Merlin Entertainments, a world leader in location-based entertainment, has teamed up with Silvergate Media to launch the largest Octonauts attraction in the world.

The attraction is located at Changfeng Ocean World in Shanghai, part of the Sea Life aquarium chain.

The underwater Octonauts experience was launched on December 28, 2020, and is already making a big impact with families visiting Changfeng Ocean World.

Guests are immersed in the site’s huge new ‘Ray Bay’ area, where they embark on a real life immersive Octonauts adventure. Visitors are contained within an Octopod capsule, which is surrounded by a diverse display of marine life, including spotted eagle rays, cownose rays and tropical fish.

Visitors can enjoy meeting their favourite Octonauts characters, including Captain Barnacles and Kwazii and Peso. Families learn about the oceans of the world and sea life preservation.

Matthew Williams, senior brand director midway at Merlin Entertainments, commented on the new attraction: “We are delighted to have opened the world’s biggest Octonauts experience at Changfeng Ocean World in the fantastic new Ray Bay area, immersing families in a heroic underwater adventure with their favourite characters from the series.

“Octonauts is an ideal IP for Sea Life with fun and discovery at its core, and we look forward to working with Silvergate to share more exciting and innovative themed Octonauts experiences with families at our aquariums around the globe,” Williams added.
