In der Hauptstadt von Katar soll für 300 Mio. $ ein Indoor-Freizeitpark entstehen!

International Theme Park Services Inc. (ITPS), ein Unternehmen aus Ohio wurde mit der Planung beauftragt. Das Gebäude hat eine Innenfläche von 2,8 Hektar. Bei den dortigen Außenbedingungen (50°C und Sandstürme) wird schon der Bau der Halle zu einer Herausforderung!

Die Hauptattraktion wird eine Achterbahn mit Rückwärtslaunch:

One in particular they are proud of will be called Dragonfire, a roller coaster that will launch backwards out of the station and up “hundreds of feet” before gravity brings them back down through the mouth of a Dragon and into a series of twists and inversions, including a corkscrew that will break through the roof of the building.

Baltimore, MD – Premier Rides has been selected by the Halul Real Estate Investment Company to design and build the signature attraction for the new Adventure Island in the Doha Oasis Mall. The highly-themed custom high-thrill indoor/outdoor dark ride launch roller coaster will be located in Doha, Qatar.

Jim Seay, President of Premier Rides noted, “Qatar is one of the most exciting places to be in the world right now. The development is unprecedented and combined with the preparations for the 2022 World Cup, there is a tremendous amount of energy in the country. We are extremely honored to be part of what is happening there. The magnitude of the Doha Oasis Mall project is quite stunning. One has to be there to see and appreciate the amazing scale.”

International Theme Park Services Inc. (ITPS), based in Ohio, is the lead consultant on the $300 million Adventure Island where the signature dark ride launch coaster will be installed. ITPS has consulted on and constructed more than 500 amusement parks in about 50 countries.

Named Dragonfire, it will be one of the largest and most sophisticated attractions ever built by Premier Rides, and will incorporate Premier’s award-winning technologies such as magnetic launches, high speed switches, and multi-directional movement of the vehicles. Additionally the attraction features a backwards launch unlike any other where riders are shot up an extremely high vertical twisting spike that rises dramatically above the mall and is fully encapsulated to allow guests to take in the view and to appreciate just how high above the building they are while remaining in a climate-controlled environment.

Seay commented, “Halul has brought together the theme park industry’s “best of the best” to design and manage the Mall’s entertainment element. Premier’s engineers have worked with the ITPS design team for almost a year to create together a stunning attraction that complements the scale of the Mall and the desire for a world class attraction experience.”

“This is one of the largest, most complex, complicated projects we’ve ever worked on,” Dennis Speigel, President of ITPS shared. “It will be a seven-acre indoor theme park along the lines of a Mall of America. It’s all state-of-the-art equipment, the latest and greatest.”

“The entertainment component of the complex will be first class,” stated Hasan Abu Rub, Project Director for Halul Real Estate Investment Company. “We wanted a signature ride that would have a global impact and we are pleased to partner with Premier Rides on Dragonfire. Premier’s innovation and quality is evident in their work for other clients such as Universal Studios and together we will create for our valued visitors a one-of-a-kind world-class attraction.”

Seay added, “We are honored to be a part of Halul’s formula for success by supplying this unique attraction that combines an exciting dark ride experience with a high-thrill coaster that is sure to be a crowd pleaser! Dragonfire will incorporate the latest in magnetic launch technology combined with a cutting-edge track design, complete with a backward launch up a “spike” outside the building, giving riders a birds-eye view of the area before dropping back down the spike. This signature attraction will be a phenomenal thrill ride.”

Located in Qatar, the Doha Oasis Mall project will consist of upscale retail shops, fine dining experiences and an indoor amusement park that will make the facility a landmark in the region. The project is slated to open in 2017.

Bei coastersandmore gibt es nun auch einen entsprechenden Absatz mit Infos zur Bahn:

coastersandmore.de schrieb:
Für 2017 entwickelt Premier Rides bereits einen Indoor Coaster für den neuen Adventure Island Freizeitpark in Doha. Die etwa 600 Meter lange Strecke des Dragon Coasters wird einen rückwärts absolvierten LSM Abschuss auf einen rund 50 Meter hohen Turm beinhalten, auf welchem die Passagiere für mehrere Sekunden Schwerelosigkeit geniessen können. Danach fällt der Zug vorwärts in die Tiefe und absolviert ein kompaktes Layout - Inversionen wie eine Korkenzieher Figur inklusive. Die Achterbahn wird durch einen Weiche realisiert: Der Zug fährt seinem Rundkurs folgend über das Weichenelement, welches dann umgelegt wird und freie Rückwärtsfahrt in Richtung Turmstruktur ermöglicht - diese nimmt die Position eines toten Endes ein.

Ein neuer Park in Island also! Die Bahn gört sich wirklich sehr kompakt an!

Edit: Wobei. -- Full Throttle hat auch nur 691m!

Interessant, dass mal wieder jemand diesen Thread hier nach oben holt, hat man ja schon länger nichts mehr von gehört!

Über den Bau des Parks habe ich leider nichts aktuelles gefunden :(

Der Park wird ein Teil der gerade im Bau befindlichen "Oasis Mall" in Doha, auch dazu findet man recht wenig, kann aber auf dem Satellitenbild von Google Earth (von Ende April) erkennen, dass fleißig an der Mall gebaut wird!

Das hat Premier Rides in einer Pressemitteilung veröffentlicht:

Pressemitteilung Premier Rides schrieb:
An immersive dark-ride experience, a dramatic reverse magnetic launch through the roof of the building soaring to a height of nearly 60m, followed by a thrilling coaster experience is ready to become reality in Qatar’s capital city Doha as US-based roller coaster design and manufacturing firm Premier Rides’ first shipment of US fabricated steel roller coaster track for their newest one-of-a-kind signature magnetic launch coaster is shipping to Qatar.

Premier Rides has partnered with Qatar’s leading developer, Halul Real Estate Investment Company, to develop a cutting-edge product with an unforgettable experience for riders. The attraction will be part of Doha Oasis, a stunning mixed use development that offers a high end residential opportunity, a retail complex, an exclusive 7-star high-rise hotel tower and a world-class indoor theme park. With the engineering and fabrication processes for the ride now complete, both companies are delighted that the exporting process has officially begun. Premier estimates a total of approximately 100 shipments will be made over the next two months.

Jim Seay, President of Premier Rides commented, “We are extremely honored to be part of Halul Real Estate Investment Company’s vision for a world class development featuring a stunning, iconic 60m tall, fully-enclosed roller coaster tower that will allow riders a spectacular view of the city while remaining in a controlled climate setting. I am thrilled to see the first of many shipments of US steel ready to ship to what will certainly be the most amazing real estate development in Qatar.”

Seay continued, “Halul’s project will be a showcase in the run up to the 2022 World Cup and demonstrates their commitment to provide an unparalleled guest experience that is second to none.”

The attraction, with its closely-guarded, highly secret theme, will be the tallest and largest thrill ride in Qatar, and one of the tallest in all of the Middle East. It is a custom special-effects ride that combines an immersive dark ride, magnetic drive technology, high-speed switches and a highly dynamic ride experience into a multi-sensory thrill ride unlike any other attraction built to date.

“The entertainment component of the complex will be first-class,” stated Hasan Abu Rub, Project Director for Halul Real Estate Investment Company. “We wanted a signature ride that would have a global impact and we are pleased to partner with Premier Rides. Premier’s innovation and quality is evident in their work with other clients such as Revenge of the Mummy™ for Universal Studios. Together we will create for our valued visitors a one-of-a-kind world class attraction.”

Die anderen Achterbahnen sind meiner Meinung nach von Zierer. Die kleine türkise könnte ein Zierer Tivoli - Small sein und die andere ein ESC. Eine gespiegelte Kopie von Il Tempo Extra Giante.

Hier mal ein Vergleichsbilder von dem Video und der stehenden Bahn:

Il Tempo extra Gigante ist ja ein Klon von Force One im Schwabenpark und die Bahnen haben definitiv nicht das gleiche Layout wie die Bahn die hier entstehen soll. Obwohl mir so ein ESC auch lieber wäre als ein Vekoma Kiddie...

Der Park eröffnet erst 2018, wie aus diesem Zeitungsartikel hervorgeht:
MENAFN.COM schrieb:
One of the tallest roller coasters in the region will have its home in Doha, within the under-construction ‘Doha Oasis' which is situated adjacent to another important project - the Downtown Msheireb Project Phase III.
'Doha Oasis is one of the biggest landmarks coming up in the heart of Doha, This project demonstrates the continuing development of Qatar's property market, which is geared towards delivering the National 2030 Vision. This started in December 2015 and endeavours to be ready in the end of 2018. Seven million safety man-hours award has been earned for the high safety quality of the project, said an official seeking not to be attributed.
He further said that currently more than 5,000 labourers were working on the project.
This huge project comprises a hotel tower consisting of a 7 star-hotel designed to fit in the standalone ground floor plus 28-floor glass tower accommodating 133 guest suites, six restaurants on the lower floors and one sky view restaurant on the roof, a gymnasium including an indoor ool and a business centre.
'The sky with an operable glass roof providing shading and protection from the weather conditions. Two technical floors are located on top of the mezzanine level and between the 28th floor and the sky view restaurant, said the main contractor of Redco Construction-Al Mana.
The development encompasses the largest indoor theme park. The Theme Park occupies the Central Area of the Podium at the ground level and is covered by a steel dome ensuring a clear height of 18 metres, supporting the landscape garden, and is penetrated by skylights. The Theme Park expands into the peripheral areas of the Ground Floor level to accommodate a total of 26 or more different rides and attractions.
One of the tallest roller-coasters in the region will have its home in Doha. The 60m-high structure will be the centrepiece of the theme park. Cinemas will be installed for the sake of entertainment and a massive food court. The superstructure is erected on four underground basement levels.
