Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi has been named the world’s largest indoor theme park by Guinness World Records. The theme park in the United Arab Emirates spans an area of 1.65 million square feet.

Warner Bros World, located on Yas Island near Ferrari World and Yas Waterworld, is also the world’s first Warner Bros-themed indoor theme park.

The attraction, which opened in July 2018, features characters from Warner Bros’ franchises, including Looney Tunes, DC Comics, and Hanna-Barbera.

“We are incredibly excited to receive yet another accolade on behalf of our world-class theme park that has captured the hearts of countless guests since opening,” said Don Strickler, general manager of Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi.
