    Marineland about to make a $6M splash with Arctic-themed water feature

    No Comments

    From Niagara This Week:

    Marineland is set to open a multimillion-dollar, two-acre, Arctic-themed splash pad.

    Polar Splash, which cost approximately $6 million to build and is located across from Friendship Cove, features 10 kid-friendly water slides along with 150 themed sprayers and jets designed to look like realistic dolphins, sea lions, belugas, walruses and polar bears.

    It allows visitors to play in an “immersive environment” filled with icebergs and a grotto, said Marineland officials.

    I have a regular blog visitor who is quite a fan of Marineland and he often sends me some notes of what he sees. Here are some of his comments/observations from a recent trip:

    • Kiska is not pregnant, confirmed by staff, trainers and tank supervisor. Kiska is only lapping around her tank, gained some weight but NOT pregnant
    • MLC employees know nothing of Shouka rumor (check the May 22 news item on orcahome)
    • Tofino and Charmin (belugas) sent to stadium, performing in show once training is finished later this year
    • No beluga pregnancies confirmed yet
    • Eve, Neva, Charlotte and Mira , who are turning 3 (not Eve, she is 3 going on 4) this year are now at Friendship Cove, as part of weaning process from mothers.
    • Dock (sea lion) is presumed dead (Check MLC Fans)
    • Skyla’s calf still unnamed; Jubilee’s calf also un-named
