Waterparks Development


This opportunity entails building and operating waterparks in various cities across the Kingdom:

  • Four waterparks in three large cities: Riyadh (1), Jeddah (2), Dammam (1)
  • One waterpark in a medium city: Madinah (1)
  • One waterpark in a small city: Jazan (1)

The required investment is SAR 420M to SAR 470M per waterpark, assuming a pure private sector investment model.

Recreation and entertainment are key pillars of Vision 2030, with the government aiming to increase spend on recreation from 2.9% to 6% of total spend by 2030.

Waterparks are one of the most-visited entertainment destinations by Saudis abroad, especially given that no such parks currently exist in the Kingdom.

The serious government commitment, coupled with the large appetite for waterparks among young Saudis, create an attractive opportunity to establish waterparks in the Kingdom
Investment Size: SAR 420M – SAR 470M (per waterpark)
