For the world’s largest underwater theme park that is set to open soon in Bahrain, the country is sparing no expense to attract visitors of all age groups.
However, unlike regular underwater theme parks in other parts of the world, the one in Bahrain will have a ‘gigantic’ attraction.
Bahrain will launch the world’s largest underwater theme park with a sunken Boeing 747 as its headliner attraction.
The underwater theme park opening this Summer will ultimately cover 25 acres and will be developed as the ultimate diving experience.
Bahrain’s President of the Supreme Council for Environment, Sheikh Abdullah bin Hamad Al Khalifa, partnered with the Bahrain Tourism and exhibitions Authority as well as private investors to create this extravagant new dream project.
The premiere diving site will offer up the largest submerged airplane in the world and will be the focal point of the diving attraction.
The plane is “the largest ever to be submerged,” according to Zayed bin Rashid Al Zayani, Bahrain’s minister of industry, commerce and tourism.
Other features will include a submerged replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures that have been placed underwater as a safe haven for coral growth and as a habitat for marine animals according to the Council.
The project will hopefully attract diving enthusiasts from around the world, as well as help researchers, looking to obtain information and data on marine ecology and biology.
The UAE also announced plans last year to create the largest coral garden in the world along the coast of Fujairah.
