Aqua Park Qatar, the country’s first water theme park off Salwa International Road, will have a soft opening this evening. The newest attraction in Qatar is managed by a Kuwait-based firm which has been managing water theme parks for 15 years across the Gulf. Mohammed Khurshid, General Manager of Aqua Park Kuwait said the water theme park was the first of its kind in Qatar and “we are delighted to have been selected by developer Hala Group Enterprises to manage this tourist attraction,” he said. He added that the park will be operated and managed according to the best practices and highest safety standards in maintaining the cleanliness of water with the assistance of Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa). Qatar Red Crescent is also assisting the park, having provided a complete set of medical equipment. Aqua Park Qatar, with a capacity of over 3,000 visitors, is located in the Abu Nakhla area, approximately 15km from the Industrial Area flyover on Salwa Road. The park boasts a variety of services such as kiosks and cafés and also features a “wave pool” and a variety of slides 14 to 20 metres high as well as a “lazy river.” The first phase of Aqua Park Qatar covers 50,000 square metres. Its parking area can accommodate some 400 cars.
