Construction has been progressing a bit faster at the Ripley’s Aquarium of Canada site in downtown Toronto. A few weeks ago, they began to install the acrylic panels for the walk-through shark exhibit. It looks as though everything is on track for the Spring/Summer 2013 opening. Check out a few photos and facts below:

  • The acrylic panels were specially made in Japan at the Nippura Company, as they are the most trusted and qualified supplier to produce panels of the highest quality
