They will most likely be on display at the new indoor "Chimelong Marine World" which is being built across the street from Chimelong Ocean Kingdom.

    Do they still have these killer whales in the holding facility? As this was already a message from February 25, 2017, which would mean they are already for more than over 5 years in this holding facility. Reaching probably 6 years before it will open.

    The construction of Chimelong Marine Science Park's main structure is complete.



    Paraphrased translations:

    From a distance, the entire building looks like a massive spaceship from outer space. The exterior design is seamless, full of grand momentum and a sense of modern technology. Walking into the interior of the park, visitors will feel the shock brought on by the huge space. Largest aquarium tank, largest aquarium window, largest living coral tank, largest shark display tank, largest aquatic life support system... it is said to be "the best in the world". The building has a total length of about 650 meters and a total construction area of 400,000 square meters. It includes a number of themed attractions such as Coral Mystery, Song of the Ocean, and Ocean University Hall. It can receive more than 50,000 tourists every day. After opening, Chimelong Marine Science Park will become the largest indoor theme park in the world.
    Walking into the coral area of Chimelong Marine Science Park, which is still in the commissioning stage, the reporter saw that opposite a huge coral tank is the Coral Restaurant of the Chimelong Marine Science Hotel, which is separated from Chimelong Marine Science Park by a wall. In this coral tank, there are more than 100 kinds of living corals of different colors and shapes, which are pleasing to the eye, as if you are in in the mythical "Dragon Palace".
    In order to achieve conservation initiatives, Chimelong Marine Science Park has set up a coral reef tank with a water depth of 5 meters and a water volume of 3,200 cubic meters, which is currently the largest living coral tank in the world. Dong Guixin, chief animal and plant officer of Chimelong Group, said that in the process of research, development and construction of the Chimelong Marine Science Park mega project, Chimelong invited dozens of experts and academicians from China, Russia, the United States, Japan, Germany, Australia and other countries to deeply participate in the important project of animal conservation. The living coral tank project alone cooperates with the South China Sea Institute of Oceanography of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the Shenzhen Research Institute of Guangdong Ocean University, and other professional institutions to carry out biodiversity protection work such as coral and Tridacninae resource bank, scientific research, education, and wild release.

    At Chimelong Marine Science Park, there is far more than just one world record. The water volume of the main animal tank here can reach 53,000 cubic meters, which is about to overtake the current world record. The aquarium display window on the side of the main animal tank is 46.2 meters long and 8.3 meters high. The Guinness World Record for largest aquarium window, which was set by the Whale Shark Aquarium at Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, will be topped by Chimelong again. Jiang Minling, general manager of Zhuhai Hengqin Chimelong International Ocean Resort, said that once the park opens, tourists will enjoy the magnificent marine animal wonders through the acrylic glass window. The world's largest aquarium tank, the world's largest aquarium window, the world's largest living coral tank, the world's largest shark display tank, the world's largest aquatic life support system... The world's largest, all encompassed by the world's largest indoor theme park.

    Various dynamic sculptures with sound and light special effects, rides such as "Deep Sea Submarine" and "Bermuda Adventure" which is a dome screen dynamic platform theater... Rich entertainment projects will provide tourists with immersive and surprising visual effects. Fifteen science exhibition spaces, including the largest "Ocean University Hall", which can accommodate 5,000 people at the same time, and uses multimedia technology to achieve the effect of education and fun.
    Jon Binkowski [CEO of Renaissance Entertainment], a core member of the international design team of Chimelong Marine Science Park, who has worked with Chimelong for 11 years, said: "In my 45-year career in the industry, I have never seen a more forward-looking and innovative project than Chimelong Marine Science Park" Chimelong Marine Science Park is an outstanding project that integrates international design concepts, and brings the creativity level of local theme parks to a whole new level.
    I would like to note that Chimelong may not in fact receive a new Guinness World Record for largest aquarium window/largest acrylic panel. Their 2014 record was topped in 2018 by Mount Tianzhu Happy Ocean Kingdom, which is a completely separate aquarium in China: https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/largest-acrylic-panel and https://www.guinnessworldrecords.com/world-records/largest-aquarium-window

    The area of Mount Tianzhu Happy Ocean Kingdom’s viewing window is 389.33 square meters. The area of Chimelong Marine Science Park’s upcoming viewing window will be 383.46 square meters.

    Here’s the latest look at Chimelong Marine Science Park’s orca exhibit and show:
