Ready to learn more about them? Read on to know which characters you can meet in Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi and the different rides dedicated to them.
Cartoon Junction at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi
Cartoon Junction is a whimsical town where some of your favorite human and animal characters live. It features exhilarating adventures and escapades you may recognize from your favorite childhood shows. Below are all the cartoon characters you can meet there:
1. Bugs Bunny
You’ll find Bugs Bunny all over Warner Bros. World, both with and without his straight-talking girlfriend Lola. From the Hare Salon to the ticketing area, this carrot-munching, Oscar-winning character is everywhere.
Bugs Bunny’s appearance isn’t limited to Cartoon Junction, though. If you head over to Warner Bros. Plaza, you can watch him and the rest of the gang in the Warner Bros. Cinema Spectacular show.
2. Daffy Duck
Though he always seems to come second to Bugs, Daffy Duck is equally honored in this part of Warner Bros. World. You’ll find this sneaky-but-often-misunderstood black duck in the Daffy Jet-Propelled Pogo Stick and Ani-Mayhem rides.
He also joins Bugs in the streets of Cartoon Junction and appears in the Warner Bros. Cinema Spectacular show.
3. Tom and Jerry
Famous for their literal cat-and-mouse routine, Tom and Jerry also grace the streets of Cartoon Junction—together as always. After all, even though Jerry the mouse often outwits the poor housecat, Tom, they both can’t seem to live without each other.
You can find this duo in the Tom and Jerry: Swiss Cheese Spin roller coaster ride in Warner Bros. World.
4. Scooby-Doo and Shaggy
A talking brown dog who is best friends with a shaggy-looking guy hanging out in Cartoon Junction? That’s Scooby-Doo and Shaggy, alright.
Considered Mystery Incorporated’s heart and funny bones, the ghoul-unmasking duo continue to solve mysteries in the Scooby-Doo: The Museum of Mysteries attraction in Warner Bros. World.
Taz has got to do what a Tasmanian devil’s got to do: wreak havoc everywhere he goes.
In Warner Bros. World, you’ll find this snappy tornado of a creature at the Ricochet Racin’ with Taz ride, where children can race around at speeds even the Tasmanian Devil would be proud of.
6. Tweety and Sylvester
Don’t be fooled by his big, round eyes and adorable looks; Tweety will take his gloves off once the sneaky, bird-hungry cat Sylvester comes around with dinner in mind.
Watch this duo run around at the Tweety Wild Wockets ride. Tweety is also featured in Ani-Mayhem, while you could also find Sylvester in the ACME Factory attraction.
7. Elmer Fudd
Whether it’s a duck or a rabbit, Elmer Fudd will indeed (attempt to) catch them. Of course, hunting isn’t Elmer’s only trade.
In Cartoon Junction, he also runs Fudd Hardware, where you can purchase some bits and bobs as memorabilia for your trip to Warner Bros. World.
Dynamite Gulch at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi
In this life-sized version of the Wild West reside the more rugged characters from Looney Tunes, a family from the future, and someone who is not of this world.
8. Wile E. Coyote and Road Runner
Though he may never quite catch up to the Road Runner, Wile E. Coyote pursues his chase from TV screens to the largest indoor amusement park in the UAE.
Join him as he tries to capture the Road Runner in the Fast & Furry-ous ride. It’s a losing battle on the Coyote’s part, but it’s stupendously fun.
9. Marvin the Martian
Want some out-of-this-world adventure? Join Marvin the Martian in The Martian Crater Crashers and bump your space pod with everyone else’s in an exciting bump-car style ride.
You’ll also find your favorite alien in the Ani-Mayhem ride, joining the rest of the gang in Cartoon Junction.
10. Yosemite Sam
Another character who’s locked horns with Bugs Bunny, Yosemite Sam can be found along the streets of Dynamite Gulch and the Yosemite Sam Rootin’ Tootin’ Gas attraction.
11. The Jetsons
The only futuristic family in the Gulch, George, Jane, Judy, and Elroy Jetson, bring you a few hundred years into the future in their home in Orbit City with their pet Astro and robo-maid Rosie.
Besides The Jetsons Cosmic Orbiter ride, you may also find The Jetsons in the streets of Dynamite Gulch.
Bedrock at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi
Who doesn’t know of this Stone Age cartoon? Relive your childhood in this area dedicated to your favorite family of cave people.
12. The Flintstones
Fred, Wilma, and Pebbles celebrate the Stonetennial Day in The Flintstones Bedrock River Adventure, but that’s not the only place you’ll see them in Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi.
Fred frequents the streets of his hometown. Either that, or he is filling up his bottomless belly at the Bronto Burgers and Ribs.
Meanwhile, his strong-willed wife Wilma is featured in the Bedrock Boutique, where you can buy souvenirs from your prehistoric adventure.
Gotham City at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi
Gotham City—a place that Batman and other DC characters call home. Look for the Dark Knight, his friends, and his foes in some of the rides to complete your Warner Bros. World adventure.
Bruce Wayne’s alter-ego Batman roams the streets of Gotham, keeping it safe from villainous masterminds like Poison Ivy in Batman: Knight Flight. He also joins his brothers-(and-sister)-in-arms to ward off enemies from space in Justice League: Warworld Attacks.
There’s only ever one side worth fighting for when it comes to Catwoman – her own. Good or bad, naughty or nice, this feline wonder has her paws and claws all over Gotham City, particularly in Cat’s Eye Jewelry, where baubles and gorgeous trinkets abound.
15. The Joker
There’s no Batman without The Joker. Or at least, that is what the nefarious clown wants you to think.
Visit this Arkham Asylum alum, witness his antics, and join his mind-boggling challenges in The Joker Funhouse, alongside another Gotham villain, Two-Face.
16. Harley Quinn
Harley Quinn continues her quest to win over The Clown Prince of Crime, even at the expense of Gotham City. Though charming and alluring on the outside, there’s something wrong with this woman’s reasoning.
But if there’s one thing you’ll like about the version of her in Warner Bros. World, it’s Harlequin Confections—a gourmet candy store in Gotham that will surely tickle your taste buds.
17. The Riddler
Though not quite clinically crazy yet, The Riddler is bordering on insane with his unnatural obsession with puzzles – some that even put the innocent residents of Gotham at risk. Help Batman beat his mind-bending challenges in The Riddler Revolution.
Dreaded for his knack for using fear toxins, the Scarecrow brings his modus operandi to Warner Bros. World’s Scarecrow Scare Raid ride. Try it if you must, but remember to never succumb to the fear and enjoy the ride.
19. Mr. Freeze
Though this icy character brings terror to Gotham City, the Mr. Freeze Ice Cream Truck brings joy to children and their parents who visit this side of Warner Bros. World.
20. The Penguin
Who else wants to dress like the aristocratic and intelligent Penguin? Raise your hands and head straight to Cobblepot Formal Wear, the shop that dresses the most refined gentlemen in Gotham City.
Metropolis at Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi
The Metropolis in Warner Bros. World offers more than a life-sized model of the famous fictional city from DC. This area also serves as home to Superman and Lois Lane and the headquarters of the Justice League.
One of Earth’s mightiest superheroes, Superman keeps Metropolis and the world safe alongside the rest of the Justice League.
Rub elbows with the Man of Steel in the streets of Metropolis, and watch him and the rest of the heroic League fight intergalactic enemies in Justice League: Warworld Attacks.
You can even dress like Superman using apparel brought from Justice League: Hero Supply Co.
22. Green Lantern
Watch Hal Jordan’s Green Lantern join a team of interstellar peacekeepers in Green Lantern: Galactic Odyssey, featured in no less than a 4D flying theater.
You can also witness his heroism in Justice League: Warworld Attacks. Or, better yet, do both to maximize your visit to the theme park.
23. Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg
Banding against evildoers on Earth and beyond, experience a 5D immersive ride with Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg, fighting alongside Batman, Superman, and the Green Lantern in Justice League: Warworld Attacks.
You can also buy outfits and memorabilia based on the Amazonian princess, the fastest man on the planet, the rightful king of Atlantis, and the half-human-half-machine hero at Justice League: Hero Supply Co.
