SEA LIFE Malaysia, an interactive aquarium which is a new enhancement of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort, has reached another milestone in its construction with the filling of the Ocean tank, which will consist of 400,000-gallon of water once filled.
As reported by Bernama, the Ocean tank which is the largest tank in the aquarium, will house a replica of a historic shipwreck, Wanli and be entirely themed to look like you are walking through the shipwreck with LEGO elements spread out for display.
Once the tanks have been filled, SEA LIFE aquarists will be working diligently to get the water quality and salt content ready for the arrival of marine life including Black Tip Reef Shark, Zebra shark, stingrays, seahorses, jelly fish and more.
“With this milestone, SEA LIFE Malaysia has completed 95 per cent of its construction and we are on track to launch SEA LIFE Malaysia by the first half of 2019. SEA LIFE Malaysia will refresh our offerings to Malaysians and provide a new experience to visitors from all over the world. It will also allow us to engage children in a meaningful way and enable them to learn through play. The interactive aquarium is designed to be a great introduction for children of all ages to marine life. Through SEA LIFE, our young generation will be introduced to the marine life and this will allow them to appreciate and learn on ways to conserve our delicate ocean,” said Kurt Stocks, general manager of LEGOLAND Malaysia Resort.
Upon completion, the two-storey interactive aquarium measuring at 2,123 square metres will house more than 25 display tanks with 11 habitat zones. — Construction+ Online
