Velocity World is a new play area in B.Square Mall, marketed as the only entertainment-based mall in Qatar.
Located in Al Thumama, just off F-Ring Road, B.Square Mall is a fair drive from West Bay, Al Waab and other residential areas, but it’s worth the journey if you’re looking for an uncrowded, quieter play area with activities for all ages. When we visited on a Thursday afternoon, there were only a couple of other children in the soft play areas on the ground floor, and we had the gaming area, with fairground rides on the first floor, to ourselves.
There are two ways to enter Velocity World: from the ground floor next to the soft play area or through the arcade on the first floor.
You could combine a visit to Velocity with a trip to the bowling alley, mini ice rink or cinema at the mall. There are also plenty of shops and food outlets nearby. Java U is particularly convenient, as it’s located on the ground floor, near the soft play and toy shop. The café serves savoury snacks, salads, hot drinks, smoothies, cakes and pastries.
The Velocity snack bar in the gaming area upstairs serves popcorn, sweets and soft drinks. Check out Eli France and The Chemist Café for a more relaxed dining experience. There’s also a SPAR supermarket at the other end of the mall if you need to grab groceries on your way out.
