It is unclear whether the theme park company will tailor its rides, which include water slides, to the social codes of a country where public spaces are gender segregated and patrolled by state-sponsored Islamic morality enforcers.It will definitely have to tailor its rides to suit the country. For one thing, how is it even safe for chicks clad in heavy, head-to-toe black shrouds to go on any unadapted Six Flags rides? Also, the rides will have to be gender segregated--either by the ride (some rides being deemed unsuitable for the second-class sex) or, a la swimming pool rules, by designated times when each gender can use it.
And, sorry, but those morality police are bound to put a damper on the fun: heck, spoiling peoples' fun is part of their job description.
All in all, that makes a Six Flags Over Riyadh theme park one to avoid.
