Entertainment City, a hallmark of 'Summer in Qatar', welcomed nearly 60,000 visitors over the course of a month during which it delighted children and adults alike, the organisers said Monday.
Running from June 4 to July 13, the summer staple was shorter than in previous years and the stations included activities for a range of ages and interests.
A vast ocean ball, QSports Bounce Kingdom, and a Kids’ Driving School, combined with an Inflatable Zone and Mobile Trampoline Park, kept toddlers and children entertained. A mini golf course featuring famous global landmarks, ice skating and a child-friendly bull ride, as well as rides kept children of all sizes busy, while others tested their chops at various skills games, played in the retro arcade corner, or entered new worlds at the e-gaming and Virtual Reality (VR) City, according to a press statement by Qatar National Tourism Council (QNTC).
Sports aficionados were able to kick back and relax in front of giant screens which showed the ICC Cricket World Cup in England.
Entertainment City is part of the 'Summer in Qatar' programme curated by QNTC and its 30+ partners from the public and private sectors for residents and visitors to enjoy the season’s fun and festivities.
The programme contains a wide range of activities for people of all ages and interests. These include "family-friendly entertainment shows, music concerts and comedy performances by top international artistes, summer camps for children and youth, thrilling experiences and sporting tournaments in addition to exciting travel, hospitality and retail promotions" running until August 16, the statement adds.
