At the moment, Saudi Entertainment Venues (SEVEN) is investing largely in the creation of 21 entertainment destinations around Saudi Arabia. Today, the company announced a collaboration with Triotech on the creation of interactive dark rides, based on the Transformers franchise. The first of these is to be installed in SEVEN’s entertainment destination in the Al Hamra district of Riyadh city, with two additional attractions set to open at other locations.
