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

In Cologne, Germany, at the 2019 Gamescom gaming trade fair, visitors got a chance to experience the latest version of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. The game was hugely popular and attracted a lot of attention from fans and gamers alike who were eager to try out its new features.

Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia, plans are underway to build the first-ever Dragon Ball Z theme park as part of the kingdom’s Qiddiya project. This massive entertainment venue will cover over 5.3 million square feet and feature seven different areas inspired by the original Japanese anime television series. In addition to themed rides, hotels, and restaurants, the park will also have five “world first” rides, including a 230-foot-high roller coaster named Shenron after the series’ magical dragon.

Saudi Arabia has been investing heavily in video games and anime, with collaborations between Japan-based Toei Animation and MiSK resulting in new anime movies. The Saudi Public Investment Fund has also shown interest in these industries. Qiddiya aims to become a major tourist destination with over 400 specific attractions including golf courses, theme parks, and hotels. With plans to host millions of visitors annually, Riyadh is part of the kingdom’s efforts to diversify its economy away from oil dependence. The Vision 2030 project spearheaded by Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman has set ambitious goals for tourism in Saudi Arabia, with a target of 150 million tourists by 2030.
