4. Al Hokair Land, Riyadh

With its castle-like facade, there’s nothing but fun to be found inside this Riyadh favourite.

3. Atallah Happy Land, Jeddah

As the name suggests, you’ll be sure to leave this theme park with a smile on your face. The large scale theme park boasts over 25 different rides, like a giant half-pipe coaster and the 20-meter high sky loop. In addition to the larger rides, you’ve got the classic pirate ship, dancing fountains, and some indoor fun like climbing walls to keep the family entertained all day long. There are also many options for food and refreshments to keep you fuelled for the outing.

2. Loopagoon, Half Moon Bay

The Eastern Province is home to the First Ladies-only water park in Half Moon Bay. If you’re looking for a girls day out or a mom and kids outing, look no further.

Instead of coasters, you’ll get your adrenaline rush with jumbo water slides, wave pools, as well as splash pads and a lazy river for some calmer fun.

1. Al Shalal Theme Park, Jeddah

Overlooking the beautiful Jeddah waterfront, Al Shallal is the ultimate saudi theme park. It’s like Saudi’s answer to Disney World. Coaster lovers will love thrill-inducing rides like the aptly names sling shot and super shot — definitely not for the faint of heart. Younger kids can have as much fun with bumper cars or the spinning tea cups and much much more. The huge park has ample facilities for dining and also holds ladies days sometimes.
