Whenever I think of parks or playlands for kids I think of circuses or county fairs or even Disneyland - outside, dusty paths, lots of crowds, popcorn and junk food. Well...in the Middle East, outdoor playgrounds aren't quite so popular - only comfortable for a few months out of the year - they really wouldn't draw as many visitors during the summer. Especially parks that have lots of permanent rides. So... to meet the need for parents to take their children to parks, they moved them...indoors. Granted, each one is not as large as what you would find on acres of land, however, the intricacies and weaving of the different rides would rival anything the Japanese would produce in so little space. Many of the malls here have indoor play lands for the kids to enjoy, and parents to spend money. Most of them, of course, offer birthday party specials!
The pictures aren't great (from my iphone) but you get an idea of what it's like. It'll be interesting to check it out when it's completed.
