Everyone loves an amusement park, and with its unique and varied range of parks, Istanbul is the number one choice for them.
MOI Park is found inside the Mall of Istanbul (MOI) hence its name. MOI lies in Başaksehir, known as the entrance to the lively part of Istanbul. This 4-star establishment offers a small roller coaster, Çuf Çuf, which is suitable for young children, and a parkour course called Kahkaha Geçidi where they can run and jump to their hearts’ content. Adults can experience a huge roller coaster which takes you around the whole park, and of course, a haunted hotel full of gothic decor and terrifying live actors hiding somewhere inside waiting to scare you. You’ll need an MOI Fun Card which you can pick up for free and then add credit to.
