Inside the huge indoor theme park with 30 rides and record-breaking rollercoasters | The Sun
A HUGE new indoor theme park has opened – and it has two record-breaking rollercoasters.
Doha Quest in Qatar is a 32,000sqm attraction which opened last year, with the entire park built inside.
The theme park has three different zones – Oryxville represents the Arabian past and calls itself the "forgotten land with ancient ruins, spellbinding wonders, and adventures around every corner".
The City of Imagination focuses on travelling through "space and time", exploring what is happening now and could happen in the future.
And Gravity, a futuristic land, lets guests on on "out-of-this-world galactical missions" from its space-port.
Heiko Engels, vice president of operations for MR-Pro Fun at the Doha Oasis project, told Blooloop: "Each of the zones reflects one timezone: the past, the present, and the future.
