Dubai might have just changed the game with this one! As folks are starting to plan their vacations and excursions, y’all might want to check this out! Dubai is already known for having the world’s tallest skyscraper and largest mall, so it only makes sense to have another big attraction! According to CNN Travel, Dubai has opened another record-breaking tourist attraction with the world’s deepest dive pool.
The pool is inside a 1,500-square-meter oyster-shaped structure. It has 14 million liters of freshwater, equivalent to the volume of six Olympic-sized swimming pools. It’s at least four times bigger than any other diving pool in the world. As of June 27th, Guinness Book of World recorders awarded it the “Deepest swimming pool for diving” title.
One of the cool parts about the pool is divers can explore the “abandoned” sunken city apartments and participate in games underwater. The collection is equipped with state-of-the-art lighting and sound systems to create different atmospheres. In addition, the pool doubles as an underwater film studio. Suppose you’re not a diver, no worries. The pool offers courses for both diving beginners and those who are certified divers. To ensure all divers’ safety, 56 cameras are installed around the pool.
Divers should be advised that the water has a temperature maintained at 30 degrees Celsius (86 degrees Fahrenheit), a comfortable temperature for those wearing a thin wetsuit or a swimsuit. Currently, the pool is not open to the public. You have to receive an invitation to visit the pool—no need to worry. If you don’t have a connection in the UAE, the pool will be open to the public by the end of the year.
Roommates, would y’all book a trip to this pool for your next vacation?
