    I calculated the approximate acreage of the land that has been designated for SeaWorld Abu Dhabi based on the maps and it came out to about 160 acres. In comparison, SeaWorld San Diego is 190 acres.

    Here's the official website for SeaWorld Abu Dhabi: http://seaworldabudhabi.ae/en

    Here's some info from the FAQ:

    What kind of marine life will be at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi?

    Our teams are currently working on the design of the park, taking into consideration the 50 years of experience and learnings as well as the latest technology in creating the best homes for our marine life friends. We are still at the early stages and as we progress with the design, we will be sharing more information as it becomes available.

    The addition of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi expands Miral’s destination portfolio on Yas Island, which is set to double visitor numbers to 48 million by 2022. The growth plans are part of Abu Dhabi’s vision to establish the emirate as a global tourism hub with unique attractions and world-class tourism infrastructure.

    SeaWorld Entertainment is making progress on Middle Eastern expansion. The company said in a quarterly report filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission last week that "definitive documents related to the Middle East Project were finalized and executed" Nov. 3. The company said it will have more details later this year.

  6. If money has changed hands, it's 100% Abu Dhabi. The Dubai Palm Jebel Ali SeaWorld story is now closed forever.

    More details have surfaced regarding SeaWorld's plans for expanding into the Middle East. The article from Attractions Management reaffirms the rumor that SeaWorld is specifically planning on opening a park in Abu Dhabi and/or Saudi Arabia.

    Here are some of the key facts from the article:

    • SeaWorld CEO Joel Manby says that SeaWorld has "moved to a definitive agreement stage" and that "money has changed hands"

    • SeaWorld is hoping to publicly announce the expansion plans in Fall 2016

    • This "SeaWorld attraction" will not have orca whales on display

    During a Town Hall that took place at SeaWorld Orlando this past Saturday, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment's CEO reaffirmed plans to open up a park in the Middle East, including a SeaWorld Rescue Center. No further details, including specific location, were revealed. At least we know it's still in the works!
