Marine Life Park to open to public ahead of official opening of Resorts World Sentosa

Marine Life Park to open to public ahead of official opening of Resorts World Sentosa
September 28, 2012

Singapore's Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) has announced that its second anchor attraction - the Marine Life Park - will open days ahead of its official opening on 7th December.

The Marine Life Park will be the world's largest oceanarium and will house more than 100,000 marine animals.

Its opening and the official opening of the integrated resort preceed plans to attract 16 million visitors next year.

The Marine Life Park (MLP) inauguration caps a list of 12 major launches in the 49-hectare Integrated Resort's three-year history, which commenced with the ribbon cutting at four of its six hotels in January 2010. Since then it has welcomed 30 million visitors.

Raising the curtains for the Grand Opening festivities will be a ceremonial launch at the resort's Lake of Dreams, public performances, and a 12-minute public fireworks display at its waterfront promenade.

Resorts World Sentosa Chief Executive Tan Hee Teck explains "Resorts World Sentosa set out to be the integrated resort that would transform Singapore's tourism landscape, bring economic benefits to Singapore and contribute to the local community. With unwavering commitment by all stakeholders, we are proud we did it."

"When the new Marine Life Park opens, we believe we will help put Singapore in the pole position as the number one family destination in this region for many years to come. This is the only integrated resort in the world that a visitor can spend over three full days in engaging and fun-filled activities. We have six hotels, a major convention centre, a great Maritime Museum, a world-renowned spa, and two mega attractions Universal Studios Singapore and the Marine Life Park."

The Marine Life Park will comprise two ticketed attractions, giving guests the option of either getting wet or staying dry.

Adventure Cove Waterpark will be the region's only water park with marine life elements, while the Southeast Asia Aquarium (S.E.A. Aquarium) will be the world's largets, featuring r marine stars such as manta rays, hammerhead sharks and, as of 2013, 25 dolphins.

The dolphins, part of the park's interactive program, were the subject of controversy last year, with some animal welfare groups calling for them to be freed after alleged deaths.

Dennis Gilbert, Senior Vice President of Attractions at Resorts World Sentosa, said that the park is created on an integrated edutainment concept that will give visitors insights into the fascinating marine world.

Gilbert explained "no other attraction in this part of the world comes close to the Marine Life Park in terms of scope and concept.

"We believe the Marine Life Park, being the world's largest marine classroom, gives us the opportunity to put Singapore on the world map for innovative marine conservation and education program."
