Among these is Formula Rossa, the fastest roller coaster in the world. In addition, the theme park also features interactive shopping and authentic Italian dining experience. 

 

Louvre Museum

The Louvre Abu Dhabi is the result of the collaboration between the city and the French government.

Located on the Saadiyat Island Cultural District, this art and civilization museum features its own collections and those that have been loaned by the Agence France-Museums and the Musee de Louvre.

While it does bear the name Louvre, it is in no way a copy of the museum in France. It offers its own interpretation of universal history that reflects the era and the traditions of the UAE.

In its collection are works from just about every medium, including sculpture, paintings, and even photography. 

 

Warner Brothers

It is the third Warner Brothers theme park, and it features six themed lands: Bedrock, Cartoon Junction, Dynamite Gulch, Gotham City, Metropolis, and Warner Brothers Plaza.

This is one of the few mosques in the region that opens its doors to non-Muslims to have a tour of this magnificent mosque. And it's not a structure you should miss either.

It can be seen from each of the bridges that connects Abu Dhabi to the mainland.

The sight is truly stunning: its 80 marble domes are enough to make your jaw drop. It truly a masterpiece and a must-see.
