'Scary' Video of World's Deepest Pool Shows Sunken City at the Bottom

A video showing the world's deepest pool has gained over 38 million views with viewers drubbing the inside-peek "creepy."

TikTok user @abdulla_alsenaani shared the video last week, writing: "I'm about to dive in the deepest swimming pool in the world." The video begins with what appears like any ordinary indoor pool, with tiled decor and spa-like features.

However, the pool is clearly a lot darker than most and when the camera is dipped into it, all becomes clear. The footage showed an incredibly deep pool, with an underworld replica city inside, complete with rubble, stairs and doors.

"As a diver I look forward to discovering the thrilling underwater unknown world down under, its sort of a therapy for me as it helps me disconnect and free my mind," said video creator Abdulla Alsenaani to Newsweek.

The pool documented is actually Deep Dive Dubai, holder of the Guinness World Record for the world's deepest swimming pool for diving.

Deep Dive Dubai has a depth of 60.02 meters and holds 14 million liters of water. The pool boasts a sunken abandoned city for divers to explore. Later videos shared by the travel TikToker showed the finer details of the pool, including abandoned cars, snooker tables and even huge windows into actual rooms from the rest of the building the pool is in. Levels of the city even include an apartment, a garage and an arcade.

"At the Deep Dive Dubai pool I had the incredible experience to dive into this unexpected mini interactive city which no other pool in the world allowed me to," said Alsenaani. "The deeper I dived the more interesting and exciting it was getting and it was real fun being able to ride a bicycle and play pool underwater.

"The deepest I dove was 20 meters deep and I hope that on my next visit I can attempt to go even deeper."

The pool even has sound and mood lighting to add to the effect, along with a very complex filtration system for the water. The water is filtered and circulated every six hours with a siliceous volcanic rock, as well as NASA-developed technology and UV radiation.

The pool opened in June this year, and the building it's in has plans to open a diving shop, gift shop and a restaurant later in the year.

Earning a Guinness World Record is nothing new for the city of Dubai however, with an array of records belonging to it. The Palm Fountain is officially the largest water fountain in the world, while the Burj Khalifa is the tallest building along with the city hosting the tallest hotel and restaurant in the world too.

"I shared my videos hoping that whoever sees it may want to try it as well at least once in a lifetime as a bucket list must do, I know I enjoyed it and I will go back soon for sure," said Alsenaani.

The deep pool is impressive, but many online have simply found it scary after gaining a peak through the TikTok video.

"So scary, I don't even want to finish the video," wrote one user.

"That's not a pool, that's a nuclear reactor," commented another.

One TikTok user even compared it to the upside down from Netflix's Stranger Things: "I would never," they added.

Although the pool may give off eerie vibes, that's its sole purpose. It serves as a home for free divers to explore and beginners to learn to dive, rather than a day at the pool with inflatables.
