SeaWorld Abu Dhabi – Yas Island’s fourth theme park

Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is set to welcome another world-famous theme park by 2022.

Abu Dhabi’s Yas Island is set to welcome another world-famous theme park by 2022.

“We are very excited to announce Yas Island’s fourth theme park, SeaWorld Abu Dhabi,” Mohammad Abdallah Al Zaabi, CEO of the developer Miral said.


Al Zaabi explained the new theme park will include rides and an aquarium “with a wow experience”, as well as the first of its kind in the country marine-life research, rehabilitation, rescue and return centre, which is planned to open ahead of the theme park.

The park will be the first new SeaWorld to not have orcas and it aims to provide an environment for local and global researchers, scientists and marine conservationists to better understand and learn from the region’s marine life habitats and conditions.

SeaWorld will be located near Yas Mall, adjacent to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, and although the exact size of the park is not yet confirmed, plans show the park to have a significantly larger area than any of the other theme parks on the island, including Ferrari World.

“We said we have three theme parks today, we have Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, Yas Water World, we have Warner Bros… what else can we bring to the island? And this time it has to be different, not about speed or characters but about something else,” Al Zaabi said.

“What encouraged us more is the new direction of SeaWorld, focusing on education and preservation was the main driver of building SeaWorld destination. We believe the new strategy of SeaWorld will helps us build something exciting and new,” Al Zaabi added.
