SeaWorld Park is a well-known family theme park in United States that offers various fun activities, entertainment and knowledge-enriching events that the whole members of the family will enjoy. One of the highlights of the park are the killer whales or orcas. Orcas are not whales, they are the largest of the dolphins.
They are considered as one of the world's most powerful predators. They feed on dugongs, sea birds, octopuses, sea turtles, seals and other marine animals found in open ocean. These species have become an icon of the theme park. But due to the criticisms and pressure from the animal rights activists, they ended its orca-breeding program. As good news for the animals and environmental advocates, the SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment officials declared that they will help develop in Abu Dhabi the first new SeaWorld park without orcas. This will also be its first venture outside US.
SeaWorld in United Arab Emirates will open in 2022 in Abu Dhabi's Yas Island. It is a man-made island surrounded by luxurious hotels, restaurants, shopping centers, Ferrari World and Yas Marina Circuit. The theme park will be an additional tourist attraction in the place. It will feature the UAE's pioneer facility devoted to animal rescue, rehabilitation and research which will focus on giving knowledge to visitors and tourists about marine conservation. CEO Joel Manby said in a report, "This gives us a chance to position the new SeaWorld in a very strong way, repositioning it from a company that's only about certain species to a company that is focused on ocean health."
Mohamed Khalifa Al Mubarak, Miral's chairman, said, "The Abu Dhabi site will have thrill rides and aquariums but it also will use 3D mapping and virtual-reality technologies that immerse visitors in virtual scientific expeditions or deep-sea dives. Abu Dhabi is going to be a major tourist destination, not just in the Arab world, but the world." Family vacations will be more exciting when this inspiring theme park starts.
