Huge new £220m gaming island where you ‘parachute into check in’ to open in up-and-coming holiday destination

A RISING holiday destination is set to open a huge new gaming island where visitors will be parachuted into the check-in area.

With new British Airways flights set to operate from Heathrow Airport, Abu Dhabi is gaining recognition as an up-and-coming holiday destination.

And the capital of the United Arab Emirates could become even more attractive to visitors if funding is acquired for the world’s first eSports island.

Plans for the new $280m (£220m) attraction have been unveiled by True Gamers – an international network of eSports clubs.

According to the Aletihad News Center, funding discussions are already underway.

If funding is acquired, it is hoped that the new eSports attraction will be built on a private island and include “exclusive adventures”.

The new attraction already promises to provide a “unique experience for gaming fans” by including an array of features that will no doubt excite gamers.

One exciting prospect could see guests arriving by parachute into the check-in area – in homage to popular games like Fortnite.

Other experiences are set to include gaming boot camps for aspiring gamers, a training centre for professional teams, a venue for major gaming events as well as dedicated spaces for influencers and developers.

Visitors will also have access to a luxury hotel that plans to offer more immersive experiences.

An eSport camp for children could also open on the island.

New concept art shows what potential visitors can expect from the private island, including two large towers, a boot camp area and a gaming area.


Other details, including a potential opening date and ticket prices, have yet to be revealed.

There are plenty of gaming attractions in the UK too.

Microsoft Experience

The Microsoft Experience Centre’s Xbox Lounge offers people the chance to play on Xboxes free of charge.

The free-to-play gaming zone opened in spring last year in Regent Street, London and has three dedicated gaming areas, with 21 gaming screens for people to enjoy.

Those three zones include the Cloud Gaming Zone, with 55” Neo QLED Smart TVs for game streaming via the Samsung Gaming Hub – an online gaming service with no downloads, storage limits, or console required.

There’s also the Living Room Zone with 98” Neo QLED 4K HDR Smart TVs and the Tournament Zone containing 12 24” inch Odyssey G3 Gaming Monitors for people to engage in some friendly competition.

Science Museum

The Power Up exhibition at the Science Museum in London has more than 160 different games consoles for people to try and out.

The interactive experience allows guests to get hands-on with a multitude of video games from the previous 50 years.

Visitors of all ages and skill levels can enjoy a journey through gaming history, from the Atari 2600 all the way up to the PlayStation 5, with almost every console in between.

Classics like Mario Kart Races, Pong and Pac-Man can be played, alongside newer hits like Fortnite, Super Smash Bros and FIFA.

Meanwhile, this largest gaming arcade in Europe is in the UK.

And this attraction is like a real life video game.
