With more than 40 rides in total at each Amerat Park and Naseem Gardens, the Muscat Festival is 1 of the loved events in Oman particularly when it comes to kids. Besides the entertaining rides, the festival also has a assortment of entertainment shows and cartoon characters that are sufficient to engage the interest of kids of all age groups.
Indian expatriate, Sachin Sha stated that it is a challenge to maintain kids engaged in a entertaining and inventive way typically but not at the festival. “Amerat Park has many rides and games at affordable prices that are enough to keep my children engaged. Among the many entertaining options, one of the most sought after is the Big Bubble. My children simply love it as it involves playing in water and rolling on and off. We are happy that it is safe,” stated Sha.
Some of the other rides that are a hit with the kids are bumper vehicles and merry go round. Salim al Balushi, a father to two kids, thinks the festival is his way of obtaining his kids closer to traditions. “I love the Muscat Festival because along with enjoying the games it is also a chance for me to take my children to the traditional village where they get to see the old way of life. I also make them taste authentic Omani food, especially the halwa.”
For homemaker Jasmine D’Souza the festival provides the ideal bowl of entertainment and culture. “I like to visit the traditional village, but my children get bored with such things and prefer the fun rides section. They want to spend time at the Bubble game area, so that I and my husband can enjoy the way we want.”
