Qatar’s largest theme park; Desert Falls Water and Adventure Park has recently opened a new adventure to add to its list of thrilling attractions. This is the family canyoning adventure course.

The canyoning attraction at the Desert Falls is the first man-made canyoning structure within the Middle East and the third of its kind in the world.

Unique in its design; this is the only attraction of its kind in the region which boasts 17 pools, 10 Slides, 16 cliff jumps and two rappelling positions connected by steep staircases and tunnels giving it a maze-like appearance.

With cliff jumps as high as 7.5 meters and pools ranging from depths of 1.5 meters to 6 meters this attraction definitely causes an adrenaline rush similar to what you would experience out in the natural canyons.

The Canyoning experience at the Desert Falls is divided into two different sections- the family canyoning and extreme canyoning.

For the phased opening, the family canyoning is now open with 6 pools with cliff jumps and slides for thrill-seekers and adventurers looking for unlimited excitement and fun!

The extreme canyoning, which will open at a later time comprises 11 deep pools connected to cliff jumps, steep slides and two rappelling stations.
