November 15, 2013

The Dubai Mall recorded a record visitor turn-out for its newly opened Dubai Aquarium & Discovery Centre, with 60,000 tickets sold in the first five days.

The Dubai Aquarium features the world’s largest acrylic viewing panel, while the walk-through tunnel and Discovery Centre allows visitors to have a closer inspection of the aquatic world.

The Discovery Centre is split into three main themes – Rainforest, Rocky Shore and Living Ocean – and allows children and grown–ups alike to touch and feel several aquatic species.

Rumours are that the Discovery Centre is planning to introduce further rare species in the future, including a crocodile and penguins.
