    It's time for one of Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park's biggest updates yet! All this aerial imagery is from September 9, 2018 and as higher resolution versions of these images become available this post will be updated.

    The Steel Dolphin launch roller coaster by Intamin is intertwined through the park - other areas to note in this image are the outdoor dolphin exhibit which is connected to the indoor stadium, and the Gold Coast kiddie ride area which is located between the Sand Castle Restaurant and Steel Dolphin



    Foreground shows offices for the park and behind that is dolphin show/exhibit and beyond that is the rest of the Rainbow Falls area including the dark ride, animal exhibits, Rainbow Falls river rapids, and much more



    Killer Whale Theater - one of the park's flagship attractions



    The park's most recognizable restaurant - the Sand Castle Restaurant





    This large building is home to the park's dark ride and surrounding the building is Fire Falls river rapids



    Steel Dolphin passes over the park's central creek twice and is the first attraction guests will see once passing through the entrance plaza





    Overview of the east side of the park which is themed to a tropical environment and is located next to the on-site hotel



    Overview of the west side of the park which is themed to a polar environment and is located next to the parking garage





    The park's arctic-themed mountain contains the Alpine Express train ride, polar animal exhibits and the west Skyway station



    The park's on-site hotel is meant to resemble a cruise ship





    The park's seal/sea lion exhibit



    Dolphin show stadium



    Beneath the park's volcano is Rainbow Caverns - a whale shark exhibit



    Overview of the park





    Use this early masterplan of the park from Legacy | GGE to identify attractions in the aerial photos:

    All new on the ground images!

    In the center is the park's North Pole mountain (indoor polar animal exhibits/Skyway station/Alpine Express train ride) and on the right is the indoor seal/sea lion show stadium



    The Skyway goes over to Rainbow Falls



    Gondolas are already being tested



    Close-up photos of Rainbow Falls' rockwork







    In the right foreground is the dolphin stadium, straight back is Gold Coast kiddie ride area and Steel Dolphin coaster and and even further back is the North Pole mountain and on the far left is the facade of the dark ride building which can be seen even closer up in the following image





    Lastly, looks like the carousel at Gold Coast is ready to go! (notice the Steel Dolphin coaster train under blue tarp in background)
