Not all attractions at the park will be opened on November 22.  The park is set to have its grand opening on Dec 7 2012. Until  then, for example, dolphins section will not be opened.

S.E.A Aquarium

S.E.A. Aquarium is the world’s largest aquarium  and will be home to 100,000 marine animals of over 800 species in 45 million litres of water. Comprising 10 different zones with 49 habitats, the aquarium takes guests on an underwater voyage beginning from Southeast Asia, and continues through the Arabian Gulf and the Open Ocean. Along the way, guests can expect to meet majestic manta rays, hammerhead sharks, bottlenose dolphins and other marine creatures.

S.E.A. Aquarium Senior Curator Grant Willis said: “S.E.A. Aquarium offers not only a stunning display
of habitats, but also education and conservation programmes in which families and guests can participate. Younger guests will be thrilled to know that we have specially-designed exhibits such as the Discovery Touch Pool, the Lens Aquarium and Floor Aquarium, to provide them up-close encounters with our marine residents.”

The centerpiece of the Aquarium is the  Open Ocean habitat, seen through the world’s largest viewing panel, at 36 metres wide by 8.3 metres tall; Guests viewing the habitat could experience the feeling of being on a cavernous ocean floor. The habitat is flanked by an Ocean Dome –an all-round viewing area and the  Ocean Restaurant, an outlet propagating sustainable seafood principles. Eleven  Ocean Suites  occupy the opposite site of the habitat, offering a twist to the proposition of sea-view by providing guests the experience of waking to an under-the-sea vista.

Adventure Cove Waterpark

The Adventure Cove Waterpark is a splashing affair for thrill-seekers. Guests can choose to get their adrenaline pumping with six water slides, including the region’s first hydro-magnetic coaster  – Riptide Rocket; chill out at the Bluwater Bay wave pool; or relax while tubing along the Adventure River.  One of the world’s longest lazy-rivers, the 620-meter river meanders through 14 themed scenes of tropical jungles, grottos, a surround aquarium and more.

The waterpark is also the only of its kind in the region to have marine life. Guests will have the opportunity to snorkel among thousands of fish at the colourful Rainbow Reef, or to sign up for rayfeeding and interaction programmes with sharks and dolphins, which will be introduced next year.

Mr. Edmond Quah, Director of Park Operations at Adventure Cove Waterpark said: “Adventure Cove
Waterpark will add a whole new dimension to water-based attractions in the region. We have gathered some of the most exciting and thrilling waterslides, and combined them with educational programmes on some of the ocean’s most inspiring creatures. Guests interacting with the rays, for example, will learn more about the animal from an aquarist. We hope these experiences will move guests to take action to protect the oceans when they leave the park.”

Opening hours for both the S.E.A. Aquarium and Adventure Cove Waterpark will be 10am to 6pm until 7 December 2012. S.E.A. Aquarium opening hours will extend to 10am to 7pm from 8 December.  Limited tickets are offered for Adventure Cove Waterpark each day and guests are encouraged to reserve their tickets in advance. More details on the attractions and offerings are available in the attached fact sheets.
