Oman's biggest indoor theme park to open in 2017

MUSCAT, March 30, 2015

Majarat Oman, the Sultanate's biggest indoor theme park being built in the premises of the Al Sawadi Beach Resort, is planning a soft opening in 2017.

The promoters of the theme park organised a major event to unveil the project in front of a high-profile audience and media, said a report in the Times of Oman.

Majarat Oman, which is just 45 minutes by road from Muscat, will be able to accommodate 2,500 to 3,000 visitors a day, it said.

The theme park is a futuristic, alien themed, indoor park, which offers a classic mix of all entertainment elements that a family is looking for, making Majarat Oman a complete family destination from the age group of three to 93.

The project would create 300 job opportunities for Omanis as well as generate huge business opportunities.

With an envisaged built-up area of 25,000-sq-m, the theme park will have a capital expenditure of $120 million and construction will start by the third quarter of this year, the report said.

Sanderson group, the world renowned Australian theme park consultant, will pick up 51 per cent equity stake in Majarat Oman, it said.   

Majarat Oman is the first undertaking by Arab Malaysia Development Company, which was established in 2011. The theme park is the company’s first project in Oman, and will be developed by Amusement Cities, a special purpose vehicle (SPV) formed by Arab Malaysia Development Company.
