 Another exciting adventure awaits a Doha Festival City for entertainment with the launch of the Star Wars saga; The Rise of Skywalker activity for all kids to enjoy

Doha Festival City, Qatar’s one and only world-class shopping and entertainment destination, announced today a new exciting adventure for children to celebrate the global premier of the long-awaited family movie Star Wars; The Rise of the Skywalker.

Starting 12 December 2019 to 12 January 2020, the free of charge activation will be set up at the Centre Court, ground floor in Doha Festival City, bringing children and their families an exciting adventure, from 3pm to 10 pm daily. The event caters for age groups up to 12 although some zones are unsuitable for the under 6.

Admissions will be based on batches, with a maximum of 5 people per batch at each zone. Children must be registered to access the area, while Kids Club members will enjoy fast track access throughout the activity duration. Customers who would like to sign up their children for the Kids Club membership, may always do so via Doha Festival City website or by visiting the Customer Service desk on the first floor near Harvey Nichols.

Visitors and shoppers will experience Star Wars; The Rise of Skywalker by undertaking different tasks across 8 zones divided into Dark and Light sides, each of which contains different entertaining activities.

Participants will enter through the themed arch to enter the Star Wars station, where they will be given a card that will record their scores in upcoming activities. In zone 2, they will use a Blaster and hone their shooting skills using Nerf guns, and in Zone 3, they will enjoy a fascinating visual about the characters of the movie participants will be asked to focus, just like Rey from the movie, to raise a crate from the ground, in zone 4.

In Zone 5, participants will discover if they are on the dark or light side after entering their scores from the previous zones, and they will select a robe and a light saber for the next stage. With their gear on, visitors will pose for a photo opportunity in a scene with Rey to either battle the storm troopers or be one of them, creating a fantastic photo memento.

For Lego fans, Zone 7 will enable them to build their own Star Wars structure or masks, while the last and final area of the journey, will open a door to a world of Star Wars memorabilia and merchandise exclusive for the new movie release.



The event continues our series of unique entertainment activations for children and families in Festival City, giving shoppers unparalleled experiences as expected from their preferred entertainment and shopping destination in Qatar.


Robert Hall, General Manager, said, “Doha Festival City delights in bringing the best in fun and learning for our shoppers. Star Wars is a family favourite around the world, and we are very excited to introduce this unique experience. We are looking forward to the global premier and to welcoming the movie fans and lovers.
