Located at the base of the CN Tower, Ripley’s Entertainment Inc. has begun construction of their new $130-Million public aquarium in Toronto. This 135,000-square foot world-class Aquarium project, opened during the fall of 2013, will feature 1.5-million gallons of marine and freshwater habitats displaying species from across the world.
Ardurra provided the detailed aquatic life support system design and engineering services and is currently providing construction support for the project.
Featuring more than 13,500 exotic sea and freshwater creatures, comprising more than 450 species, the Aquarium will be home to a large variety of inhabitants. Highlighting the Aquarium is a unique 315 foot moving walkway through an acrylic tunnel deep below the 750,000-gallon Shark Lagoon, an exhibit occupied by 10 to 12-foot sand tiger sharks, large tooth sawfish and dozens of other species.
