Draper — The Loveland Living Planet Aquarium lifted its new 40-foot, 26,000-pound shark tunnel through the roof and into the new aquarium Wednesday.
The tunnel, which is made of six and a half-inch thick Plexiglas, will allow visitors to walking beneath the aquarium’s sharks as they swim above. Several new species of sharks will be living at the aquarium when it opens in December.
“Nearly a full year’s construction has been accomplished to allow this milestone in the aquarium to be achieved,” said founder Brent Anderson. “Soon visitors will be able to ‘walk under the ocean’ and view several species of sharks cruising overhead.”
The Sandy location of The Living Planet Aquarium closed Sept. 10, and the new building at 12033 Lone Peak Parkway in Draper is scheduled to open in mid-December.
The new facility has larger habitats for the animals, more room for visitors, a new theater and meeting rooms that can be rented out for private and corporate events.
