  2. It looks like Half Moon Bay is south of the city of Dammam, just across the bridge from Bahrain. Smart location for SEVEN's first theme park.

    Note that one of their theme parks will be called 'Half Moon Bay'.

    Does anyone know where this location is? Land-clearing has already begun for the Riyadh sites according to the press release in November 2019.

    One of the leaders in the Saudi Arabian drive to transform the country’s leisure and entertainment offering is Saudi Entertainment Ventures and its CEO Bill Ernest spoke to InterGame revealing just what its roadmap contained. [...] The construction that Ernest speaks of is considerable, too. Averaging an impressive 50,000sq.m each, 20 Seven branded, indoor entertainment complexes are planned for the kingdom and will comprise 50 per cent entertainment, 30 per cent F&B and 20 per cent dedicated retail.
    Land clearing and construction on two sites in the capital, Riyadh, are already under way with sites in the eastern city of Dammam being worked on, too. US-headquartered global design and architecture firm Gensler is putting together the outside designs and fellow US experience design and production agency Thinkwell is responsible for the guest journey inside.

  8. Former Walt Disney Parks & Resorts exec Bill Ernest is at the helm of SEVEN:
