The title of this post is a new hashtag I've introduced to Twitter. I also tried to get my photoshopper to put niqabs and Abayas on the roller coaster riders, but alas, she no longer has Photoshop on her computer. So just imagine all that black hanging down, because yes Virginia, Six Flags Over Riyadh is opening soon.
The world's largest amusement park corporation Six Flags is set to open up investments in Saudi Arabia following a meeting between its CEO and Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman.
In a statement to Al Arabiya News Channel, Chief Executive Officer and President at Six Flags Entertainment Corporation John M. Duffey said the company was proud to enter this agreement to provide entertainment facilities” for the kingdom.
In his statement, Duffey also emphasized the importance of bringing entertainment facilities to citizens as part of Saudi Arabia’s Vision 2030.
“We share Saudi Arabia’s vision to bringing entertainment to the country. We share the same vision with Saudi Deputy Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman and are prepared to providing multiple options in a bid to translate that vision into reality,” he added.
Providing a space for entertainment and promoting culture is featured prominently in Saudi Arabia’s vision for the future that was announced in April.
Under the vision, Saudi Arabia has said it is planning to provide “land suitable for cultural and entertainment projects. Talented writers, authors and directors will be supported.”
What could ever go wrong?

Here are some of my proposals for Saudi-themed entertainment for Six Flags.
Wonder if there will be a Six Flags Over Mecca....

"a Six Flags Over Mecca" ---- A Six Flags Over Medina would be more appropriate. The Wahhabi cult considers any marking on a grave (not to mention a mausoleum) to be idolatry. Medina's Prophet's Mosque is therefore idolatry, because Mohammed isn't Allah, he's merely Allah's Prophet. [Theology.Guru.Mode=Off] Why did ibn Saud keep it, when he destroyed the Mecca and Medina graveyards? Because the Prophet's Mosque is a cash cow for the Monarchy. And if the Monarchy makes money off it, then whatever it is ... is acceptable.
