    The park's volcano is home to a Skyway station and the Volcano Whale Shark Hall



    The main aquarium tank is open to guests at the Volcano Whale Shark Hall but the whale sharks and manta rays haven't arrived yet

    Long lines to enter the park



    360 degree dome show

    Photos and videos Part 1 (note that photos and videos posted in this post and the following posts are in no particular order):

    Large crowds entering the park



    The entrance's signature "WOW" sign and fountain is one of if not the most photographed spots at the park



    Entrance archway to "Christmas Town" which is home to the park's 360 degree dome show, penguin exhibit, seal/sea lion exhibit and show stadium



    Futuristic sign at the entrance to the 360 degree dome show



    Up close photo of the peak of park's polar mountain



    Within the polar mountain is the beluga exhibit. So far two belugas are on display,





    Steel Dolphin coaster is intertwined throughout the park





    Entrance to Volcano Whale Shark Hall which is inside the park's volcano in the Rainbow Falls area



    Smaller fish tank inside the Volcano Whale Shark Hall



    Entrance sign for the park's Coral and Jellyfish Pavilion



    Sign for dolphin show times



    The line to see the dolphin show was reportedly 400 meters long - imagine the line for the killer whale show once that begins...



    An energetic crowd enjoys the dolphin show which includes six bottlenose dolphins interacting with guests, performing alongside their trainers and a large video screen that provides educational information during the show.







    There's a small Burger King at the park



    Though the outside seating area is incomplete the Sand Castle Restaurant is open.

    Though the theme park is clearly still an active construction site, a handful of people can be seen walking around. I am not sure who these people are but I'm thinking they might be friends and family of the park's employees...

    Entrance











    Gift shop



    Steel Dolphin launch coaster by Intamin





    Facade for seal/sea lion exhibit



    Seal/sea lion exhibit





    Arctic mountain



    Indoor penguin exhibit exterior



    Straight ahead is the Sand Castle Restaurant, to the left in the back is the dark ride and on the right is Gold Coast kiddie ride area



    The park's signature volcano - home to the whale shark exhibit







    On the side of the volcano is the ramp to and from the Rainbow Falls side of the Skyway - note the Fire Falls river rapids by WhiteWater still be assembled in the background



    This might be the underwater viewing for the whale shark exhibit but I'm not sure



    Killer whale topiary at the entry road to the park's onsite hotel
