The Organizing Committee of the Doha Summer Fun Park has announced that family-only hours will be designated on Thursdays and Fridays from 3pm until 9pm.  All visitors are welcome after 9pm until closing on the weekends.  The new schedule will be implemented starting Thursday, 5 August.

The number of visitors to the Doha Summer Fun Park, up until yesterday, exceeds 75,000. The large turnout of families on the weekend has led to visitors requesting for family times, therefore, the Organizing Committee has changed the opening times to allow for family hours.

“We have seen high numbers of visitors come to the Doha Summer Fun Park since opening – over 75,000” said Mr. Ahmed Al Nuaimi, Chairman of Qatar Tourism Authority.  “We want everyone who visits to have a pleasurable and fun experience.   To ensure the Doha Summer Fun Park continues to be family orientated, we have organized for Thursdays and Fridays to be family days between the hours of 3pm and 9pm.”

In the next week, the number of visitors is expected to increase as families return to Qatar from their summer holidays in time for the Holy month of Ramadan.  The Organizing Committee has undertaken extensive preparations and planned unique and exciting activities in preparation for the Holy month. There will be events on cultural folklore and performances by various Arab and Gulf bands as well as a host of activities and games for children. The program of the special Ramadan events and activities will be announced at the beginning of next week.

Organized by QTA and produced by SEQLIA Organizing & Building Exhibitions & Conferences Company, Doha Summer Fun Park is open to families and visitors from the GCC region. Doha Summer Fun Park welcomes fun-seekers from 3pm to midnight from Saturday to Wednesday and from 3pm to 1am on Thursdays and Fridays, with family hours from 3pm – 9pm on Thursdays and Fridays. Hours during Ramadan will be from 8pm to 2am and during Eid Al Fitr from noon to midnight.  Entry is free for all.
