The first Dragon Ball Z theme park in the world is being constructed in Saudi Arabia.

In Germany, visitors to the 2019 Gamescom gaming trade fair had the chance to try out the latest version of Dragon Ball Z Kakarot. The popular video game franchise drew in crowds eager to experience the newest features and gameplay elements. Meanwhile, in Saudi Arabia, plans were being made for the first-ever Dragon Ball Z theme park. This 5.3 million square foot entertainment venue was part of the kingdom’s Qiddiya project, aimed at enhancing tourism and diversifying the economy.

The Dragon Ball Z theme park will feature seven different areas inspired by locations from the original anime series, including over 30 themed rides, including five world-first attractions. One standout ride, the Shenron roller coaster, will soar to heights of 230 feet, providing an exhilarating experience for thrill-seekers.

In addition to the theme park, a collaboration between Japan-based manga producer Toei Animation and Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman’s foundation, MiSK, is set to create anime movies that will captivate audiences worldwide. The kingdom’s investment in video games and anime reflects a growing interest in these forms of entertainment.

Qiddiya City, the planned multibillion-dollar project in Riyadh, aims to offer a wide range of attractions, including golf courses, theme parks, and hotels. With ambitions to host 600,000 residents and millions of visitors annually, Qiddiya City is poised to transform Saudi Arabia into a leading destination for leisure and entertainment.
