Shanghai: New Octonauts Themed Attraction to Open at Sea Life Shanghai in Summer 2020

Sea Life Shanghai, which is operated by Merlin Entertainments, will see the addition of a new visitor attraction in June 2020. The new “Octonauts“ family attraction will be an authentically themed experience all about the childrens animation TV series named “Octonauts“ from Great Britain. Families will be able to immerse themselves into the world of Captain Barnacles and his friends. The new attraction will be located in a replica of the “Octopod“, the under water capsule well known from the series, which is integrated into the new “Stingray Bay“ experience at the Changfeng Ocean World Aquarium. Besides play and fun the attraction wants to inform and educate about oceanlife.

“Fun and discovery are the core of what we do at Merlin and that is why Octonauts is an ideal fit for us. The new attraction will bring Octonauts to life in a way that has never been done before and we are very confident it will drive growth in visitor numbers when it launches at Changfeng Ocean World,“ comments Anthony Newman, Sea Life Global Brand Marketing Director at Merlin Entertainments. The new Octonauts experience is one of many projects that Sea Life will realise in cooperation with television production and brand licensing company Silvergate Media in 2020. (eap)
