KSA first theme park will feature a record-breaking roller coaster 🎢 inspired by the Arabian falcon that will be the longest, tallest and fastest in the world.
Where the location of the Park?
The Falcon’s Flight ride will be one of the 28 attractions spread over six themed “lands” on a 32-hectare site at Qiddiya, 40km west of Riyadh. Construction has already begun, and the park is expected to open early in 2023.
Inspired by Arabian heritage and culture, other tremendous attractions at the park will be the Sirocco Tower, the world’s tallest drop-tower ride, and the Sea Stallion, which propels riders over rivers, behind waterfalls and through trees along a custom-designed course as they control the speed and acceleration of their horse.
The park will be operated by Six Flags, the world’s largest amusement-park company, which was founded in Texas in 1961 and runs 26 entertainment centers across North America.
Six Flags Qiddiya is expected to attract up to 15,000 visitors a day, and the operators have even made allowances for the scorching Saudi summer heat.
Park will be open throughout the year?
“There are 90 to 120 days when the climate is hard,” Six Flags International President David McKillips said on Sunday. “A plan has been produced to operate throughout the year, providing shade and using technologies like water misters to make the heat tolerable.”
The theme park will create 800 full-time jobs, part of a total of 17,000 employment opportunities in the wider Qiddiya entertainment, lifestyle, and culture project. By 2030 it is expected to be the world’s largest single tourism destination, covering a total area of 334 sq. km.
