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.

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.
