    Here are some photos of the coaster and area of the coaster.
    Visually not much has changed since November, however I was told that the spinning coaster is testing daily, before the park opens.

    From a quick chat, I was told they want people to not use the stairs so they don't run into problems with their cardio.

    Remember, this is 85 meters of stairs in the Qatar desert sun.

    So when visiting, get ready for riding lifts and wait for the lifts to arrive.

    Also, I advise against visiting the park solo. You won't be able to ride most raft slides, as it is nearly impossible to find any other solo riders (with only 100+ people in the entire park).
    Thanks for all the information. Luckily I'm going with my wife and there will be 2 of us to ride on everything.

    Are many attractions closed during the day? Does the roller coaster have an opening date?

    We look forward to your photos!

    Enjoy!

    Do you know if going up to the Icon Tower is always by elevator? There are stairs?
