In January, SEVEN announced plans for a 100,000 square-metre entertainment complex in Riyadh, located on Riyadh’s Eastern Ring Road at the intersection of King Abdullah Road.

In an interview with Arabian Business, Ernest – a 25-year veteran of the Walt Disney Company – said that the project, and the subsequent ones, will have “a lot going on.”
