Visitors to the Dubai Aquarium and Underwater Zoo can get up close and personal with the ocean’s most deadly predators and go diving in a virtual “shark cage”.
The ‘Discovery Shark Week’ exhibit is a hybrid of digital technology and a living aquarium that features the “shark heroes” of Discovery Channel’s Shark Week show. The entrance to the exhibit is a computer-generated imagery (CGI) of a shark cage that divers use underwater to get close to sharks.
The interactive digital shark cage, which consists of LED screens, gives guests a chance to “be surrounded” by Great White sharks, but obviously only through CGIs. Guests may learn more about the shark’s biology using the information panels spread throughout the exhibit.
Aquarium guests can watch a three-minute preview of the full hour-long documentary to be aired on Discovery Channel later this year, on OSN.
Admission: AED 120
