From the ashes of 2 failed middle east Six Flags projects can it be 3rd time lucky?
Six Flags Qiddiya in Saudi Arabia has officially been unveiled, to be located in a new entertainment district outside of Riyadh and will open in 2023.
“Our vision is to make Six Flags Qiddiya a theme park that delivers all the thrills and excitement that audiences from all over the world have come to expect from the Six Flags brand, and to elevate those experiences with authentic themes connected to the location. As a place that will create indelible memories and moments of delight, telling stories that resonate with our guests is a central notion that will be evident throughout Qiddiya,” Michael Reininger, CEO of QIC, said in a press statement.
Six Flags Qiddiya will cover 32 hectares and include 28 rides and attractions across six themed lands including The City of Thrills, Discovery Springs, Steam Town, Twilight Gardens, Valley of Fortune and Grand Exposition.
The park will be home to two record-breaking rides: The Falcon’s Flight, inspired by the kingdom’s famous raptor, will be the longest, tallest and fastest roller coaster in the world, while the Sirocco Tower will be the world’s tallest drop-tower ride.
All I can say about this currently is: huh.
