The Little Mermaid is a hit at the box office.
But a new underwater theme park in Australia has captured the imagination of many.
Theme park developer Eureka Entertainment has launched Ocean and Isles, which is set to open in 2019.
The park features more than a dozen themed underwater attractions including a boat-shaped underwater home, a themed hotel, and an underwater park with a replica of the iconic Great Barrier Reef.
Guests can even swim with dolphins and whales in the park.
The theme park is scheduled to open later this year, but Disney hasn’t yet released any official information about the park or its plans.
The park is set for a $50 million investment, according to Eurekas development plans.
It will feature an indoor aquatic theme park and two themed indoor pools.
The pool theme will feature “giant blue dolphins, sharks, and killer whales,” according to the plans.
The plan also includes a “glorified underwater village” that will feature a theme park-style restaurant, restaurant, theater, and movie theater.
Ocean and Isles will feature themed underwater pools and a movie theater, according, to Easeka Entertainment’s Eurekast.com.
“With this investment we’re able to create the most unique theme park experience yet in Australia,” Eurekus owner and CEO, Peter J. Eureks, said in a statement.
“The Ocean and Lands will offer the most immersive underwater experience yet and will be the first to offer this theme in Australia.”
Eurekoast.co.uk/Aus “Ocean and Islands will be unlike anything anyone has ever seen before and we’re excited to share it with our guests in Australia, where the Ocean is a natural wonder and is known for its beauty,” Easekast said.
“It’s going to be a truly unique experience that will be truly special to guests.”
The theme park will include “grizzly bears, sharks and killer whale”, according to plans.
Ocean and Lands is the second underwater themepark to open after the company was acquired by Eurekan Entertainment in August 2017.
Easekas previous theme park, the Atlantis themed Sea World theme park was shut down in September 2017, leaving only Ocean and Seas as a planned theme park for the rest of 2018.
Eereka Entertainment is reportedly looking to raise an additional $1 billion in the upcoming months.
