Chills and Thrills at Qatar's First Indoor Snow Park
Sponsored by Qatar National Tourism Council
Fun so cool it'll literally give you the chills.
There's a new way to beat the heat this summer that's it's better than pools, ice cream and full-blast air conditioning. It's Qatar's very own indoor snow park at Doha Festival City!
Inspired by a local folklore tale where a cold wave in spring blankets the land in snow, Snow Dunes features a fantastical Arabian-style castle covered in snow. The magical environment is created by 17 snow machines located on the ceiling which produce snow at -4 degrees Celcius.
The 9,500-square-meter park encompasses a variety of rides and attractions suitable for the whole family. There are five main attractions: the main slope, a carousel, and three slides including the Dune Dash slide that reaches speeds of 50km per hour. The kids' slope is 20 meters long and the adult slope is 55 meters long.
Don't worry if you don't have your own cold-weather attire. Snow Dunes offers 5,000 pieces of snow gear for visitors. There are also two travelators to help you with the trek to the top of the slopes. Entry starts at
The park also features various food and beverages outlets, a retail store, and birthday and VIP rooms.
