The fantastic dolphin show at the Chengdu Polar Ocean World.
Chengdu residents could only dream of rare and mysterious polar animals and swimming in harmony with sharks and other marine animals – until now. After 4 years of construction, Chengdu Polar Ocean World has finally opened to visitors on July 28th. And at around the same time, Cool City Tourism Festival, organized by the municipal government of Chengdu, has also kicked off celebrations.
Chengdu Polar Ocean World has filled an absence in the tourism industry for the city; it is the first of such theme parks in southwest China and features a wide variety of polar animals, marine life and exhibits about marine habitat and life. There are also performances, science education programs, group tours, recreational events, shopping and entertainment opportunities offered at the theme park Ocean World in Chengdu.
The entire park measures an area of 240,000 square meters and is able to accommodate more than 3 million visitors at a time. There are five major sections to the park: Polar Animal Exhibit; Performance Hall for Dolphins and Whales; Happy Theater; Marine Animals Exhibit; and Tropical Island Recreational Area. Each of the theme park’s sections are surrounded by different exhibit halls featuring a variety of undersea animal life. The park has employed state-of-the-art technology to manufacture man-made snow, man-made sea water, and man-made habitats to help bring over 100 polar region animals including the white whale, polar bear, penguin, dolphin, and walrus to inland residents in Chengdu.
The Chengdu Cool City (Qingliang Tianfu) Tourism Festival has also kicked off at the same time as the grand opening of the undersea world theme park. Counties in the surrounding area will be hosting a series of events realted to the idea of “coolness” - bringing local residents a gush of breezy wind in the hot summer.
