All you need to know about the Warner Bros. Discovery this Jeddah Season

Expect a string of fun games and activities…

Attention all DC fans, Potterheads, and parents with young children. Immerse yourself in a fantasy world surrounded by your favourite DC Super Heroes and cartoon characters at Warner Bros. Discovery, which runs until Friday August 16, as part of the Jeddah Season 2024.

Just in time for the school holidays, this family-friendly attraction highlights the studio’s humble beginnings in 1923 and its rise to become the producer of some of the most iconic global characters and stories on screens of all sizes.

The Warner Bros. Discovery is divided into various sub-zones. Here are some of the things you can do at this extravaganza.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Get your wands ready. Experience the beautifully crafted display that honours many of the unforgettable moments that fans have loved for more than two decades, getting an up-close look at everything from costumes to props. Throughout this zone, you will experience everything from selecting a Hogwarts House and picking a wand and Patronus to exploring Hagrid’s Hut and oversized chair and the hall of moving portraits – which are all perfect for photo opps.

Warner Bros. Discovery & Animation

Take a walkthrough experience with Warner Bros. Discovery, celebrating every story with more photo opportunities and iconic moments through the decades. Step into the world of animation and discover the creative process behind the show through exclusive storyboards and character development pieces, shedding light on how these animated icons came to life.

Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight

Prepare your capes and look forward to exciting and interactive activities that will transport fans of all ages to Gotham City. Snap photos alongside the Batmobile and life-size figurines of Batman through the decades, as well as The Joker, Harley Quinn, and Catwoman. Here, you’ll find comic book covers on display and learn about Batman’s history and evolution. There’s also plenty of family entertainment to enjoy, including the Arkham VR game. Our favourite is the Riddler Enigma, a laser maze that you must complete without setting off the alarm.

Justice League Hero Training

Fans of the DC Super Heroes, make a beeline for the Justice League Hero Training zone, where life-size figurines of Batman, The Flash, Aquaman, Wonder Woman and Superman will greet you. As you journey through the zone, go on adventures, take part in obstacle courses, test your skills, and see if you have what it takes to be a hero.

Tom and Jerry: Cheese Town

Tippy-toe over to the world of Tom and Jerry with the Cheese Town experience. Here, you can explore familiar areas from the cartoons like Jerry’s Sweet Home, Study, Living Room Illusion, and The Kitchen. Enjoy original artwork, test your agility skills at the kids’ play area, and have lots of photo opportunities.

Get in the game with Team Looney Tunes in a live stage show

Warner Bros. Discovery Looney Tunes

Bugs and his best buds are teaming up and taking over the stage in a live show. Catch Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck as they go head-to-head in a thrilling sports competition to see who the ultimate coach will be to lead Team Looney Tunes to victory. It will be wacky, Wascally, and bursting with gold medal mayhem. So, suit up, put on your game face, and get ready to join Team Looney Tunes.

Tom and Jerry performance

Catch the legendary cat and mouse duo’s escapade on the big screen, meticulously synchronised with the music played by a live mini-orchestra.

The whole experience ends with a retail store, so don’t forget to check out the merchandise from all your favourite Warner Bros. brands whilst on your way out.

How to get tickets

Tickets are available for purchase via the WeBook platform.

The tickets are priced at SAR65 for general admission and SAR143 for gold admission, which includes a meet-and-greet with your favourite heroes and characters, as well as additional stage shows in the mini theatre and closer parking to the entrance.

Choose from five different time slots for each day: 4pm to 6.30pm, 5.30pm to 8pm, 7pm to 9.30pm, 8.30pm to 11pm and 10pm to midnight. It is important that you arrive for your allocated time slot. You will not be allowed entry if you are late for the booked timeslot.

Our verdict: For adults, this is a beautiful trip down memory lane of all our beloved childhood cartoons. And for kids, it’s just a whole lot of fun. That’s a win-win in our books. Our only gripe is the no-stroller rule. For those of us who have small children, strollers are a necessity. Considering that this is a very kid-oriented event, you’d expect to see strollers, in which case banning them is counterintuitive.

Celebrate Every Story with Warner Bros, until Aug 16, 4pm to midnight, An Nahdah, Jeddah 23614. SAR65 for general admission and tickets can be purchased here. Free entry for children two years old and below. @jed.calendar
