Located at the base of the CN Tower in downtown Toronto, Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada has been a resounding success since opening day, attracting millions of visitors annually. The two-level aquarium includes exhibits containing more than 1.5 million gallons (5.7 million litres) of water to create marine and freshwater habitats from around the world. These habitats feature more than 13,500 exotic sea and freshwater creatures. Prominent among these habitats is the 750,000 gallon (2.84 million litre) Shark Lagoon, which features a 315-foot (96-metre) long moving walkway through an acrylic tunnel.
