THAT World Cup started this week, and the eyes of the world turned to Qatar, host of the 2022 football world cup. Apart from modern stadiums to host matches, the country is carrying out a series of works to receive the thousands of tourists expected during the competition. But not everything is ready in time. This is the case of the water park Maryal Waterpark🇧🇷

As pointed out by Sun, this attraction is located in North Qtaifan Island. The hope is that this place will become one of the entertainment options in the city.

The centerpiece of the park, a tower nearly 80 meters high, called “The Icon”, is twice the height of Christ the Redeemer (38 meters). The attraction, upon completion, is expected to feature the world’s tallest waterslide. To reach the top of the structure, visitors will use the elevator.

This project is being developed by the Canadian company WhiteWater West. “In addition to breaking the world record for the tallest waterslide, Icon Tower will also feature the most waterslides in a single tower,” the company said, according to Sun🇧🇷

According to local media, the complex, located about five kilometers from the Lusail Stadium, will have a capacity of up to 50,000 visitors daily during the World Cup.

Although work is still ongoing, the park plans to open its doors to visitors during November and December, according to the site. When everything is finished, it is expected that Lusail will have an amusement park, a lagoon, two marinas, two golf courses, 22 hotels, in addition to a luxury mall and a commercial area.

Workers are now in a race against time to try to complete the project before the championship final, which is scheduled for December 18. Meanwhile, the country has been the target of criticism over the working conditions of those involved in its work for the World Cup.

It is estimated that the country will receive over one million fans over the course of the tournament.
