The Palawan Island in the Philippines is nowadays famous not only for being one of the best Islands around the World, but also because American basic cable and satellite television network Nickelodeon which is owned by company Viacom plans to open an underwater theme park at the Island.
It has been announced that the Project also includes a resort and will have many underwater restaurants. Viacom is in cooperation with the company Coral World Park which is very experienced and even the first company to build such theme parks in Asia.
Viacom Senior Vice President Gerald Raines told that Nickelodeon is very pleased to work with Coral World Park and that they were planning to increase the number of theme parks in Asia.
The visitors are not only going to experience the amusement park around 6 meters deep in the sea but will also be able to attend different activities within the surrounding Islands.
People have the concern that the construction might be harmful for the natural and ecological environment of Palawan and therefore suggest that children should be taken to the Island in order to teach the existing natural beauty.
However, Coral World Park states that the construction is not going to do any damage to the Island, vice versa, it will draw many more tourists to the area.
Nickelodeon’s underwater theme park is projected to be opened in 2020.
