Theme park operator Six Flags is going ahead with plans to open in Saudi Arabia, Michael Reininger, the chief executive of Saudi Arabia’s Qiddiya said.

Qiddiya, which is about an hour’s drive from Riyadh, is being built on a 334 square kilometer site, making it 2-1/2 times the size of Disney World.

It will include a Six Flags theme park, water parks, motor sports, cultural events, and vacation homes.

A spokesman said Qiddiya expects to attract 1.5 million visitors each year when the first phase opens in 2022.
