Quest indoor theme park in Qatar has announced the completion and soft opening of a new dark ride named Epiq, the world’s tallest indoor coaster.
Quest is located inside a five-star hotel at the Doha Oasis, a luxury mixed-use development in Qatar. The development is home to a cutting-edge cinema, a prestigious French fashion department and residences.
Epiq is highly themed and boasts special effects. It can be found in the Gravity area of the theme park, which is themed as a sci-fi spaceport. It is the world’s first launch coaster with a fully integrated projection mapping tunnel to immerse riders into a story of augmented reality. Special effects and audio/visual show lighting add to the excitement of the ride.
With a 60-metre-tall twisted vertical spike, Epiq takes riders high above the park and features the fastest reverse launch in the world.
Epiq was designed by Premier Rides. Jim Seay, Premier Rides’ president, commented in its launch: “We are extremely proud to have supplied this innovative and unique attraction to quest theme park at Doha Oasis. We are honored 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.”
