Largest "Polar Theme Park" in the World to Open Near Shanghaî Disneyland

It won't be part of Shanghaî Disney Resort but Shanghaî announced they will build the largest "polar theme park" in the world - a kind of Sea World apparently -  in Pudong, so not far from SDL location.

From The Shanghaiist:

Authorities have announced plans to open a polar theme park in Shanghai's Pudong New Area. The park will be the largest of its kind, housing more than 500 species of polar animals and over 20,000 different types of fish, Shanghai Daily reports.

Shanghai Polar Ocean World is to be built in Lingang New City and will be spread over 300,000 square meters. In addition, there will be a theme park, occupying a further 145,000 square meters.
Construction is set to begin before the end of the year when they will start building the 13 pavilions, four performance areas, four cinemas, and numerous other facilities that are due to make up the park.

Visitors to the park will be able to see killer whales performing tricks in a large water pool and will also be able to visit the polar animal and ocean wild zones to see various wildlife, including polar bears, emperor penguins, dolphins and beluga whales. The additional pavilions will contain sharks, penguins and coral.

There is currently no set date for which the park is to be completed by. Thankfully we'll soon have the new Shanghai Disneyland, due for completion in 2015, to hold us over until then (along with thousands of other tourists).

One could have hoped the days of parks like Sea World would come close to an end. But it wont end until these animals are extinct.

It still stumps me that the release date is 2015 when looking at the recent construction photos show that it looks no where near completion. Then again, Diagon Alley was completed in two and a half years so we'll see.
