    CEO Michael Reininger and our development team visited the site to check on the progress of Qiddiya’s Resort Core mass grading project, where Six Flags Qiddiya, the Speed Park, the Water Theme Park and Retail, Dining & Entertainment area will be constructed.

  3. Not directly related to the Six Flags park in Riyadh, but nevertheless important in that context:

    The rapid spread of the coronavirus across the United States has already forced amusement park operator Six Flags (NYSE: SIX) to close down its parks through mid-May (at least) and slash its dividend by two-thirds.

    Today, that dividend went away entirely.

    In a press release issued after the close of trading on the NYSE Wednesday, Six Flags recapped the measures it has already taken, or is in the process of taking, to give it "additional liquidity and financial flexibility" to survive the coronavirus pandemic. Among these, Six Flags will:

    1. Eliminate "nearly all of its seasonal labor costs."
    2. Cut the salaries of employees and executives by 25%.
    3. Cease advertising and marketing activities.
    4. Cut $30 million to $40 million of "additional non-labor operating costs."

    Now, the company is taking further measures, which will include deferring $40 million to $50 million worth of capital projects that were scheduled to take place this year, taking on an additional $131 million in debt, and suspending both the payment of dividends and the repurchasing of stock "until the earlier of December 31, 2021, or such time as the company terminates the incremental $131 million of the new revolving credit facility commitments."

  4. Large-scale mass grading work continues at Qiddiya’s Resort Core - in compliance with all the required health and safety measures - as we set out to fulfil Qiddiya’s promise for a brighter and fun-filled future.

    Here's the current state of the area, but that could be changing soon as groundwork begins to ramp up shortly:











    Qiddiya has awarded a contract to Saudi Pan Kingdom Company (SAPAC) to build perimeter fencing as construction ramps up at the site.

    SAPAC, an established Saudi construction company, will place security fencing around the entire premises of Qiddiya, the Kingdom's Capital of Entertainment, Sports and the Arts. This first layer of security will enable a slew of construction projects, set to begin this year, to begin bringing in heavy construction machinery and restrict unauthorized access to the site.

    "With the signing of this 12-month contract, the first phase of developing Qiddiya's security protocol has commenced. We are proud to work with an experienced Saudi company as we set out to create the Kingdom?s Capital of Entertainment, Sports and the Arts," said Salman Al-Hubeis, Executive Director Infrastructure & Area Development at Qiddiya.

    The contract work includes 440,000 sq. meters of site clearing as part of the site preparation process, 20 km of security fencing, and 23 km of cable barriers, as well as 1 million cubic meters of earthworks to be filled.

    Saleh Bin Salim Al-Harbi, CEO of SAPAC, said: "For over 25 years, we've worked with leading firms in the country. We are thrilled to work with Qiddiya, a project which is set to change the landscape of entertainment in the Kingdom. To facilitate construction at the site, securing the premises is going to be the first step."

    In its first construction contract of 2020, Saudi Arabia's HRH Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud-chaired Qiddiya Investment Company (QIC) has awarded a 12-month site preparation contract to Riyadh-based Abdul Ali Al Ajmi Company.

    Chief Executive Officer of QIC, Michael Reininger said, QIC, which is developing the 334 square km Qiddiya gigaproject, has begun with "the mass grading and site preparation" of its two anchor development nodes: the Resort Core and the City Centre.
    Six Flags is located within the "Resort Core" area.
