In a city full of attractions and theme parks, one thing Orlando has been lacking is a quality aquarium. With the opening this week of SEA LIFE Aquarium, that is no longer the case.
We had the chance to check it out during a recent media preview, and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
Upon entering SEA LIFE, you pass a photo op area. Photos taken here will later be digitized into CGI settings like being underwater with fish, then ready for purchase at the end of the attraction. You then enter a cute round theater, with a video running on the ceiling.
Earlier tonight during dinner, the aquarium at the T-Rex Cafe in Downtown Disney burst open.
The round aquarium centerpiece is surrounded by tables, which had to be cleared quickly when water suddenly came pouring out.
Witnesses say restaurant employees were very efficient at handling the catastrophe, and several even climbed inside the tank, attempting to save some of the fish. Thankfully, no one was injured.
No word on when the aquarium will be repaired, but officials say the restaurant will be open for business as usual.
Here is a short video somebody shot of the incident:
