    Set to be the region’s first Marine Life Theme Park, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi has unveiled its remaining four immersive and unique realms. Combining an unforgettable experience with a strong commitment to animal care and welfare, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s eight realms will provide visitors with an inspiring day of exploring and learning about our planet’s One Ocean. From providing state-of-the-art, dynamic habitats and leading veterinary care to implementing the highest animal welfare standards, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s commitment to animal wellbeing is at its core. Here’s what guests can expect from the realms Endless Ocean, the Arctic and Antarctica Realms of Polar Ocean, and Tropical Ocean.

    The ENDLESS OCEAN realm at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will be home to the world’s largest multi-species marine life aquarium containing 25 million liters of water and featuring over 68,000 marine animals. Upon entering the realm, guests will find a magnificent display of tens of thousands of sardines swimming in a habitat called The Swirl. As guests venture deeper into this futuristic sea-base, they will be met with multiple perspectives of the aquarium, across over 20 viewing windows. Experienced educators will welcome and teach guests about the incredible marine life in this realm.

    The Observation Deck boasts an enormous circular window, while Endless Vista offers guests the opportunity to observe the incredible marine life in the expansive habitat through a vertical viewing window spanning over 20 meters. Each viewing window gives guests the opportunity to observe sharks, different species of rays, schools of fish and many more marine species all living in this dynamic ecosystem.

    Endless Ocean also includes opportunities for exploration with SeaQuest adventures, with three different opportunities for guests to experience the vast ocean like never before through dive experiences and underwater walking tours. This realm is also home to two dining options: Hazza’s Snacks – a kiosk stacked with sweet treats and refreshments, and Fathom 11 – a fine dining restaurant that looks directly out at the Endless Ocean, stunning guests with an unmatched view and delicious food.

    From the deep ocean to the polar ice caps, guests can next make their way to the realms of the ARCTIC and ANTARCTICA, found in POLAR OCEAN. Polar Ocean is also home to The Armillary, a breathtaking domed room inspired by an ancient handheld model of the universe. Here, guests will learn about historic navigation methods that guided early voyagers on their journeys as well as the distinct differences between the Arctic and Antarctic regions.

    Near our planet’s northern pole in the Arctic lies the colorful Juhani Village and its harbor, home to a diverse range of animals including puffins and sea otters, as well as its main inhabitants, the walruses. The Arctic realm provides these mammals with an ideal environment to dive and relax, with innovations brought together by advanced technologies and a welfare-focused design. This dynamic habitat, among the many others at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, sets a new standard of excellence in zoological care by featuring cutting edge technologies such as an Advanced Animal Lighting System (AALS) that simulates seasonal cycles and provides the animals with full-spectrum sun-light. A first-of-its-kind filtration system also supports a diverse underwater Arctic ecosystem with a range of fish and invertebrates to create a truly dynamic environment. The flexible walrus habitat allows for the animal care specialists to adapt the living spaces based on seasonal social patterns for the animals.

    The Arctic realm also features Hypersphere 360°, a fully immersive 360-degree multimedia sphere where guests can explore the depths of the ocean through an around-the-world journey full of wonder and discovery beneath the waves.

    Moving towards the south pole, Antarctica has the most extreme conditions on the planet – here, guests can enjoy watching the playful and captivating penguins. Guests will witness different species of these energetic birds such as King, Gentoo, Chinstrap, Macaroni, Rockhopper and Adelie dart, chase and float past in an especially curated space which simulates Antarctica’s cold temperatures and the natural light patterns thanks to innovative technologies and the specially curated lighting systems (AALS). By signing up for a SeaWorld Expedition, guests can experience a Penguin Encounter and get up-close with these incredible flightless birds and learn more about the differences in all the species of penguin found in the Antarctica realm from SeaWorld Abu Dhabi Zoological Team. The Penguin Play Area challenges young explorers to test their climbing skills and gives them the chance to feel the invincible spirit of Antarctic adventurers. Guests will also have the chance to familiarize themselves with the Antarctica realm’s lesser-known inhabitants, such as cold-water fish and sea stars – with opportunities to observe how these species live in together through the above and below water viewing areas.

    From the frosty north and south pole regions to the tropics, guests can explore the sun-soaked and technicolored TROPICAL OCEAN next. Home to waterfalls, a lagoon and a lush rainforest, guests will move through a passage of boulders and trees to arrive at Flamingo Point, home to a flamboyance of Caribbean flamingos, where they can observe these marvelous animals in their habitat and learn about their behaviors. Past the majestic pink birds lies The Rainforest, an Aviary with lush areas and lofty trees where guests will witness toucans, parrots and more species of birds soaring through the leaves and vines. Along the edge of The Rainforest is Coconut Bay, home to dolphins, tropical fish, and invertebrates. Guests will get the opportunity to observe these beautiful animals from above and below the water throughout the Tropical Ocean realm. Guests can also attend the Dolphin Presentation from the Tropical Amphitheater, where they can learn more about the dolphins and tropical birds, their natural behaviors and the world we share together. The experience doesn’t end here, as guests who have signed up for SeaWorld Expeditions will get the remarkable opportunity to interact with these intelligent animals up-close during a personalized Dolphin Encounter hosted by the SeaWorld Abu Dhabi Zoological Team.

    At Ray Reef, guests can view cownose rays and spotted eagle rays in a habitat specially curated for them, including the opportunity to interact with these fish while learning about their fascinating behavior and adaptations. Throughout Tropical Ocean guests may encounter larger-than-life characters inspired by the tropics, as well as Canopy Climbers swinging from tree to tree in an energetic show of playful acrobatics inspired by jungle animals. Tropical Ocean is also home to one of the most thrilling experiences at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi: The Manta Coaster. This record-breaking ride is one of the most thrilling experiences in Tropical Ocean, taking guests through dizzying loops with a regional record of 17 airtime moments and featuring the world’s first zero gravity flip-out and the world’s first twisting double-down dive.

    Additionally, the realm offers eight dining options and three retail outlets at Tropical Ocean – from delicious burgers at Cenote Café, to Mexican flair at Waterside Café, to authentic Asian dining at Spice Island, to delectables from Wasi’s Market or Lost Cove Treats, to name a few - there’s something for everyone to indulge in.

    More info released for the Rocky Point realm:



    A beautiful hidden cove set in the USA’s rugged Pacific Northwest. The moment you walk into this beautiful hidden cove, you’ll see sea lions resting on rocks, barking at one another, and jumping into the choppy water.

    At Rocky Point, we’ve created an above and underwater habitat that provides the animals with an enriching environment where they can thrive. Thanks to advanced technology, we can simulate the water currents, wave movements and lighting conditions of the animals’ natural environment. An Advanced Animal Lighting System (AALS) simulates the natural sun by recreating night, day, and seasonal light cycles precisely like those found in the Pacific Northwest, in addition to providing complete spectrum UVA and UVB basking areas.

    SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, the next-generation Marine Life Theme Park set to open its doors on May 23rd of this year, has revealed exciting details around four of its eight immersive realms. SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will take guests on a unique journey to discover the interconnectivity between life on earth and our One Ocean, with the Abu Dhabi Ocean, One Ocean, Rocky Point and MicroOcean realms telling a part of this inspiring story of commitment to conserving our planet.

    Guests will begin their journey at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi in ABU DHABI OCEAN, when they see cascading waterfalls, palm trees, desert greenery, Emirati architecture and hear the sounds of regional music. The park’s education team will be on hand to share knowledge with guests, particularly around the realm’s 30 species, which are native to the UAE such as sea snakes, sea turtles and dugongs. Here, guests can also engage with crustaceans, sharks, and rays in the four touch pools. The legacy of the nation’s founding father, the late Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan, is instilled all throughout this realm, reflected through his respect for the natural world and thirst for knowledge.

    In Abu Dhabi Ocean, guests can also enroll in SeaWorld Abu Dhabi’s parkwide game - S·E·A Guardian Games. This interactive and free competition brings together science, exploration, and adventure in a series of fun and educational challenges across all realms. Winners are uniquely rewarded for their progress along the way, ultimately becoming S·E·A Guardians themselves and advocates for our One Ocean. Abu Dhabi Ocean features two compelling shows in the Al Naham Theater telling enthralling stories of the rich history and fascinating waters of the Arabian Gulf. The realm is also home to the Abu Dhabi Souk, a traditional marketplace with stalls where guests can shop for keepsakes and souvenirs to remember their visit to SeaWorld Abu Dhabi. Guests can dine at Matbakh Ummi, serving authentic Emirati cuisine with a side of the Emirate’s beautiful tradition of hospitality. For eats on-the-go, guests can stop by Dallat Al Bahr for an aromatic Arabic coffee, or snack on freshly fried dough pastries from Lugaima.

    Next stop is the ONE OCEAN realm, which tells many captivating stories of our ocean and acts as the park’s portal to explore all the other realms at SeaWorld Abu Dhabi. This realm’s iconic One Ocean Globe, situated in its center, represents the ever-changing flow of energy and nutrients around our planet.

    Within the One Ocean realm, guests will witness One Epic Ocean, a must-see show that takes guests on a journey using immersive multi-media, a fleet of choreographed drones and spatial audio featuring a 360-degree screen standing at an approximate height of 15 meters and wrapping around the 218-meter perimeter of the One Ocean realm. The story follows a young Emirati woman’s adventure with the Arabian Gulf, sparking an epic journey through the Earth’s most fascinating ocean environments and swimming side-by-side with species of all sizes; ultimately sharing the park’s core message; “we are connected to the ocean, and the ocean connects all of us”. The always-active, encapsulating media experience will also show educational modules and immersive scenes from the depths of the sea. In between exploring the park’s realms, guests can plan their SeaWorld Expeditions by registering at the Explorer HQ to enjoy animal encounters and other unique experiences. Those hungry for a quick bite can visit Frozen Treats for everything from ultra-indulgent sundaes to multiflavored ice creams.

    Also, part of this realm, guests can visit the beating heart of SeaWorld Abu Dhabi: the Animal Care Center. This state-of-the-art facility featuring cutting-edge veterinary equipment and technology provides the highest standard of animal welfare based on best practices and standards set by internationally recognized animal welfare organizations. The Animal Care Center invites guests to observe the park’s expert team of veterinarians and animal care specialists providing dedicated care to animals, ensuring their physical and emotional wellbeing through daily practices, regular check-ups, and routine procedures.

    After One Ocean comes ROCKY POINT – a beautiful hidden cove where seals and sea lions can be seen resting on rocks and swimming around their stunning surroundings. The realm features state-of-the-art technology such as an Advanced Animal Lighting System (AALS) that recreates night/day and seasonal light cycles like those found in USA’S Pacific Northwest. Intricately designed to provide an enriching experience for the sea lions and seals, the dynamic habitat features various species of fish and spaces where the animals can play, hide and rest providing them with the stimulation and comfort that they need to thrive.

    At the Rocky Point Amphitheater, everyone is invited to witness an incredible Sea Lion Presentation. The story features sea lions, seals and birds and follows a group of local park rangers as they share with guests the playful nature of these unique animals. Rocky Point offers an authentic boardwalk snacking experience with Pretzel Point, where guests can indulge in a variety of freshly baked warm pretzels while they take in the sights and sounds of the marvelous habitat.

    From the One Ocean portal, guests can also venture into MICROOCEAN, where small is BIG! By passing through a series of colorful arches and “Shrinkerators,” guests start to feel like they’re shrinking while the underwater life grows bigger and more impressive around them, eventually revealing the colorful and playful world of MicroOcean. Designed specifically for kids, this realm invites young explorers to experience the vital role of some of the ocean’s smallest inhabitants through engaging and educational interactives, dynamic experiments, and fun play structures such as the Kelp Climb and the Explorer’s Sea Base. In this whimsical realm, little ones can experience life as plankton, the smallest and most powerful living organism in the ocean, and explore an exciting underwater world filled with BIG joy, energy and impact.

    MicroOcean is home to four family friendly rides: OctoZoom!, Jelly Plunge, Turtle Twist and Eel Racer – each taking guests on an adventure in this microscopic underwater world. Guests should keep a lookout for friendly characters, whether it’s Krill Dude and his musical show with clams and barnacles or the quirky Sea Stars that pulse, expand, and shapeshift around the realm. Also, within MicroOcean is Bitsy Bites – a dining outlet perfect for guests to fuel up on their favorite foods between big (or small) adventures, including pizza, chicken fingers and slushies. Additionally, micro-shoppers can enjoy an array of plush animals, fun toy assortments and apparel available at MicroOcean’s retail outlet, Squirts.
