Saudis and foreigners residing in the Kingdom had the chance to experience different games such as the tug of war, the marble challenge, and the walking on glass challenge as well as running towards the renowned giant doll.

“I was really scared while running, I felt they would shoot me at any moment, I was shaking every time I stopped,” said Saudi participant Nouf Ali.

“It’s super cool, I didn’t expect it to be realistic, it’s a very physical experience and I feel like I’m in the show, it’s amazing,” said participant Ioulia Chafrai.

The experience is brought to the capital as part of the Riyadh Season, an entertainment festival, and eight rounds are held daily with around 50 to 70 participants taking part in each round.
