Chimelong Ocean Kingdom
PGAV Destinations served as the master planners, lead design consultant, and lead designers for Chimelong Ocean Kingdom, a world-class, state-of-the-art marine animal theme park that features themed rides, shows, animal exhibits, and animal performances throughout its eight themed zones.
Chimelong has a wholly unique take on storytelling. It blurs the lines between shows, rides, and animals, and introduces exemplary efforts to remove barriers between guests and animals. It boasts the first roller coaster integrated with a polar bear habitat, as well as a whale shark monument that may be the largest man-made animal sculpture in the world.
