SeaWorld Abu Dhabi, A massive marine park entering its final phase of construction in the United Arab Emirates will invite visitors to enjoy the world’s largest indoor aquarium once completed sometime next year.
Once finished on the tourism and leisure hotspot of Yas Island, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi will span 183,000 sq m (1,969,795 sq ft) of floorspace across its five indoor stories. Attractions will include interactive exhibits, an immersive ride detailing a visual journey from North Pole to South Pole, and what is billed as the largest aquarium in the world.
