Dubai plans to open the Pearl of Dubai, an underwater theme park designed by the art team behind “Avatar” and the five “Pirates of the Caribbean” films.

The theme park to be built by Reef Worlds is set to include scuba diving and snorkeling in a space modeled after the mythical Lost City of Atlantis.

The Pearl of Dubai is being billed as the largest sustainable underwater tourism site as it will stretch across five acres off the city coast.

The underwater attraction will be designed to excite the imagination with submerged ruins and references to a mythical, sunken empire.

The artificial reef, to be built in shallow waters of The World islands, will also aim to foster marine life with colonies of algae and soft corals.
