More than 40 percent of the construction is completed on the new SeaWorld Abu Dubai, a joint venture between SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment and Miral, a resort developer based in United Arab Emirates (UAE). SeaWorld Abu Dubai will be one of several attractions at the new Miral Yas Island resort development, which also includes a large indoor mall, a Grand Prix race track, a luxury marina, a championship golf course, and seven hotels. 

SeaWorld Abu Dhabi Investors

The businesses and investors behind this new SeaWorld location say that it is a privilege to partner with Miral, a best-in-class organization, to build the first new SeaWorld park in over 30 years and the first park outside of North America. Yas Island is a visionary and transformational project and is already becoming a landmark destination for global travelers. They are thrilled SeaWorld will be a part of this special place, which will further expand our vitally important marine life research, rescue, conservation, and education efforts in the region.

At nearly two million square feet, the new SeaWorld park UAE will be one of the world’s largest indoor theme parks. A massive aquarium will anchor the park that the company is billing as "one of the world’s largest and most progressive indoor aquariums." According to an October 5, 2020 press release, the park will be divided into 'six distinct realms which tell a unified and immersive "One Ocean" story'. The park will also be home to SeaWorld Rescue Abu Dubai, the first dedicated marine research, rescue, rehabilitation, and return center in the UAE. Unlike the SeaWorld theme parks in the United States, SeaWorld Abu Dubai will have only a handful of rides and focus more on animal and educational exhibits. Exceptional animal treatment, top notch facilities, and positive public relations will be primary priorities for SeaWorld Abu Dhabi developers.

SeaWorld Abu Dubai UAE is scheduled to open in 2022 if there is no delay in construction of funding due to the Covid-19 economic aftermath. 

About SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment 

In its 60-year history, SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment has created a collection of 12 regional and destination theme parks, featuring marine animals and educational rides and exhibits. SeaWorld is also a world leader in rescuing and rehabilitating marine animals that are ill, injured, orphaned, or abandoned, with the goal of returning them to the wild. In its history, the company has helped more than 37,000 such animals. SeaWorld's US operations have been hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic and Americans’ subsequent reluctance to travel. They are pleased to leverage global partnerships to expand SeaWorld’s reach overseas through projects such as the one with Miral in Abu Dubai UAE. This will be a big business move for SeaWorld in the United Arab Emirates to begin going forward and may spur other global expansions if successful. 

A Fresh Start For SeaWorld In 2022

The water park acceptance and appeal is much higher in other parts of the world than its original location in the United States due to bad publicity, controversy, and the documentary Blackfish. This new Abu Dhabi location could be a fresh new start for the struggling brand name in 2022.
