Dubai FEC operator, Majid Al Futtaim, has opened its first Magic Planet venue in Saudi Arabia.


Reportedly the largest location of its type in the Kingdom at 10,000sq.m, it’s also MAF’s first FEC in the country in the Riyadh Park Mall, the newest shopping destination in the capital.

Continuing the theme of firsts, the venue has attractions that are only available there – the Twist and Swing and the Magic Tree for older and younger guests respectively. Also featured are Magic Planet standards, G-force ride, bumper cars and go-karting alongside the Crystal Mine Train.

A Gravity trampoline park,  Kids Square with soft play area and a four-screen VOX cinema complex complete the leisure offering.

Seperately, Little Explorers, MAF’s edutainment centre for young children, will also be making its Saudi debut at Riyadh Park.

Adham Badawy, director of marketing and development  at MAF Leisure and Entertainment, said: “We are delighted to be bringing Magic Planet to Saudi Arabia, making it the ninth country which we operate in. We’re aware that the brand already has many Saudi fans, so we’re expecting the new attraction to be extremely popular. Not only does the opening of our largest venue give us the opportunity to bring the Magic Planet experience to new audiences, but it also reaffirms our position as a leading amusement and entertainment destination in the Middle East.

“Opening our 34th venue is a huge achievement that we’re extremely proud of. Twenty-two years after our first opening in City Centre Deira, we are still just as dedicated to bringing great moments to our guests every day, and we look forward to seeing families, friends, children and adults across the Kingdom getting involved in the fun.”
