  1. This article has an interesting list of the technology in the Hypersphere which it calls a Dome Rider Theater. It quotes the developer and says it is powered by a 4 millimeter customized LED sphere with more than 75 million pixels, has a ride system by Intamin, 360 degree audio: 45 channels, a spatial audio server, Martin Audio Speakers, QSC Core, a Q-SYS system and Brainsalt Video Server.

    Abu Dhabi Ocean's "The Arabian Gulf" exhibit currently displays fish and one sea turtle, but eventually the exhibit will display dugongs and more sea turtles. So far SeaWorld Abu Dhabi has one rescued dugong, named Malqout, who is living in the back of house area right now. SeaWorld is "taking their time" with Malqout and it may be a while before he is on display in this exhibit.

    You're very welcome! Yes, Hypersphere 360º is now open to the public, but filming is strictly prohibited during the ride itself, so it may be a while before a video is shared of the full ride.

    The Sea Lion Presentation's stage is based on the Sea Lion Caves in Oregon:




    So far the presentation is just California sea lions, but eventually the presentation will include Asian small-clawed otters, Socotra cormorants, and great white pelicans. Those additional animals have not arrived at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi yet, and once they do they won't have an exhibit - they'll be living behind the scenes and will only be a part of the presentations.

    Despite no killer whale exhibit or show at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, killer whales are still present in the park.

    Throughout the day there's an educational segment dedicated to orcas in One Ocean:



    Killer whales are featured in the One Epic Ocean show:



    In The Armillary, the portals to Arctic and One Ocean both depict killer whales:






    The screen at the Sea Lion Presentation shows a killer whale:



    Merchandise at gift shops:







    A killer whale is projected swimming in the distance at Endless Ocean:



    One of the biggest orcas in the park is the One Ocean signage when leaving Tropical Ocean:



    The last sign at the park's exit features a killer whale:




    Also one of the first signs when entering the park features a killer whale:



    On the screens aboard the R/V Ahmad Ibn Mājid in the Arctic realm:



    An interactive game in Rocky Point includes a killer whale:




    The biggest orca in the park is on MicroOcean's mural:

    Straight back at the very far end of Endless Ocean’s main aquarium tank is a 20 meter tall by 6 meter wide piece of acrylic that’s dropped inside the aquarium itself and rear projected with videos of animals. The four animal species are whale shark, killer whale, humpback whale, and sunfish. The videos rotate and give the illusion of these animals swimming by in the distance, hence the name “Endless Ocean”.



    This photo is showing a killer whale swimming away. The tall dorsal fin can be seen as well as the right pectoral fin.



    These two photos are of a humpback whale swimming by left to right. Both pectoral fins can be seen in the second photo.




    This is mostly viewable from the Ocean Shelf viewing area because it’s closer to the acrylic.

    These two previously released renderings of Endless Ocean depicting a humpback whale and a killer whale were not placeholder, they were intentional to represent this feature of the exhibit:

    One of the main rides at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi is Hypersphere 360°, the world’s first Dome Ride Theater by Attraktion! and Intamin:



    Explore the depths of the ocean in a fully immersive, 360 degree multimedia sphere and get ready to embark on a journey full of wonder and discovery beneath the waves.
    The ride is hosted by Jules & Verne:



    Ride along with this fun duo, Jules, the esteemed captain, and his very helpful ROV, Verne, as they guide you on an adventure of wonder and enchantment beneath the ocean on the Hypersphere 360°.
    Guests enter the ride at the main level of the Arctic realm and proceed up a set of stairs:




    Then there’s a queue and pre-show:











    After the pre-show, guests board the ride itself, which features a variety of animal species, including some animals that can’t physically be in the park, such as humpback whales and basking sharks:
