If this works out as described I believe this can hands down be the best Six Flags park. I can't even believe it's going to be a Six Flags park!
I don't know how the economics of theme parks works but this is definitely not all on a Six Flags budget! I think the key here is the mention of the Qiddiya Investment Company's role. To me, this is like a theme park designer was approached and told, "Design a new theme park that can be built in the next year or two and gathers significant interest. You have unlimited money."
Yeah, I'm interested to see how much involvement Six Flags actually has. The verbiage makes it sound like they'll be involved but I wouldn't be that shocked if it turns out to be all but a straight licensing deal.
I mean, I did see a few job openings for Qiddiya on the Six Flags job board so there's got to be some involvement. But also...
I'm also very skeptical of this park ever opening.
This is a very valid point as well.
I'm excited about the potential for this coaster and the park as a whole, but I'll reserve my full excitement (as well as looking at travel plans to Saudi) until this thing is 90% complete.
