KidzMondo Doha, a one-of-a-kind children’s theme park at Mall of Qatar, expects to see an increase in visitors as Ramadan and summer break near with upcoming campaigns and opening of more establishments.
Regarded as the "city of education and entertainment," KidzMondo Doha features an interactive kid-sized city developed for and managed by children, between the ages 2 and 14. Covering an 8000sqm area, the self-sufficient city comprises over 80 real-life simulation activities across 63 unique establishments allowing children to dress up and role-play realistic tasks.
“KidzMondo Doha is a replica of real life as a miniature city with 63 unique establishments, 43 of which are already open. We expect the rest of the establishments to open in the next three to six months,” Eman Baker Abu El Hawa (pictured), General Manager of KidzMondo Doha, told The Peninsula recently.
Two of the soon-to-open establishments will be a big surprise to the Doha community, she stressed.
While KidzMondo has already established presence in several countries, KidzMondo Doha is unique in itself with activities catered especially to children here as Qatar-based companies set up their own zones in the city such as Qatar Airways and Ooredoo which launched their own establishments very recently.
As Ramadan and summer break approach, the theme park expects to witness more visitors not only because many prefer indoor entertainment during summer months, but due to a number of campaigns to be launched soon.
“We do have Ramadan and summer campaigns. During Ramadan, we are organising Garangao and lots of other activities such as summer camp, Corporate Social Responsibility activities and charities, that’s why we expect the number of attendees to increase,” said El Hawa.
Since its opening, KidzMondo has seen children flocking to its various activities which support their social, artistic, creative and cognitive development to help them become well-versed individuals in preparation for the professional world of adults.
“KidzMondo Doha offers a different experience to children in Qatar so the response has been very encouraging since we opened. The children really like engaging in the activities,” she said, adding they also cater to schools.
“We are receiving more than five schools per day and around 300 to 550 children on a daily basis, which means we are doing a great job in Doha. We are looking forward to covering all schools and responding to all tastes of children with our activities,” said El Hawa.
