World’s tallest indoor coaster ride opens in Qatar

World’s tallest indoor coaster ride opens in Qatar
September 30, 2021

Indoor experiential theme park, Quest - located inside the Doha Oasis, Qatar - has announced the completion and soft opening of Epiq, the World’s Tallest Indoor Coaster. Supplied by Premier Rides, Epiq is also the world’s first launch coaster with a fully integrated projection mapping tunnel to truly immerse riders into the story.  Epiq offers riders an unparalleled augmented reality and coaster experience, complete with special effects, audio/visual and show lighting, and nonstop thrills. 

The much anticipated, highly-themed, special effects coaster will be the signature attraction of the indoor theme with the Doha Oasis team planning to have the Coaster’s height certified by Guinness World Records.

The Doha Oasis offers a luxurious mixed-use development in Qatar that includes a 5-star hotel and residences, a prestigious French fashion department store, cutting-edge cinema, and Qatar’s first indoor theme park.

Quest theme park is a 32,000 square metre story-based concept with a three-dimensional timeline-the past, present, and future. Through the City of Imagination, Oryxville, and Gravity, guests can experience the recent cityscape, ancient Arabian past, and futuristic Space Age. Epic is aptly located in Gravity, a state-of-the-art bright and bold future, themed as a sci-fi spaceport.  Riders are fully immersed in the story and are thrilled to test drive a “revolutionary solar-driven vessel” endorsed by Spike, a fun loving, space-faring hedgehog who loves exploring the far corners of the galaxy in his sleek interstellar spaceship while showing off his zero-G expertise with his solar-powered jetpack.

The exciting launch coaster features the world’s fastest reverse launch up an awe-inspiring, 60+ metre tall, twisted vertical spike, taking riders high above the park – all while maintaining the comfort of the air-conditioned indoor park. As riders drop back down, they are launched at a heart-racing speed as they enjoy their Epiq journey. During the soft opening, guests and employees alike have proclaimed Epiq to clearly be the signature attraction of the Doha Oasis experience.

Premier Rides is best known for its high-tech magnetic launch roller coasters.  The company is also a global supplier of traditional roller coasters, special effect dark rides and custom designed attractions. 

Commenting on the opening of Epiq, Jim Seay, President of Premier Rides advised “we are extremely proud to have supplied this innovative and unique attraction to quest theme park at Doha Oasis.  We are honoured to be a part of Halul Real Estate Investment Company’s formula for success by delivering this one-of-a-kind, record-breaking coaster that is sure to be a must-see attraction. Guests will be impressed by the sophisticated state-of-the-art technologies applied to this augmented reality attraction.

“Epiq was technically one of the most complex rides to design due to the architectural considerations such as the massive supports for the 27,000 square meter overhead roof garden.  Our technical team worked hard to ensure that the attraction was a perfect integration of dark ride and ultimate thrill ride.”

The Quest theme park is currently open Tuesday to Sunday, 3pm to 10pm during the soft opening period. The Park has a pay-one-price policy for all guests to enjoy all rides, attractions, and entertainment programs. The Park offers time portal, a ‘Fast Pass’ ticket that allows you to skip long waiting lines by granting you fast access to select quest rides and attractions.

Quest is a 32,000 square metre indoor experiential theme park located within Doha Oasis Mixed-Use Development in Msheireb. Quest has more than 30 rides and attractions, featuring a mix of adrenaline-heavy thrill rides, media-controlled simulators, virtual reality experiences, and family-friendly attractions, all offering an experience unlike any other in Doha.
