The world’s first Dragon Ball Z theme park is being built in Saudi Arabia

In 2019, visitors to the Gamescom gaming trade fair in Cologne, Germany were able to try out the latest version of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. The event showcased the popular video game and allowed attendees to experience the gameplay firsthand.

Saudi Arabia is set to introduce its first-ever Dragon Ball Z theme park as part of its Qiddiya project. Spanning over 5.3 million square feet, the entertainment venue will feature seven different areas inspired by the original Japanese anime television series. With more than 30 themed rides, hotels, and restaurants, the theme park promises to offer a unique experience for fans of Dragon Ball Z.

Five “world first” rides are planned for the upcoming theme park, including a 230-foot-high roller coaster named Shenron after the series’ iconic magical dragon. In addition to the theme park, Saudi Arabia has made significant investments in video games and anime productions, with collaborations between Japan-based companies like Toei Animation and MiSK.

The planned “city” in Riyadh where the theme park will be located is called Qiddiya City. It aims to offer over 400 attractions to residents and visitors, including a Six Flags park, a waterpark, and various entertainment options. With plans for Vision 2030 led by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman seeking to boost tourism in the kingdom and diversify its economy away from oil reliance, Qiddiya City is expected to become a tourist destination.

The Saudi Public Investment Fund oversees billions of dollars in assets and has been instrumental in funding projects like Qiddiya City. With a goal of attracting 150 million tourists annually by 2030, Saudi Arabia is making strides in developing its tourism sector and creating new experiences for visitors
