"The new attraction will bring Octonauts to life in a way that has never been done before"

An immersive Octonauts experience is set to launch in June 2020 at Sea Life Shanghai, following the announcement of a new IP partnership between Merlin Entertainments and content creator Silvergate Media.

Octonauts is an animated TV show which is due to run for its fifth season later this year. Created for the BBC's CBeebies channel in the UK, it combines storytelling and educational narratives with compelling characters such as Captain Barnacles, Kwazii and Peso.

The new attraction at Changfeng Ocean World in Shanghai will give families the opportunity to explore in a fully submerged Octopod capsule in the park's new Stingray Bay experience, learning about the world's oceans and sea life while interacting with the Octonaut characters.

Octonaut merchandise will also be sold in a dedicated gift shop.

"Fun and discovery are at the core of what we do at Merlin and that is why Octonauts is an ideal fit for us," said Anthony Newman, Sea Life global brand marketing director at Merlin Entertainments.

"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."
