    Today, November 16, 2018, Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park officially held its grand opening! Unfortunately Steel Dolphin coaster and sea lion/walrus show did not open but the significant opening of the day was the premiere of the park's orca show

    Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park's grand opening is in less than 24 hours! According to Haichang many of the main attractions that have yet to open including Steel Dolphin and Killer Whale Theater will be opening tomorrow so be sure to check back on themeparX for a plethora of photos from the grand opening.



    Special banners for the grand opening are now found throughout the park



    A cool view of Steel Dolphin



    The daytime parade has begun - eventually there will also be a nighttime parade out in the park's central canal





    It looks like the top and bottom of the cable cars light up at night



    Construction on the spinning river rapids by WhiteWater continues





    The outdoor dolphin exhibit is now partially open



    The recently opened dark ride's load area



    Side view of the volcano



    There's also now a waterfall towards the side



    The Snow Train is expected to open tomorrow



    A nice view of Christmas Town



    Inside the polar mountain trainers now regularly perform with the beluga whales underwater



    The theme park at night

    Testing of Steel Dolphin continues... I could be wrong but I think they're still building the exterior of the coaster's load station



    New green turf or matting of some sort is being placed on the roof of the dark ride building and in the distance you can see that the "manta" of the spinning river rapids looks complete



    A few days ago the park's dark ride named "Adventures in the Sea" opened! So far I've only found one on-ride photo from when it goes through an aquarium tank and a photo of the queue







    Some of the outdoor seating at the Sand Castle Restaurant is now open so we get a good look at the other side of the exterior





    Another ride that just opened is the park's kiddie coaster!







    Screens have been added to either side of the whale shark tank's main underwater viewing window



    When mermaid performers go in the tank for shows this area gets extremely crowded







    The main entrance queue for the Cable Car's station at the polar mountain is now open





    Inside the polar mountain there's now a second bear on display



    Central area at the seal and sea lion exhibit



    For an upcharge guests can now feed the sea lions

    A collection of recent photos from rides aboard the park's Cable Car:







































    The long line that extends into the main pathway in the last photo is for the Cable Car but this is just temporary while the main queue and entrance for the Cable Car's polar mountain station is being built.

    On the ground construction photos of Fire Falls spinning river rapids - this ride is practically guaranteed to not be open for the grand opening because testing has not even begun and the grand opening is in just over two weeks.



















    Reservations can now be made online for the park's onsite hotel - here's the first set of photos of the rooms









    Temporary signs for the trial operations listing what's open, operating hours, and showtimes



    Walking into the polar mountain



    This ceiling is I think some sort of screen



    Restaurant that's I believe in the polar mountain

    Nicely landscaped pathway with Steel Dolphin in the background



    Bridge crossing over to the polar area



    The same bridge but facing the other way crossing over to Rainbow Falls



    Archway at one of the park's two canal bridges



    Exterior of the sea lion and walrus show stadium which is still not open



    Jellyfish exhibit



    The Penguin Restaurant is now open! Guests get a great view of the park's Humboldt penguin exhibit while dining. At the door diners are greeted by a pair of penguin chefs. This restaurant is very similar to the penguin restaurant at Chimelong's penguin-themed hotel in Zhuhai.











    Meanwhile in the adjacent Antarctic penguin exhibit the Adelie penguins are starting to build their nests using little rocks



    A sign has been put up at the entrance to the Arctic animal exhibits inside the polar mountain



    Despite most rides not being open yet, long lines do exist

    The longest line is consistently for the dolphin show



    At the dolphin stadium is the Burger King, which not only gets huge lines because its right there when shows end, but its also one of the only restaurants open in that area of the park





    The first long line that many guests are experiencing is before they even enter the park and its not at the gate - right now it seems that the onsite parking garage is not fully open so this forces many guests to park in a nearby parking lot and then they have to wait for a shuttle to drive them over to the park entrance





    Two new night photos - first of the the Steel Dolphin shark tunnel and Christmas Town and then another angle of Christmas Town with the polar mountain lit up in the back

    Dolphin theater filling up with guests before the show begins



    This is what the theater's seating looks like



    Steel Dolphin





    The whale shark tank's very busy underwater viewing area, and no, the whale sharks haven't arrived yet so the large tank looks pretty barren with only small fish right now



    Christmas Town





    Icing running down the side of Fantasy Dessert



    Interior of Fantasy Dessert





    Here's concept art of the interior for comparison



    Happy go lucky sea creatures ready to take you on a ride around the park's carousel





    The mini jump tower and kiddie coaster are still not open





    This photo was taken from the park's onsite parking garage - when guests come down from the parking garage they first encounter an area to purchase tickets

    Work continues around Rainbow Fall's volcano, especially at the Fire Falls river rapids where the manta slide part of the ride can be seen being built



    The fountain at the center of Christmas Town is now on!



    Adelie penguin feeding frenzy



    Penguins swimming around the exhibit's oculus



    Polar bear exhibit



    One of the most unique exhibits to open at the park so far is the seal exhibit inside the polar mountain. Guests can view the seals from both above and underneath the exhibit and come face to face with the seals at the cylindrical glass part of the tank



















    Cable Car station







    The park at sunset
