Qatar’s largest water park has officially opened for the season.
The venue, located down Salwa Road, has several offerings for adults and children, including a wave pool, lazy river, “Jacuzzi Cave,” lagoon pool, tube slides, speed slides and a “Space Boat.”
On Friday morning, the rainy, cloudy weather appeared to be putting most of the crowds off, though higher turnout is expected as the skies clear up today.
The park is open from 10am to 8pm from Sunday to Wednesday; 10am to 10pm on Thursdays and Fridays; and 10am to 8pm on Saturdays (family only days).
Ladies-only days are on Tuesdays and will begin on April 12, running from 3pm to 11pm.
Ticket prices have increased to QR180 at the counter (compared to QR150 previously), or QR155 online for those 120cm in height or above. They are QR130 at the counter for those between 90-120cm, and QR105 online.
Some complained about the increase, saying it was unjustified. But others said that they used their Entertainer vouchers to get a 2-for-1 deal.
Regarding the dress code, Aqua Park recommends (but does not require) swimwear that respects Qatar’s tradition and culture, a spokesman said.
To buy tickets or for more information about the park, here’s the official website.
