Earlier this week, workers begun to install the 360 degree ocean tunnel for SEA LIFE Orlando, the brand new underwater aquarium opening at I-Drive 360 next spring. The acrylic tunnel weighs almost 18,000 pounds, or as much as five cars, and will provide a new immersive way for guests to view marine life in their own habitats. The aquarium will also feature a 180 degree tunnel, floor to ceiling displays, bubble aquariums, and touch pools.
Here's an official photo of the ocean tunnel. It will definitely be a wonderful experience to go through it!:
The following rendering (which was released months ago) shows how the final product will look like:
SEA LIFE Orlando will feature more than 5,000 sea creatures from the oceans of the world, and will offer a great experience to the whole family. We hope to see you at I-Drive 360 early next year!
