We’re back with another installment of Marine Life Park – from the air.
Tag Archives | mlp:aerial
Marine Life Park opened to the public last Thursday, 22nd November 2012. While there is no further construction taking place at the park, the from the air series will continue as we take an extended look at Marine Life Park’s Adventure Cove Waterpark in operation.
The opening of the world’s largest Oceanarium was blemished with the unfortunate passing of Wen Wen, an Indo-Pacific Bottlenose dolphin. This dolphin died en route to Singapore. A candlelight vigil and memorial service will be held for the dolphin on 2nd Dec 2012. The remaining 24 dolphins (from the original group of 27) are now at the Dolphin Island section of Marine Life Park, acclimatizing to their new home.
The loss of another captive dolphin has stirred up the angry nest of animal activists, causing Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS) Facebook Fan page and local news websites to be flooded with comments, urging for the release of the remaining 24 dolphins in captivity.
Note: My blog entries on Marine Life Park are here to provide coverage and share content that other sites do not offer. These entries are produced for documentation purposes and as personal reviews and trip reports of Marine Life Park. I do not get paid by RWS. While I enjoy taking photos and blogging about attractions, my entries are not direct endorsements for Marine Life Park. I am not oblivious to the issue of dolphin hunting and dolphins in captivity, having viewed campaigns and research findings by activist groups as well as the responses by the Marine Life Park.
Edit 29/11/2012: Please do not jump to conclusions on the overall enclosure size for the dolphins, or the living conditions in the enclosure, because these details cannot (and SHOULD NOT) be inferred solely from the photos in this entry.
It is just weeks before the opening of the Marine Life Park (MLP) at Resorts World at Sentosa (RWS). Let’s have a look at the park in the eighth issue of Marine Life Park – from the air.
NEW!! Marine Life Park will be open to public no later than 1st December 2012.
Resorts World Sentosa announced last week that the Marine Life Park is at its final phase of construction and will be open in time for the Resort’s Grand Opening on December 7th. As previously revealed in earlier from the air updates, Marine Life Park is separated into two zones: S.E.A Aquarium and Adventure Cove Waterpark. Another signature attraction at the park, Dolphin Island, will be ready next year.
I’m delighted to share these photos of the Marine Life Park from the air. The park certainly looks complete, with major repair works done and contractors putting on the final touches on the park’s various elements.
As seen in the previous aerial update, many parts of Marine Life Park are still undergoing construction.
05/09: Scroll down to see some new photos – There’s been progress at various sections.
While the Marine Life Park might appear almost complete in the last update, it seems that there is more work to be done. Most of the pools have been drained and many areas of the park are now accompanied with scaffolds.
Marine Life Park looks amazing and almost complete now. Gone are the pools undergoing cleaning and treatment – they are all sparkling blue. There are also many finishing touches all over the park – we can now see the little facilities offered at the park to make a visit enjoyable.
This update also includes the list of water rides and attractions available at Adventure Cove Waterpark at Marine Life Park.
It is time for another update on Marine Life Park – the most exciting one so far!
