Plans for an exciting new SeaWorld park have just been announced, and it’s going to be different to any other. SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will be one-of-a-kind as it will be the first SeaWorld park outside of the United States, and the first of their parks to have no orcas! The ground-breaking new attraction will be the “most digitally advanced SeaWorld park ever built”, and even though it’s not expected to open until 2022, it looks like it will definitely be worth the (very long) wait!
SeaWorld will bring over 50 years of rescue experience to Abu Dhabi, with a dedicated '4-R' Marine Life Research, Rescue, Rehabilitation and Return Center, that will open before the actual park. This will be a first too, as it will be the only one of its kind in the UAE. The center will include world-class facilities and resources that will help with the care and preservation of local marine life, and visitors will get to witness this first hand.
The new park aims to “engage, educate and inspire”, and will include unforgettable up-close animal experiences, exciting attractions and a spectacular aquarium. Technology is also expected to play a big part in bringing the guest experience to life.
Back in March, SeaWorld made a historic announcement that they were ending all orca breeding, and in line with this new policy, the Abu Dhabi park will be their first no orca facility. Instead, visitors will be able to learn more about SeaWorld's rescue missions, as well as enjoy a selection of thrilling attractions. Located on Yas Island, the park is only an hour’s drive from Dubai and would make a perfect day trip if you’re visiting.
