Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Centre at The Dubai Mall

The Dubai Mall has its Dubai Aquarium and Discovery Centre, developed and operated by Oceanis Australia Group, officially earned the Guinness World Record World's "Largest Acrylic Panel" (32.88 metres wide x 8.3 metres high x 750mm thick and weighing 245,614kg). The acrylic viewing panel outclassed Japan's Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium 22.5 metres wide x 8.2 metres high and 600 mm thick). Its 750 mm thick acrylic viewing panel can withstand pressure of 10 million litres of water used in the aquarium, but its transparency gives visitors clear views of over 33,000 marine animals on display. Adjudicator, John Pilley of Guinness World Record certified: "The Dubai Mall joins Dubai's illustrious list of World Records with the 'Largest Acrylic Panel', once again reiterating the can-do attitude of Dubai. This exemplifies the dedication and passion that make some of our best records." The Mall adopted an International Standard of Ethics and Animal Welfare Policy in its development and operation.
