 Saudi Arabia is on the verge of realizing an extraordinary project - the world's first theme park dedicated to the "Dragon Ball" universe. This unique venture, which will transport fans into the world of Son Goku and his quest for the seven magical orbs, is set to be developed as part of the Qiddiya complex near Riyadh. Announced shortly after the sad news of the death of Akira Toriyama, the creator of "Dragon Ball," this initiative is a joint effort of Qiddiya Investment Company and Toei Animation.


Manga and anime win hearts in the Kingdom

Interest in Japanese culture, especially manga and anime, is dynamically growing in Saudi Arabia. According to data presented by Manga Productions, manga and anime have already amassed an army of over 13 million fans in the country, with the number exceeding 85 million enthusiasts across the broader Middle East. The construction of the Dragon Ball theme park seems to be a response to this increasing demand and affection for Japanese narrative art.

Dragon Ball Park - from Kame House to Beerus's Planet

The Dragon Ball theme park will span over 500,000 square meters, where guests can immerse themselves in the world known from manga and anime. Iconic locations such as Kame House, Capsule Corporation, and Beerus's Planet will be recreated. In addition, more than 30 diverse attractions are planned, including five technologically groundbreaking rides that will provide unparalleled excitement. The park will also offer accommodation and dining themed around "Dragon Ball," creating a comprehensive experience for visitors. This ambitious investment has the potential to attract Dragon Ball fans from around the world to Saudi Arabia, celebrating both Akira Toriyama's rich legacy and the universal appeal of his work, which has ignited the imagination of readers and viewers across the globe for decades.
