Yesterday city officials revealed details of the tricked-out shark tank coming to the Coney Island Aquarium, part of the $150 million revamp planned for the space. The “Ocean Wonders: Sharks!” complex will hold more than 100 species of sharks, sting rays, sea turtle sharks and other sea creatures. Visitors will be able to walk under the 500,000 gallon tank to see everything swimming around them. Sounds awesome! Curbed reported yesterday that the funding for the project was partially complete. The groundbreaking is scheduled for October with a grand opening in 2015. Other details of the renovation include a roof deck, cafe and a coral reef tunnel.
