    Thank you CarlySX for sharing the new rendering and design group Facebook page

    I went through the Facebook page and found some more renderings that hadn't been posted to the thread (note that some are old and design plans might have changed since the renderings were originally posted on Facebook)

    The Goddard Group shared another concept image from this park today. I still haven't seen any work taking place (going to go and try to find some) but apparently they are due to open in 2018.

    This breathtaking concept art by Christopher Smith depicts Haichang Polar Ocean World's RAINBOW FALLS land. The park, now under-construction near Shanghai, is anticipated to debut in 2018.

    Interestingly, they held a groundbreaking ceremony in March 2015 too!

    Does anyone know if they have actual started work or is this just more PR? The Press Release doesn't even have photos on this time which makes me suspicious....

    Polar Ocean World Shanghai had its official groundbreaking on March 30, 2016.

    Excerpt from the press release (http://en.prnasia.com/story/118288-0.shtml):
    The Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean Park project is the first large-scale world-class flagship marine park of Haichang Holdings, which will be based in Shanghai, opening-up Haichang Holdings theme park offerings to the East Asian market.The park will compete competitively in the international tourism market. Haichang Holdings is aiming to create a "top-five" world-class marine park, with the largest number of marine species on exhibition, the most innovative display methods, the most entertaining marine animal shows, in addition to the most diverse range of science-themed educational programs and comprehensive entertainment experiences.

    Located by Dishui Lake in Lingang, Shanghai, Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean Park is situated at a site area of approximately 297,155 sq.m., and has a total gross floor area of approximately 190,152 sq.m. with 12 exhibition halls, 4 marine animal interaction experiences plazas, 3 cinemas with special effects and 15 medium-to-large scale amusement rides. Adhering to the development concept of building a "Marine Cultural-themed Experience Complex", Haichang Holdings has commissioned a number of key international firms, who have also participated in Disney's and SeaWorld's projects, to aid with the product positioning and strategic development, and the overall concept development. Haichang Holdings aims to offer a "top five" large-scale world-class flagship marine park. The project today has officially entered the development and construction phase, and set to commence operation in 2017. Attendance is expected to amount to six million per annum after entering into a steady growth period. Meanwhile,the high profitability of the project is expected to lead to an internal yield higher than that of the leading level of international industry. In addition, it' will only take an approximate 25 minute drive from the project to Shanghai Disney Resort, which is expected be open in 2016, and have a strong synergistic impact. The two projects will jointly propel Pudong to become the biggest tourism destination and core world-class tourism city in East Asia, promoting the development of Shanghai as a world-renowned tourism city.
    According to these two sources: http://app.scmp.com/scmp/mobile/index.html#/article/1750564/desktop and http://www.meet-in-shanghai.net/news/news.php?id=2060, Polar Ocean Park will open by the end of 2017.

    Should this thread be moved to "under construction"?

    First I have heard of a 2018 opening date for the park...



    These vibrant storyboards from Dalton Nunez capture the excitement of Haichang Polar Ocean World's signature spinning rapids ride, FIRE FALLS. Now under-construction near Shanghai, the park is slated to premiere in 2018.

  6. Located deep in the wilderness of HAICHANG POLAR OCEAN WORLD'S Port Majestic land, the ARCTIC ADVENTURE pavilion features two distinct environments for penguins, divided by a thrilling ice slide.


    One of HAICHANG POLAR OCEAN WORLD's more intimate pavilions is the CORAL CATHEDRAL- home to the park's collection of tropical fish, jellyfish, and coral, all integrated with multimedia effects and optical illusions to create stunning displays unlike any seen before.


    On the opposite side of HAICHANG POLAR OCEAN WORLD, forming the backdrop of the park's PORT MAJESTIC land, is the POLAR PALACE- a sparkling frozen peak home to a number of the park's rides and attractions, including the RIVER OF THE SNOW QUEEN log ride.


    Located within Haichang Polar Ocean World's iconic RAINBOW FALLS mountain are the RAINBOW CAVERNS- an epic subterranean realm home to the giant Whale Sharks.


    This week we're going to give you an exclusive preview of the amazing themed pavilions within HAICHANG POLAR OCEAN WORLD, currently under-construction near Shanghai.

    First up is ODYSSEAS- a futuristic marine research lab located in the park's RAINBOW FALLS themed zone, celebrating the symbiotic relationship between man and the sea.

    An official release from Haichang Ocean Park regarding the start of construction which is slated to have started in October 2015.

    Full-scale construction of Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean Park is expected to kick off in October 2015
    No images to complement this news however and, so far, no new images of the expected attraction.

    They are using slightly different park names which hasn't helped with finding new information. Even within this one article there are many variations on Polar Ocean World/Park/Project.

    The Shanghai Haichang Polar Ocean Park project is the first large-scale world-class flagship marine park of Haichang Holdings
    Groundbreaking took place in March 2015. I am still trying to find any constructions pictures but it looks like nothing has happened since the groundbreaking ceremony.
