Can't wait for the Zombie outbreak.

The image of deranged lunatics climbing over those walls into the desert will be world class.

Anyway....I like the idea of this but it seems pretty impractical. If anyone can do it though, it's the Saudis.

They’d have to have checkpoint style exits surely?

Imagine an earthquake or fire 🔥 - the carnage as people get out.

A big fat no from me.

Can't wait until the thirst for oil runs out and the whole region turns into one big mad Max dystopian nightmare.

Then this folly will be controlled by roaming gangs of lawless pirates and wolves and develop into a corrupt anarchic state.

With its own football club.

I don't want to live there, see it or have anyone I know there - but for them, moving toward something that actually seems like an evolution to a future state - f*** it. Build it & see how it goes.
