Huge waterpark to be built in Qetaifan Island North


A huge waterpark is set to be built in Qetaifan Island North, with the attraction set to open in the first quarter of 2022.

Qetaifan Projects signed a deal with WhiteWater West to build the park last year, and now Sarner International has been awarded a contract to create an edutainment ride exploring the history of oil in Qatar.





The water park will cover 137,000 sq m and have 21 rides, including the Icon Tower – which is set to become the highest water slide in the world at 80 m tall.

Each of the rides are inspired by Qatari culture, and fit into an overarching theme about the oil and gas industry in the Gulf state.

The edutainment ride will explain the oil production process in detail, from how it’s formed to how it’s used, as well as the history of its discovery in Qatar.

Sheikh Nasser bin Abdulaziz al-Thani, head of the Business Development Department at Qetaifan Projects, told Gulf Times, “There is no doubt that adding an edutainment ride introducing visitors to the history of Qatar would work to attract the largest number of tourists of different age groups, especially those interested in exploring different cultures.

“There will be regular school trips and more local partnerships with bodies and institutions interested in art and culture.

“This co-operation comes within a series of local and global partnerships that will prepare to host the 2022 World Cup and serve Qatar Vision 2030, especially since we at Qetaifan Projects are working to position Qetaifan Island North as a modern entertainment destination that provides a unique experience and actively contributes to providing sustainable solutions that serve tourism and hospitality.”



The water park is part of a larger project in Lusail City which will see a four-star hotel, residential complexes and a retail plaza also built.
