Dubai set a new world record for the world’s deepest diving pool this week. The Guinness Academy of Records confirmed this new record for AFP.
“This is a 60 meter deep pool, 15 meters longer and twice the size of any other pool in the world,” said Jarot Japlonski, director of Deep Dive Dubai, which manages the project.
The pool, which opened to the public on Wednesday, “has a theme around the submerged city,” he added.
The underwater city, as if abandoned, has been recreated with sound and light effects so that divers can live different experiences and explore apartments, cars or game rooms under the protection of 56 cameras. All in water at a constant temperature of 30 degrees.
A whole new attraction here!
