KidzMondo Doha celebrates Ramadan with indoor theme park

The Peninsula

KidzMondo Doha, Qatar’s one-of-a-kind edutainment city, celebrates the holy month of Ramadan for the first time by offering visitors unprecedented experiences upon their visit to the 'Kid-sized' city.

The indoor theme park will grant families and visitors the opportunity to celebrate the season of generosity and togetherness with special engagements for children, along with several entertaining activities; Saturdays to Thursdays from 9:00 AM till 1:00 PM and from 8:00 PM till 12:00 AM, and on Fridays from 8:00 PM till 12:00 AM.

At the heart of its innovative concept, KidzMondo unlocks the gate to creativity for children who dress up and ‘Live the Role’ through an array of fun and educative activities, and in the spirit of Ramadan, kidizens will have the opportunity to learn about doing ‘Sadaqa’ – donation – as part of KidzMondo Doha’s initiative in cooperation with Qatar Charity, Tayf and Jouf water which will encourage children to be more involved in corporate social responsibility initiatives. To further encourage the kids to ‘Live the Spirit’, a story-teller — ‘Hakawati’ — will bring the children to gather round and listen to special anecdotes and mementos of traditional practices, educating them with the significance of the virtues surrounding Ramadan.

Another special on-ground engagement will be the presence of the Ramadan ‘Mesaharati’ – who will take a walk around the indoor theme park, beating his drum in honour of the traditional drummer that walks the streets before dawn to wake those that are sleeping, in order to have a small meal before fasting resumes. Commenting on the occasion, Eman Baker Abu El Hawa, KidzMondo Doha’s General Manager, said: “KidzMondo Doha welcomes it’s first-ever Ramadan, and with that an exciting range of Ramadan inspired activities for our Kidizens. Youngsters will enjoy getting involved in the celebration of the holy month by creating Ramadan lanterns and gift boxes, get a taste of Ramadan Arabic sweets and cookies, as well as being treated to traditional folkloric Ramadan stories that will further perpetuate the spirit of the season.”

She added: The various activities at our kid-sized city promote the spirit of togetherness and provides our visitors memorable experiences that will nurture the values of Ramadan. As we get ready for Ramadan, we gear up for a purposeful time for children and their families, who will benefit from the plentitude of adventures awaiting them at our indoor theme park. We are positive that the time spent at KidzMondo Doha will not only impart knowledge and teach them valuable skills, but will also give them a richness of experiences that would remain with them as they grow to become tomorrow’s leaders, policy makers, creative artists and honourable citizens”.
