Bahrain has announced that it is all set to open the World’s largest underwater theme park with a submerged Boeing 747 in August,
The underwater theme park, spanning an area of 100,000 square meters, will have a 70-meter long decommissioned Boeing 747 submerged.
“All aircraft surfaces will be subjected to a high-pressure wash with bio-friendly detergents to ensure all post-production coatings, oil and grime are removed,” a spokesperson told CNN.
Along with the Boeing 747, the diving site will also feature a replica of a traditional Bahraini pearl merchant’s house, artificial coral reefs and other sculptures fabricated from eco-friendly material. All the sites will be submerged to “provide a safe haven for coral reef growth and a habitat for marine life.” says Zayed bin Rashid Al Zayani, Bahrain’s minister of industry, commerce and tourism.
