Doha Festival City Geek Weekend Activities (May 4-5 2018)

April just ended and welcome May! But still a month for us geeks and otakus as we enter May to celebrate Star Wars Day (May 4) and the Revenge of the Fifth (May 5)! That’s not all! There’s also another celebration for Cartoonists’ Day (May 5) and Free Comic Book Day (May 5). Yep. You heard it right, FREE Comic Book Day!

Fortunately, I finally got out of my bed and took initiative to tour around for a bit, even though I said “around”, I only went to Doha Festival City because I’ve read the ad in Instagram about FNAC’s activity for Avengers. Got curious and decided to check it out. Delightfully, I got more than I expected.

Q Sports Booth

I was looking for FNAC’s store and got lost in DFC. I’ve been to DFC for at least 4 times now and still I get lost, just shows how bad I am in navigation. Good thing for me I found this new booth in DFC by Q Sports!

The booth features VR Racing (QR 30) and a VR “Roller Coaster Ride” or MMOne VR (QR 60) for each session. Their attraction is open from late April this year until October! So grab your chance to try this Virtual Reality Experience yourself. You can only find them in Doha Festival City.

Unfortunately, the Roller Coaster VR is out of service and will be going under maintenance so it’s currently unavailable. But you can still try the VR Racing yourself and with your friends.

There’s also a VR Racing in Mirqab Mall inside HMV. I believe there is one, so if you find DFC a bit too far from your place, you can try going to Al Nasr instead.

 

FNAC (1st Floor, B8)

I went to visit fnac next since that’s the original plan and I got to see their photo booth of Avengers. You can take photos there with your family and friends and also check out those Avengers Merchandise in the right corner. Too bad for Spiderman Fans, there is no Spidey figure, but hey I like the Infinity Gauntlet any hows.

Their activities were from 5pm until 7pm in DFC, and don’t worry if you missed them today, you can still go tomorrow at their fnac branch inside Lagoona Mall from 4pm until 7pm!

 

GEEK NATION (Ground Floor, C1)

I went around DFC because I think they have more to offer in terms of Geek merchandise and items. They have Virgin Megastore, Lego, Gamers and more so I went one by one to check. Other than Avengers, which is the highlight of the month and probably some Star Wars for Star Wars Day, there’s nothing much to offer in the stores. Though I found some neat material, which I will be sharing in the next write-up for IACQ.

 

However! As I went to Geek Nation, I was not disappointed! They are celebrating FREE COMIC BOOK DAY for May 4th and 5th. Buy an item and you receive a Marvel Comic Book of your choice! (Just in case you’re wondering, I got a Super Mario Bag).

I am honestly satisfied with my weekend, though I just went out alone. Hopefully, there will be more to come. How about you? How did you celebrate your weekend? Let us know in the comments!

      Hi,
      We might write another article about DFC’s geek activities in the future, or other malls with the same attractions on weekends!

    First off I would like to say grewat blog! I had a quick question that I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yoursekf and clear your mind prior to writing.
    I have had a hard time clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out there.
    I ddo take pleasure in writing but iit just seems
    like the first 10 to 15 minutess are generally lost simply just trying too figure out
    how to begin. Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!

      Hi!
      Writing has always been my passion so for me, if I found a topic I really want to write I can focus on that.
      Probably what you need is to find a subject/inspiration/topic you really want to write yourself and you know you can invest your time to.
      If you don’t like what you are writing you’ll feel demotivated, so try to find some thing you want and work on that.

      If you really have to write on something you are not familiar with, try to write it in the slant that you are interested in. Like for example, my editor wants me to write about current fashion. I will write something about Japanese fashion like harajuku and it’s impact on the other fashion in the world– something like that.

    I’m extremely impressed with your writing skills and also
    with the layout on your blog. Is this a paid theme or did you modify it yourself?
    Either way keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a great blog like this one today.

      Hi! The theme is a free theme! We did a bit of modification ourselves 🙂
