SeaWorld Abu Dhabi has got an official opening date. The marine life theme park will open its doors on May 23 this year.
The attraction houses eight themed realms, featuring up-close animal encounters, rides, entertainment, as well as dining and shopping experiences.
A collaboration between Miral and SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s eight realms can be explored across five indoor levels spanning an area of approximately 183,000sqm. The Endless Ocean realm is set to be home to the world’s largest and most expansive multi-species aquarium. This aquarium will contain over 25 million litres of water and be a dynamic habitat for more than 68,000 marine animals, including sharks, schools of fish, manta rays, and sea turtles.
Located on Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island, there will be over 100,000 marine animals in total, including 150 species of birds, fish, mammals and reptiles at the marine life theme park. Animal habitats in each realm have been custom-designed “using state-of-the-art technology and the highest standards for animal welfare”.
