Ocean Tunnel Being Installed Inside SEA LIFE Orlando

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!
