Angry Birds World opens in Qatar

The world’s first Angry Birds World entertainment park has opened its doors to residents and visitors to Qatar. Located in Qatar’s largest fashion, dining and entertainment destination, Doha Festival City, the 17,000 sq.m park comprises an indoor space of 6,500 sq.m.

The park also has an educational attraction, the Big Tree, intended for children to learn about science and express themselves creatively and musically. There is also the world’s first indoor and outdoor, multi-level karting track. An impressive 261 meters long, the track is modeled after “Angry Birds GO”. The tree also houses “Own the Sky”, a 106-metre zip line that allows participants to cut through the air at rip-roaring speeds. The main attractions include the Blast Bomb – a drop and twist tower that features free-fall motion from a height of 11 metres, and Red Alert where visitors are hurled into an exhilarating 360-degree spin. Visitors can also test their physical strength with “Fierce Flight” – an incredible ropes course challenge. The outdoor section of the park is set to open at an undisclosed later date.

“Our new world-class attraction based in Qatar is another clear demonstration of the global appeal of the Angry Birds brand. Rovio’s current licensing roadmap is strongest to date, bringing great new ways for our fans to enjoy Angry Birds. The brand’s future looks bright and is being spearheaded with the theatrical release of The Angry Birds Movie 2 in September 2019,” said Simo Hämäläinen, Senior Vice President, Brand Licensing at Rovio Entertainment.

Angry Birds World has one of the four major entertainment parks that are introduced by Trimoo, located along Al Shamal Road. Upon completion, the unique entertainment destination will be home to – Snow Dunes – the country’s first indoor snow park set in an ancient Arabian village; Virtuocity – the region’s first dedicated digital gaming and entertainment hub; and Juniverse – the world’s first city in space that aims to inspire and entertain children.
