There’s already so much to look forward to about the upcoming launch of Abu Dhabi’s new leisure and entertainment district, Al Qana.

We’ve uncovered advanced details about a blockbusting 15-screen cinema, a giant aquarium and a comprehensive wellness hub, and now we have some exciting news about the VR and gaming centre, Pixel, set to launch in 2021.

Pixel will be the largest gaming hub of its type in Abu Dhab and include the latest evolution of Location-Based Entertainment (LBE).

In addition to futuristic VR tech, the venue will also operate the first certified eSports (that’s competitive gaming for any noobs out there) academy in the region.

The announcement of Pixel’s inclusion in the Al Qana development followed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between Fouad Mashal, CEO of Al Barakah International Investment and developer of Al Qana, and Karim Ibrahim, CEO of Robocom VR.

Speaking about the news, Fouad Mashal said: “In line with our vision to bring world-class experience to Al Qana, our partnership with Robocom VR will position Pixel as one of the most sought-after VR and eSports destinations in the UAE.”
