‘Entertainment City’ to be built near Riyadh

We all know about Saudis extravagant partying ways but what we actually never thought was a possibility of Las Vegas-alike-entertainment-city.

Saudi government just unveiled a 334 sq. km attraction – about the same as Las Vegas – which will provide sporting, cultural and entertainment activities including a Six Flag park and a safari park. Not only that, the Saudi government convinced the reporters that the future entertainment city will be the first of its kind in the world so yes, we can expect something amazing.

The first phase will be finished by 2022.

This entertainment city is the latest project announced by Vision 2030, which aims to diversify the economy and reduce the kingdom’s reliance on oil, through a series of projects.

 

Authorities say the hope is it will not only attract visitors but the real job is to:

“achieve a healthy and harmonious life, and provide more entertainment, joy and fun” for those who live in the capital.

Let’s see what happens.
