Qatar’s largest water park is officially open for the season starting today.
The Aqua Park, located down Salwa Road, has several offerings for adults and children, including a wave pool, lazy river, “Jacuzzi Cave,” lagoon pool, tube slides and an “African Village” for small kids.
To woo visitors, the park is taking a different approach this year by dropping prices instead of raising them.
Last year, it sparked anger after increasing rates. Adults were charged up to QR180 at the door (and QR130 per child over 90cm tall).
However, this year the rate has fallen to QR120 per adult whether buying online or in person, and QR100 per child.
The rate for special needs guests and domestic workers is the same as last year, QR70/person.
Meanwhile, the cost of popular attractions such as Stingray surfing and a “Space boat” remain QR50/person.
Something else visitors may notice this year is that Aqua Park has done away with ladies days, which used to be every Tuesday.
Instead, it is emphasizing its family days, which are Saturdays from 10am until 8pm.
The park is closed on Mondays and open from noon to 8pm on Sunday, Tuesday and Wednesdays. It’s open from noon to 10pm on Thursdays and 10am to 10pm on Fridays.
Regarding the dress code, Aqua Park recommends (but does not require) swimwear that respects Qatar’s tradition and culture, officials previously told Doha News.
More information about Aqua Park can be found on its website.
