Octonauts to Launch at Sea Life Shanghai
Merlin Entertainments has partnered with Silvergate Media to bring its hit property Octonauts to Changfeng Ocean World in Shanghai, part of the Sea Life global aquarium chain.
Silvergate Media’s animated TV show, Octonauts, continues to appeal to audiences around the world thanks to its storytelling, educational narratives and compelling characters, which enable it to cross cultural divides. Currently, Silvergate is readying the launch of the fifth season of Octonauts which will air this year.
Opening in June 2020, the new attraction at Changfeng Ocean World will be the largest Octonauts attraction worldwide, creating an authentically themed experience that will give families the opportunity to play and explore in a fully submersed Octopod within the aquarium’s new ‘Stingray Bay’ experience. Visitors to the new attraction will join their favourite characters including Captain Barnacles, Kwazii, and Peso, and learn about the world’s oceans and sea life. Guests will also be able to purchase Octonauts products in a dedicated gift shop.
The attraction hopes to build on the momentum of previous Sea Life partnerships with Silvergate Media in the UK, Europe, Australia and the US, with additional new activations due to be announced later this year.
