@ Lirtain Re: Habtoorland: A Pleasant Surprise

Wow! I didn't know about this Lebanese jewel until now! This truly complements Beirut's azzure beaches! And, it's on-par with world-standards!

The park evokes this pleasant charm with its multi-themed areas. The park's finishings and thematic add-ons are beautifully made. It's probably the most aesthetically-designed park in the Middle-east.

Btw, what are the rides/attractions in this park? How many hectares does this park occupy? Do they have plans to expand sometime in the forseeable future.

***************************************************************

Thanks for the pics...and thanks, in advance, for your replies.

The area is 107000 square meters

I don't know about any expansion plans. You can check the rides at their website: http://www.habtoorland.com/index.php...tion=right.php

If I'm not mistaken, they had plans to expand the theme park. But after what happened during last summer, they canceled I suppose. Again, I read something like this in an article but not 100% sure.

I've been there last year, it was fine until the whole area blacked out. It was nice though but quiet small.

It is owned by Khalaf Al Habtoor, an Emirati businessman.
