Marine park on way

January 2017

UAE-based Miral has joined hands with SeaWorld Entertainment to develop a first-of-its-kind marine theme park on Yas Island.

SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will also feature a world-class aquarium and a marine life research, rescue, rehabilitation and return centre. 

Set to open by 2022, the park will complement Yas Island’s four themed parks, which include Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Waterworld, and the recently announced Warner Bros World Abu Dhabi and Clymb which is set to open in 2018.

It will be the first new SeaWorld without orcas, and will integrate up-close animal experiences bringing the latest technology in visitor engagement.

Miral chairman Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak said: “Abu Dhabi is becoming a first choice destination for regional and global travellers by combining culture, heritage and unique leisure experiences into one compelling proposition. SeaWorld Abu Dhabi further strengthens Yas Island’s position as a global tourism destination.”

SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s research, rescue, rehabilitation and return centre on Yas Island will be the first of its kind in the country, providing a state-of-the-art environment for local and global researchers, scientists and marine conservationists to assist them to better understand and learn from the region’s marine life habitats.

Planned to open ahead of the theme park, the facility will provide an important resource for people looking to develop or enhance expertise in marine life sciences.
