Bahrain to open eco-friendly underwater theme park – the largest in the world

Published on : Tuesday, January 22, 2019

The kingdom of Bahrain will be opening an eco-friendly underwater theme park that would be the largest in the world.

 

Encompassing an area of more than 100,000 square meters, the eco-friendly destination would showcase a 70-meter decommissioned Boeing 747 aircraft, which is the largest plane ever to be submerged.

 

It will also be the home to a replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures made from environmentally-friendly materials, providing a perfect backdrop for a diver’s playground.

 

The details of this unique project was announced by the personal representative of His Majesty King Hamad, president of the Supreme Council for Environment, His Highness Shaikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa.

 

This one-of-a-kind theme park is scheduled to be opened for diving enthusiasts and visitors before the summer of 2019.

 

Abdullah stressed that the project is expected to become an international tourist attraction, given its size and location, as well as the unique experience it will offer to scuba lovers.

 

He said the site will not only boost the kingdom’s eco-tourism sector, it will also offer researchers with rich information and data on marine ecology and biology.
