The world’s largest underwater theme park is being developed in time for the steamy Middle Eastern summer, complete with a dramatic, sunken Boeing 747.
Work on the massive 100,000 square metre undersea park which was once a Bahrain dive site is expected to start in the coming weeks.
Renderings of the park have revealed that the star of the underwater show will be a 70-metre-long decommissioned Boeing 747.
Abu Dhabi-based The National newspaper reported that the aircraft would be “specially prepared” prior to its descent to the bottom of the ocean, to guard against corrosion.
The soon to be submerged jet is being promoted as “the largest ever to be submerged”.
The underwater theme park is also set to feature a replica of a traditional pearl merchant’s house, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures.
For those asking the question, Bahrain’s tourism has promised the project is eco-friendly with everything to be made from environmentally friendly materials allowing coral to thrive and marine life to live safely.
The project is to incorporate 12 metre wind towers on the seabed expect to help promote the development of coral nurseries
The park will look to attract travellers with an interest in diving and marine research.
