A key element has been placed in the construction of Sea Life Orlando. Workers have installed the 360 degree ocean tunnel for the brand new 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 concept art below gives you a look at what the space will eventually look like:
Sea Life Orlando will offer a new wave of underwater adventures with displays of colorful fish, sharks, jellyfish, sea horses and more. Winding tunnels, floor-to-ceiling tanks, bubble aquariums and touch pools featuring more than 5,000 sea creatures from the oceans of the world provide an immersive experience for everyone. Additionally, the aquarium, will have unique educational components for young marine life enthusiasts.
