Saudi Arabia’s Dragon Ball Z Theme Park: A New Adventure for Fans and Tourists Alike

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 had the chance 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.

Meanwhile, Saudi Arabia is preparing to introduce its first-ever Dragon Ball Z theme park as part of its Qiddiya project. Spanning 5.3 million square feet, the entertainment venue will feature seven different areas inspired by the original Japanese anime television series. With over 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 set to be included in the 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.

Qiddiya City, where the theme park will be located, is a massive project that aims to offer over 400 attractions to residents and visitors alike. Plans include a Six Flags park, a waterpark, and various entertainment options. With Vision 2030 led by Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman aiming to boost tourism in the kingdom and diversify its economy away from oil reliance, it looks like Qiddiya City will become a major tourist destination soon.

The Saudi Public Investment Fund has been instrumental in funding projects like Qiddiya City with a goal of attracting 150 million tourists annually by 2030. With past events and attractions proving successful, Saudi Arabia is working towards establishing itself as a top tourist destination on a global scale.
