  1. Saudi Entertainment Ventures is fully owned by Saudi Arabia's Public Investment Fund.



    The Public Investment Fund (PIF) is the sovereign wealth fund of Saudi Arabia. It is among the largest sovereign wealth funds in the world with total estimated assets of $320 billion. It was founded for the purpose of investing funds on behalf of the Government of Saudi Arabia. Saudi Arabia aims at transferring the PIF from a mere local authority to the largest sovereign fund in the world.
    PIF is also in charge of Qiddiyah and NEOM:

    Qiddiyah, an entertainment megaproject was established on 7 April 2017, and is currently being built, is wholly owned by PIF.
    On 29 January 2019, Saudi Arabia has announced setting up a closed joint-stock company named NEOM with $500 billion.[24] The aim of this company that wholly owned by the PIF, the sovereign wealth fund, is to develop the economic zone of Neom.

  5. 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.


  6. Pictures from their FB page: https://www.facebook.com/pg/EntertainKSA/

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



  7. Here is a small SEVEN logo/promo video:


  8. A Feb 25th article refers to "two LARGE" theme parks:

    LONDON: The Saudi Entertainment Ventures Company (SEVEN) plans to develop theme parks and entertainment centers around the country.
    Plans include 20 entertainment destinations, 50 cinemas and two large theme parks in prime locations across the Kingdom, the Public Investment Fund unit said in a statement on Tuesday.

    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.
