    New renderings of the exterior of Qiddiya Oceanarium, which I think will be near Blue Planet, but not technically connected to or a part of Blue Planet:

    SPECTOR in partnership with James Hampton Design of Melbourne, Australia, are currently in development is a 300,000 square foot oceanarium that will feature a variety of themed zones reminiscent of a theme park, offering visitors unique experiences such as a planetarium, a saltwater reef exhibit, a deep-water oceanarium, and a freshwater forest. Additionally, it will feature a central plaza or hub where people can recharge, socialize, and engage in educational activities, including dining options, school and university classes, and family picnics.

    This new image* shared by @Osamah_333 on X is the first up-close look at Blue Planet, so now we can see that at least part of it is definitely a waterpark:





    *Note that this image is slightly modified, and may not reflect the current design of Blue Planet or Qiddiya Coast as a whole.

    Looks like Blue Planet is moving forward and that's the name being used because a Development Director is now being hired for the project.

    Part of the masterplan for Raha/Qiddiya Coast includes plans for an aquarium potentially named Raha Oceanarium. I'm not sure if the oceanarium is going to be in any way connected to Blue Planet or not. Notice in the background of the first rendering multiple dome structures and what appears to be waterslides and rockwork - that is Blue Planet so maybe it will at least partially be a waterpark.





    This is a rendering for the Entertainment Core between Blue Planet and Sea Dreams:



    This is a rendering of something called "The Middle". It's likely a residential/resort component that may or may not be connected to Blue Planet:

    This thread is somewhat of a placeholder until more information is released for the second gate at Raha/Qiddiya Coast or whatever Qiddiya's upcoming development is named that's north of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia. The other gate is potentially named "Sea Dreams": https://www.themeparx.com/sea-dreams/

    Based on posts for Sea Dreams, one masterplan has a label for this project saying what appears to be "Blue Planet (Water Entertainment)". Another masterplan labels this as "Water Entertainment Area" and is categorized as "Theme Park".

    Between this park and Sea Dreams is the "Entertainment Core" for retail and dining.

    Sources of this information come from the Sea Dreams thread: https://www.themeparx.com/sea-dreams/
