In their continued effort to emerge and diversify their resources – because oil reserves are apparently not enough – Saudi Arabia is building a whole entertainment city.

Qiddiya, Saudi Arabia’s entertainment city, will include 12 record-breaking attractions, including the world’s fastest, tallest, and longest roller coaster with the world’s tallest drop-tower ride along with 28 other rides and attractions across six-themed lands: The City of Thrill, Discovery Springs, Steam Town, Twilight Gardens, Valley of Fortune, and Great Exposition.

The plan behind this ambitious city is to provide the people of Saudi Arabia with a new enriching experience in a culturally relevant way, while still delivering the Six Flags experience people have come to expect all over the world – only with a Saudi twist. The opening phase of this megaproject is in 2022, featuring Six Flags Qiddiya, along with a separate waterpark. 

From Nicki Minaj and David Guetta concerts to roller coasters, we can’t even think of what might be next for Saudi Arabia.
