An overview of the Abu Dhabi Miral SeaWorld

The project is developed in five indoor levels on a total area of approximately 45.2 acres. The park’s design leverages SeaWorld’s years of experience in marine research, conservation, and animal welfare. It will feature purpose-built habitats and ecosystems that will house different species together just as they are in the wild.

Once complete, the marine life theme park will offer immersive experiences. These experiences will engage visitors from the United Arab Emirates and around the world. Consequently, broadening their knowledge and appreciation of marine life. In addition, the park will feature one of the world’s largest indoor aquariums. It will have an immersive ride that takes guests on a journey from Pole to Pole. There will also be other interactive exhibits.

Furthermore, Abu Dhabi Miral SeaWorld will be home to six distinct realms. This will reportedly tell a unified and immersive “One Ocean” story. Reportedly, the story will show the interconnectivity between all life on Earth and our oceans. “We are connected to the Ocean, and the Ocean connects all of us.”

Aim for the project

In collaboration with SeaWorld Parks and Entertainment, Abu Dhabi Miral SeaWorld aims to bring the next generation of marine life theme parks to Yas Island. It will be home to the UAE’s first dedicated marine research, rescue, rehabilitation, and return center providing facilities to support regional and global conservation efforts.

The research center will serve as an advanced knowledge harbor for researchers, scientists, and marine conservationists to better understand and protect the region’s marine life and ecosystem. The research will include live studies into indigenous Gulf species such as dugongs and sea turtles. It will thus further contribute to the global marine science community.
