Battle it out at this outdoor high-tech combat game in Ghantoot
iBattle will make you feel like you’re in a real-life video game…
Battle Park, the 500,000 square foot adventure park located in Ghantoot, has launched a new challenge that will have you feeling like you’re a star in your own video game. Priced at Dhs60 per game, iBattle is described as ‘an advanced, none-projectile, high-tech combat gaming system’, meaning it’s fun but also super safe.
The technology was developed by the military, initially used for training purposes, so you know it’s the real deal. Imagine going to spend the day paint balling with all your friends, with the same adrenaline rush but none of the bruises.
There’s eight different outdoor themed fields, so you can choose the type of game you want to immerse yourself in. Whether it’s taking on the Zombie Wars, the Urban Assault course, a Junkyard Raid or tackling a Desert Storm, players of all ages will feel the thrill of the life-like game.
Although there’s no paint to see if you’ve shot someone or been shot, the IR-signal technology will communicate with each player to keep them informed. You’ll also be able to wear your own clothes, with no need for overalls or protective armour.
Ziad El Kassir, Battle Park founder, said: “When the idea came to me to create iBattle I wanted to recreate the online gaming experience in the real world with real guns and a variety of fields to make every game you play different.”
