Bahrain has announced to open an underwater theme park in August featuring a sunken Boeing 747 airplane.
The Bahrain Tourism and Exhibitions Authority (BTEA), during a press conference on June 10 at Diyar Al Muharraq, announced that it will launch the world’s largest underwater theme park in August.
Bahraini authorities will sink a Boeing 747 aircraft into the sea, with the attraction set to be the centrepiece for the kingdom’s upcoming underwater theme park, spanning 100,000 square meters off a Bahraini island city.
The Bahrain Tourism and Exhibition Agency say that the aircraft will be specially prepared before it is submerged in water.
Going by the various reports, the site is being designed as a dive experience. Other features will include a submerged replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures that have been placed underwater as a safe haven for coral growth and as a habitat for marine animals.
