Adrenaline has a new name: THE RIG., an epic offshore destination, in the heart of the Arabian Gulf. This is no theme park – it’s an extreme destination, an entirely new playground for adventure tourism.

Take every sport that ever caught air, rode a wave or defied gravity. Spread them across massive, multi-story offshore platforms.

Test your limits, top your best, then catch your breath – you’ve barely begun!

In 2021, the Public Investment Fund (PIF) announced THE RIG. Project, the world’s first adventure tourism destination on an offshore platform inspired by the design of offshore oil platforms.
