The World’s Biggest Underwater Theme Park Stars A Boeing 747

In August, the Gulf nation of Bahrain will unveil what it says is the world’s biggest underwater theme park. The centerpiece of this attraction – which is intended to be a kind of “dive experience” – is a sunken 747. Once open, the park will feature attractions such as coral reefs and sculptures.

Bahrain is set to unveil what is purported to be the world’s biggest underwater theme park in August and when it comes to this major attraction, the Gulf nation certainly isn’t holding back, as Arabian Business reports. The centerpiece of the park is a Boeing 747, which was sunk into the sea off the coast of Bahrain earlier this week.

As reported by Gulf Daily News, it is hoped that the theme park – complete with this submerged 747 – will serve as a kind of “dive experience” offering a host of other features, including sculptures and coral reefs.

Speaking to the outlet, Zayed Alzayani, the nation’s industry, commerce and tourism minister was quoted as saying, “We are proud to launch this unique eco-friendly project in co-operation with the Supreme Council for Environment (SCE) and the private sector.”

The project is implemented in accordance with strict environmental standards and international best industry practices in the field of environmental sustainability, with an overall aim to revive the kingdom’s marine ecosystem and preserve its local marine environment,” he added.
