Seagaia Ocean Dome
Ocean Dome, was a part of the Sheraton Seagaia Resort and cost $2bn to build. It produced excellent quality surfing waves every 2 minutes and is widely regarded as the best artificial surfing experience developed to date.
It utilised a pneumatic vacuum system designed by Mitsubishi Heavy Industries.
It opened in 1993 and visitor numbers peaked in 1995 at 1.25 million a year.
The Ocean Dome was officially closed on October 1, 2007 as part of a renovation and partial re-branding of the resort.
The next generation of pneumatic waves has now arrived with the computer technology to support a far more commercially exciting surfing experience...
