Saudi Arabia’s adventure tourism destination to redefine sea sports and leisure experience

The Rig has launched its ambitious masterplan that will redefine adventure tourism in Saudi Arabia.

Catering to extreme sports enthusiasts and adventure seekers, The Rig is inspired by the design of offshore oil platforms and will span over 300,000m². It is located 40km from the coastline, near Al Juraid Island and Berri Oil Field in the Arabian Gulf.

The Rig will host a wider variety of attractions once opened

Developed by the Oil Park Development Company, The Rig aims to attract over 900,000 annual visitors by 2032, appealing to a wide range of domestic, regional and international audiences, including adrenaline seekers, explorers, balanced holiday makers, and relaxation seekers. The attraction will comprise three hotels totalling 800 rooms, 11 restaurants, an extreme sports and adventure park, a marina, and helipads.

Aside from offering a wide variety of water activities, including a diving centre, The Rid will also feature an amusement park, splash park, an E-sports centre, an immersive theatre and multi-purpose arena.

The Public Investment Fund’s (PIF) entertainment project is in line with the company’s strategy and the Kingdom’s Vision 2030 objectives of contributing to the growth of the tourism sector, directly and indirectly contributing to employment opportunities, and diversifying the economy.
