World’s first Angry Birds themed entertainment park opens in Doha
World’s first Angry Birds Entertainment Park marked its grand opening at Doha Festival City on April 25, welcoming guests into Qatar’s unique indoor and outdoor destination. Home to the world-famous Angry Birds flock, the 17,000 sq m nest brings a riot of fun for the whole family.
Following the launch of its indoor section last year, the park extends the same excitement to its enchanting outdoor section, as part of the second phase. New attractions include the 42 m high Super Slingshot themed around the classic bird-flinging gameplay that catapults guests more than 60 m into the air, offering a truly heart-pounding experience. The Red’s House offers sand play activities for little ones while the Raft Battle takes visitors on a voyage from the Bird Island to the Piggy Island in an interactive cinematic experience. For a hearty dose of thrill, guests can climb aboard the Angry Coaster or simply head to the park’s City Studio to experience wall climbing, parabolic slides, roller gliders and ropes course.
Once indoors, visitors can enjoy exhilarating rides or a laser tag battle. The park also boasts the world’s first indoor/outdoor karting track and The Big Tree – a multi-level creative playground offering a variety of edutainment workshops for little ones and exciting challenges such as ropes course and zip line. Visitors can keep the energy soaring at the Trampoline Universe, comprising a basketball court, foam pit and a kids’ court.
With family entertainment at the heart of its offerings, the park is rolling out a host of attractions that will engage and entertain one and all, including an array of F&B outlets with an exclusive Angry Birds themed menu in addition to private birthday rooms and official merchandise from the cluster of retail stores across the site.
Commenting on the opening of the Angry Birds World, Rashed AlQurese, Chief Marketing Officer, Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC) said, “We continue to deliver on the Next Chapter’s promise of enhancing the Qatar visitor experience and our private sector partners’ support in this regard is of high value to us. Urban and family-oriented entertainment is one of the six areas that we are focusing on the development of the tourism sector. We are pleased to see the Angry Birds World added to the list of Qatar’s unique visitor experiences. Such amazing indoor recreational facilities combined with our calendar of festivals will give tourists more reasons to visit Qatar throughout the year.”
Ali Bin Mohamed Bin Khalifa Al-Attia, Deputy CEO of Leisure, owner of Trimoo Parks – the company operating the entertainment park commented, “We are extremely delighted to open our doors to a first-of-its-kind indoor-outdoor destination. Visitors can enjoy a uniquely immersive experience that will delight the whole family – children and adults alike.”
“The Angry Birds celebrate their 10-year anniversary this year, but our work has just begun in terms of expanding the brand’s footprint and establishing multiple touch points with our fans worldwide,” said Simo Hämäläinen, Head of Brand Licensing at Rovio Entertainment. “Angry Birds World is a fantastic ‘fun for the whole family’ attraction that shows the mass appeal of the Angry Birds brand and the joy it brings to people of all ages.”
