This appears to be an innovative penguin exhibit, and according to the aquarium's website the tunnel is a one-of-a-kind design that cuts through the 40,000 gallon pool. Along with the pop-up bubbles there is a major effort to allow visitors to get close to the aquatic birds, and since penguins are already immensely popular I bet that there are line-ups in the summer to enter the tunnel. Will the Ripley's Aquarium in Toronto (to be built at the base of the CN Tower) have the same style of penguin habitat?
