Riyadh Winter Wonderland opens soon in Saudi Arabia with 40 pct more space

Riyadh Winter Wonderland is likely to open soon in Saudi Arabia capital with 40 percent more space during Riyadh Season, with additional games, activities, and shows for all age groups.

Starting October 26 and lasting until the end of March 2022, Winter Wonderland will involve more than 103 games and six areas: Dreamland Carnival, Snow Forest, Magic Box, Horror Adventures, Wonder Road, and Winter Festival.

Visitors can expect games, a skating rink, shows, and entertainment and cultural experiences, to name a few.

Due to the anticipated turnout, Riyadh Winter Wonderland has 40 percent larger space than last season’s carnival in 2019.

There will be more games in the expanded area of 376,025 square meters. The festival also offers countless food and drink options.

Riyadh Winter Wonderland constitutes international games held for the first time in the Kingdom, which are equipped according to the highest quality and safety standards.

Saudi Arabia’s upcoming Riyadh Season 2021 will launch on October 20, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of General Authority for Entertainment (GEA) Turki Al al-Sheikh announced last month.

The mega-event was first held in 2019, beginning in October and ending in January 2020. The inaugural event saw more than 10 million venue visits at the time.

In August, the chairman announced on Twitter that Riyadh Season is scheduled to be held in an area of 5.4 million square meters with 14 different zones, each featuring a diverse array of events and experiences.

He added that the season will include the establishment of 7,500 events, at least 200 restaurants and 70 cafes as well as 100 interactive experiences and 10 international exhibitions.
