Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi

Abu Dhabi, UAE

The United Arab Emirates became home to two of the world’s largest indoor theme parks when Warner Bros. World opened in July. The Abu Dhabi Yas Island park—which cost $1 billion to build and spreads across 38 acres, just a little smaller than the garden of Buckingham Palace—is designed to entertain all kinds of Warner Bros. fans and also offer them a reprieve from the region’s often sweltering heat. Attractions are grouped into six “neighborhoods,” including Gotham and Metropolis (from the DC Comics universe, featuring superheroes like Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman) and Dynamite Gulch and Cartoon Junction (with animated classics such as Road Runner and Looney Tunes). —Gabby Raymond
