The Qiddiya Investment Company’s announcement marks a significant milestone as the park will become the world’s inaugural theme park dedicated to the Dragon Ball franchise.

Spanning an expansive area of 500,000 square meters, the park will offer visitors over 30 rides inspired by the Dragon Ball series, a Japanese cultural phenomenon known for its comics, movies, and video games.

The story of Goku, a martial artist from the franchise, which debuted in Japan in 1984, has captivated audiences globally for 40 years, leading to its widespread popularity through various media.

This groundbreaking project aims to position Saudi Arabia as a leading destination for tourism and entertainment, aligning with the country’s broader strategy.

 

A Preview of Attractions and Innovations

The Dragon Ball theme park will feature seven unique zones and include exceptional attractions, such as a dragon-shaped rollercoaster reaching heights of 70 meters. Additionally, themed hotels and dining experiences will engage visitors in the Dragon Ball universe.

Qiddiya’s ambitious plans don’t stop here; they include launching a series of high-profile entertainment ventures such as a motorsports track, a concert stadium located on a cliff, a first-of-its-kind gaming district, the fastest rollercoaster reaching speeds of 251 kmph, and the largest waterpark in the Middle East.

These initiatives follow a strategic partnership with Toei Animation, the original animators of Dragon Ball, emphasizing a mutual goal to bring the animated world to life and expand their collaboration.

Abdullah Aldawood, the Managing Director of Qiddiya Investment Company, expressed excitement about partnering with Toei Animation, highlighting the Dragon Ball theme park as a celebration of anime’s rich and diverse culture.

He envisions the park as a pioneering venture that embodies the “power of play” philosophy, promising a slew of diverse and world-class entertainment options.

Katsuhiro Takagi, president of Toei Animation, regards this collaboration as a significant achievement, allowing fans to immerse themselves in the Dragon Ball adventure uniquely available in Saudi Arabia.

This venture not only honors the Dragon Ball legacy but also solidifies Qiddiya City’s reputation as a global hub for innovative and playful experiences, underscoring the importance of play in fostering cognitive, emotional, and social growth, as well as cultural understanding and social harmony.
