FAMILY FUN THROUGH A GIANT ENTERTAINMENT DISTRICT – THE DIRYAH OASIS
A giant open-air family entertainment district for all ages – the spectacular Diriyah Oasis – will be created as part of the thrilling Diriyah Season, coming soon to the UNESCO World Heritage site on the outskirts of Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
As a cultural and entertainment district, Diriyah Oasis pays tribute to Diriyah’s historical importance, being the birthplace of the KSA, and which reflects the rich heritage, unique architecture and affluent resources of Saudi Arabia and the region.
Diriyah Oasis is split into the four zones – Nature, Imagination, Reflection and Excitement - and spreads over 130K sq m. The Oasis promises to be a whole lot of fun, giving families a place to come together, play and enjoy Saudi’s deep sense of community. All zones will feature carnival games and stalls, plus dining options to suit all tastes.
The Nature Zone will have some astonishing activations such as the Zip-zag, butterfly dome, and it will create a totally green space, lush with plants, for families to explore with farmers’ markets, forest walks and a butterfly oasis, complimented by children’s games and food and beverage areas.
The Reflection Zone provides a soothing environment to relax and unwind, with tranquil ponds and space to sit and think. But for those feeling more active, it will also see an outdoor ice-skating rink and ‘aqua karts’ that are essentially karting on water.
In the Imagination Zone, visitors will enjoy trying out the flying Star Flayer, and children will be able to play in the ‘Steam Lab’, an interactive exhibition packed with engaging attractions which expand young minds. Add to that illusion rooms, arts and crafts workshops, a ‘confetti dome’ and an urban maze.
The Excitement Zone pulses will quicken with four themed escape rooms, a drone arena, a laser tag zone and a ‘VR sports world’ plus bumper cars.
