I had the opportunity to visit Adhari Park (http://www.adharipark.com.bh/english/index.html) in Manama, Bahrain after working constantly for 12+ hours 7 days a week for 3 weeks (plus the occasion belly dancers, filipino live bands, alcohol in the Middle East, and lack of sleep). With a 10 Dinar rental car and a handheld GPS, I ventured off toward Adhari Park getting lost a bit at the many chock full intersections. Since it was a Tuesday (equivalent to a Wednesday in the States), it was not very busy but it was a nice sunny day and not to too hot compared to the combination of sandstorm, rain (mud), wind and monsoon-like weather from previous days. I did not take photos of many patrons (there weren't any) due to my “force protection” training. The kids seem to be very excited, running around, screaming and laughing aloud. Anyway, a very clean park with beautiful landscape and cheap to enjoy a quick hour or two: 500 fils to enter, and pay per ride with the roller coaster at 1 Dinar ($2.70 USD). The park's Tagada was out for maintenance but there were other flat rides operational, including a Disk O and a monorail.
Nice trip report and photos, and the park looks really nice. It looks pretty small, but the theming and landscaping look better than a lot of American parks. The only problem I see with the park is that some areas look to have a severe lack of shade, but even with that, this still appears to be one of if not the nicest park in the Middle East.
^ Great POV. The first time I rode Himalaya, I sat on the end with 3 other kids and we spun constantly, especially after one of the brake runs.
^^ I agree with the lack of shade. I'm surprise the park was opened in the middle of the day on my visit. According to the park's website, they are opened during the afternoon and evenings during the summer time, all day for weekends (which is on Friday's & Saturday's).
^^^ It seems pretty new according to RCDB.com and my observation. I did not venture to the other Bahrain parks to compare to this park due to lack of time or restricted "liberty" venue (aka Bahrain Mall).
