Entertainment City opens up for thrill-seekers this year

The Entertainment City, which is the centrepiece of family attraction during the Qatar Summer Festival (QSF), yesterday drew an impressive visitor line-up for its interactive games and other attractions.

Among the unique offerings this year are, offering a fun-filled experience for families and children seeking adventure. The first set of thrill-seekers even had the opportunity to try the world’s largest inflatable obstacle course as QSports claim, apart from XTork Extreme Rebels section for skateboarders and BMX riders.

For the first time since its inception four years ago, the city brings a zip line, basketball competition and paintball arena to engage visitors in sporting activities. This concept is much appreciated as it promotes a healthy and active lifestyle, and makes sure that children play and move more often, which is good for them, said S Ferman, an expatriate, who is a regular to the Entertainment City every year.

He revealed that he also wishes to try the paintball shooting range and the arena with his colleagues in the coming days.

Various children’s rides and games including the bumper tales, fun clown, animal carts, and kids’ crane were a super hit, so far. The Entertainment City features 87 games, including arcade games, virtual reality games, toddler games, skill and active games, sport competitions, shooting range, tech hub, Timba Cars and Bicklyn Lego.

The Qatar Tourism Authority said that the City forms part of efforts by QSF to showcase Qatar’s unique urban and family entertainment offerings. The festival will continue for more than two months until 5th September.

Meanwhile, the participating malls across Qatar have begun offering discounts and special promotions to shoppers.
