Saudi Arabia’s Qiddiya is set to be a regional and global hub of entertainment, culture and sport. The vast, fully integrated destination is another giga-project, just like NEOM, Amaala and The Red Sea Project that is part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.

Spread over a lower plateau and on top of a majestic cliff face, Qiddiya will offer hundreds of recreational and educational facilities designed around five sections: Parks & Attractions, Sports & Wellness, Motion & Mobility, Nature & Environment and Arts & Culture.

Sustainability and a wish to minimise Qiddiya’s environmental impact are also major factors in the development of the project.

A transport network that allows guests to easily move around from attraction to attraction and the hotels of different levels, soaking up the atmosphere, is a highlight of the master plan too.

Six Flags Qiddiya

Described as the “most unique” Six Flags ever built, it boasts 12 record-breaking attractions, the world’s longest, tallest and fastest roller coaster and the world’s tallest drop-tower ride. In addition, there are other theme parks, including a water theme park, and retail and dining options.
