RPT was proud to play a part in the latest edition to the Sea Life family located in Auburn Hills, Michigan at the Great Lakes Crossing Outlets shopping center. The 35,000 square foot facility, now the largest aquarium in the state, holds a total of 150,000 gallons of water. Within its colorfully lit depths there are some 5,000 specimens of underwater life to delight visitors. The ample variety of creatures includes rays, sharks, eels, lionfish, and lobster to name only a few.
The largest viewing area at Sea Life is the nearly 30-foot-long underwater tunnel that takes visitors inside the main tank. The tunnel is comprised of three separate sections of R-Cast® that were value-engineered to perform visually as one—while costing significantly less. The completed feature offers crystal-clear views of the rays, blacktip sharks, and hammerhead sharks that so many come to see.
The facility also contains an eleven-foot-long, seven-foot-high demi-tunnel that was designed to provide concave views inside the main tank, allowing for clear impressions of the shipwreck and sunken Mayan statue features. Such details make Sea Life a true experience, providing for guests to see the animals interact within a wide variety of environmental accents
