Not part of the NEOM project but Saudi Arabia is all set to build a unique oil-themed amusement park called ‘The Rig’ to boost the country’s scope of adventure tourism. The authorities plan to build it in the middle of the ocean. The country hopes to lure more than nine million travellers per year from around the world once the project is ready.

According to the makers, it will have many tourist attractions including three hotels with 11 restaurants, many retail shops and daring activities above and below the sea. It will also have indoor activities like a cinema, a kids centre, a multi-purpose arena, an e-sports centre and an edutainment avenue. It will also have 72 other entertainment and attraction offerings like a water activities centre, an amusement park, a diving centre and an adventure park.

We hope it has 2p shove machines and ice-cream.
