Bahrain all prepared to launch largest underwater theme park in the world

 Wednesday, June 19, 2019 


By any chance, are you a water baby? If yes, this news will definitely make you quite thrilled. During a press conference on June 10 at Diyar Al Muharraq, the Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), has declared that it will introduce the largest underwater theme park in the world in August. However, hold on. We’re yet to disclose the real deal to you.


In order to make this underwater park, a unique venture, a Boeing 747 aircraft will be submerged into it. Spanning across an area of 1,00,000 square metres, the 70-metre long aircraft will be the key attraction of the park.


Consequently, as to sink the aircraft with the required procedures in place, authorities in charge, ordered a specialised team to carry out the job. In fact, “all possibly-toxic substances” were detached from the aircraft prior to its submersion to preserve the marine environment.


As per Zayed bin Rashid Al Zayani, Minister of Industry, Commerce and Tourism, the decommissioned Boeing 747 is the “largest ever to be submerged”. Those who are keen on visiting the Park will be able to do so through licensed diving centers by August, according to a statement released on the website DIVE BAHRAIN.


“The new theme park will undoubtedly emerge as a global tourist attraction. The world-class project covers an extensive area, and will provide an unforgettable experience for both tourists and diving enthusiasts alike. This initiative also aims to revive the Kingdom’s marine ecosystem and to preserve the local marine environment by incorporating international environmental standards,” he said.


In addition to the aircraft, the park will simultaneously feature a replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures fabricated from eco-friendly material, as per the statement.
