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.

"Our idea is to guide our guests from the past through the present and to the future of Qatar. The storytelling, rides and theming are rooted in the three zones."

Across the lands are 30 rides, including a number of record-breaking ones.

The EpiQ Coaster is the world’s tallest indoor rollercoaster a 197-foot twisted vertical spike and top speeds of 56mph while the Magma Blast is the tallest indoor drop tower ride in the world.

There are rides for younger guests too, with gentler experiences for kids between 4-years-old and 10-years-old.

You don't even need to leave if you get hungry, with snacks at the Space Cantina, Quest Cafe, Sarab Kiosk along with a Planet Hollywood Doha restaurant.

The theme park, which is in the huge Doha Oasis complex, is also next to the five-star hotel Banyan Tree so you won't have to go too far when you're done for the day.

With 66 suites and hundreds of rooms, the highlight of the hotel is the amazing scenes from the Vertigo restaurant, with  panoramic view of the Doha skyline.

Brits are expected to flock to Qatar next month, due to the World Cup 2022.

Taking place from November 20 to December 19, it is the first World Cup to be staged in the Middle East.

Final tickets are always gold dust and the cheapest face-value ticket for this year’s was £529 – rising up to an eye-watering £1,408.
