With the winter break, parents often wonder how long it will be till they hear that first “Mom/dad, I’m bored.”
If it’s any consolation, you’re not alone. But if you get ahead of it and start planning now, you’ll be off to a good start (or at least delay the inevitable a bit longer).
When it comes to kids’ activities in Abu Dhabi, especially during the winter, Warner Bros. World Abu Dhabi tops the list.
As the World’s largest indoor theme park, it’s home to six unique “lands,” 29 exhilarating rides and kid-friendly attractions, live shows, dining and shopping options and endless family fun.
