, put 25th of July in to your diary 😉

I was hugely impressed with today’s ( 19th April ) sneak peek inside the huge golden structure. Every inch is immaculately themed and it’s not even completed! Love the “real sky” ceilings which makes you feel outdoor and lots of story-telling details.

Few rides were in testing mode and if this is only the first glimpse, we are in for a treat!

Park is divided into 6 Zones 

  • WARNER BROS. PLAZA – Expect Golden Age Hollywood Glamour, immersive environment and a wide offering of dining and shopping.
  • BEDROCK – Home of the Flinstones and one big wet adventure flume ride!
  • DYNAMITE GULCH – Watch for the Roadrunner and board Fast and Furry-ous inverted coaster in this crazy land!

DUBAI SAFARI : My Review of Dubai’s Latest Attraction!

It has been three months since the opening of Dubai’s newest attraction…the Dubai Safari Park.

I decided to delay my first visit to the park until the dust settled and it was worth the wait!  Even though the 120-hectare wildlife park in Al Warqa area is not fully finished, there is plenty to keep you entertained.

Once fully complete, 2500 animals will call this place their home. I was happy to see spacious and nicely designed enclosures with the well-being of the animals kept in mind. They even have Air Conditioning to keep them cool ( if you travel to Dubai in summer you know what I mean 🙂 )


The entire park is divided into five zones.  One of them is the actual Safari tour and for this, you need to purchase a separate ticket or purchase combo ticket at the entrance ( see details at the end of this post ).

Transport between the different zones is serviced by buses and open trams.


  1. Arabian Village: Take a 15min ride on the open train through sand dunes and watch animals native to the Middle East region, such as Oryx, Gazelles, and Antelopes.
  2. Asian Village: Spot a Moon Bears, Gibbons or Komodo Dragons. The Sea Lion theatre is not open yet.
  3. African Village: Walk between massive Baobab trees, visit UAE largest Aviary and Reptile house in this self-walking zone filled with fun things to do and see. If you love Meerkats same as I do, this is the place for you 🙂
  4. Wadi Area: Beautifully landscaped valley with a river, walking paths and lush greenery. Perfect for a picnic or a nap under the trees.
  5. Safari Village: Exciting 40min Safari drive-through water and land. Watch carefully for White Rhinos, Tigers, Girrafes, and Crocodiles. Easily the highlight of the day!






The Good :

  • Beautifully landscaped park with a huge amount of greenery
  • Affordable entrance fee
  • Friendly staff
  • Large and very enjoyable Safari with a lot of animals
  • Two huge play areas for Kids

Not So Good :

  • It was dirty during my visit, buses full of rubbish, chewing gums etc. Hmmm
  • No restaurants are open yet, but they have food trucks.
  • Food trucks only accept cash ( except one )
  • The glass viewing panels into the animals enclosures were scratched and dirty, it was difficult to take a decent shot

Currently, the Spanish global park operator Parques Reunidos is taking over the Dubai Safari’s day-to-day operations, so we should see some improvements soon !


  • Tickets: AED 50 / Kids 20 & Combo with Safari AED 85 / Kids AED 30
  • Open daily from 9am till 7pm
  • Accessible by car only – from Dubai Marina 40min / Dubai Downtown 20min
  • Area – Al Warqa / opposite Dragon Mart


Despite few “glitches”, I have really enjoyed my time in the park and spent more than four hours discovering all the different areas, exhibits and interactive experiences. It is a perfect place to escape the city, relax and have a fun day out for a very fair price!
