The acrylic tube eventually will give visitors an immersive view of the attraction’s sea creatures. The animals will be seen above, below and around them. The tunnel, now being installed by workers, weighs almost 9 tons.

Other elements of the attraction, which will house 5,000 aquatic inhabitants, will include touch pools, bubble tanks and floor-to-ceiling displays.
