    Themed Retail Design: Haichang Ocean Park Christmas Shop by Legacy Entertainment

    Inspired by Rothenburg ob der Tauber's iconic 'Käthe Wohlfahrt' Christmas Shop, Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park's 'Port Majestic' zone was the intended home of another highly-immersive retail experience. While the exterior facade is faithful to Legacy's design, the interiors were simplified during later phases.

    Today Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park has announced that the company has bid on the 12 hectares of land across the street from the park's entrance which they would use to expand the resort. Based on the layout of the expansion that they released the expansion would feature one or two new hotels plus new stores and restaurants. Keep in mind this is outside of the park itself, not an expansion of the existing theme park.

    Aquarium Design: Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park Dome Pavilion by Legacy Entertainment

    The facility which changed the most between design and opening was the "Science Pavilion" located in the Port Majestic winter-themed zone. In the original design, this was to have been a "Science Pavilion" which would house two main components- a domed projection show, and numerous classrooms and auditoriums for the park's educational outreach programs. In the end, the decision was made to combine with Science Pavilion with the Penguin Pavilion. The projection dome remained, but the space designated for the classrooms is now occupied by the park's penguin exhibit.

    Aquarium Design: Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park Seal & Sea Lion Exhibit

    Located in the park's 'Port Majestic' cold water zone, the 'Glacier Court' Seal & Sea Lion Exhibit it's among Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park's most-popular pavilions. Legacy Entertainment's exterior facade and interior design reflects the European storybook architecture of this section of the park. A close look at the main POV illustration will reveal that a WhiteWater / Hopkins 'River of the Snow Queen' flume ride was originally intended to pass through the building's second floor, allowing riders a unique perspective of the exhibit below.

    Chinese Theme Park Design: Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park Seal and Sea Lion Show

    The 'Joyful Circus' is one of several large live entertainment venues with Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park. This indoor venue is home to the park's Seal and Sea Lion live show. As seen in this concept art by Legacy Entertainment, like Sea World's popular "Clyde and Seamore" series of shows, this production is more lighthearted when compared to the park's other offerings.




































  7. All the way up through Legacy Entertainment's Schematic Design package of Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park, the Penguin Exhibit Pavilion was intended to be its own standalone element. In later phases, it was decided to combine it with the "Science Pavilion", slightly reducing the scope and ambition of the penguin display. Should it have been realized as intended, here's what Legacy Entertainment's unique aquarium design would have looked like. Bisected by an "ice slide", have of the pavilion would have been dedicated to Temperate (warm water) Penguins, with the other being home to cold water penguins.






















  8. Legacy Entertainment's aquarium design of the 'Coral Cathedral' Jellyfish pavilion at Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park blends educational content with dazzling visual displays. In addition to extensive Jellyfish exhibits, the futuristic building is also home to the marine life theme park's extensive Coral Reef exhibit.
















  9. Another unique attraction planned-but-not-built for Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park was a dark ride called MAGIC OCEANS. Legacy Entertainment's dark ride design team included Phil Mendez, best known in the theme park sector for his character designs on Monster Mansion (formerly Monster Plantation) at Six Flags Over Georgia. The hanging dark ride would have utilized ABC Ride's Swing Glider ride system, and would have been only the second installation of this ride type, with the other being Turbo Drachen at Potts Park in Germany. The ride would have begun with a slow-moving indoor portion, followed by a thrilling high-speed outdoor finale over the park's Rainbow Falls warm water island.




















  10. Legacy Entertainment's theme park design of Shanghai Haichang Ocean Park includes two opposing mountains on opposite sides of the park. The iconic volcano on the warm water side is home to Lava Drifting- WhiteWater West's unique Spinning Rapids Ride (which also hold's the record for World's Longest Rapids Ride).

    On the opposite side of the park, the winter mountain was originally to be home to an extensive Log Flume themed to The Snow Queen fairy tale. Unlike Disney's Frozen, also based on The Snow Queen, this hybrid Log Flume / Dark Ride would have been more faithful to Hans Christian Andersen's story.
