SHARK TUNNEL PICTURES

To learn how to make this shark tunnel, and other tutorials, see the ZT2 Help Section's zt2 Tutorials, under Exhibit Building!!!

Flaws in this type of shark tunnel: LONG TIME TO MAKE!!!!; Guests don't like going through glass for the shark tunnel, but will walk on it if placed there, will sit down on chairs in tank and will walk out on their own if you use andrew12 shark tankwalls ere you plan the entrance to be; (don't change tankwalls after the tank is already made, it ruins everything) Sharks will go through the glass (no way to stop this unfortunately; just take pictures while they are not doing that :D ); the water is inside the tunnel :/

BENEFITS over other types: Sharks and other aquatics can swim underneath the tunnel! Objects can be placed on the elevated pathways. You can actually stand on the pathway to take pictures without sinking; you could theoretically make the ground of the pathway glass so you can see them under your feet; it looks better than other tunnels I've seen, in my opinion; more room for creativity with regards to path type and elevated path sides

SHARK CAGE

Flaws: Sometimes hard to get into. Sometimes the floor is solid and sometimes not, depends on angle of descent I guess. Unlike a real shark cage, it does not go up and down. However, you can redo the exhibit to have the cage in different positions to make it look like it is going down. To make it on ground level you don't need elevated paths, just use Sophie's dinosaur fence with the overhanging bars and place it at the bottom of the tank.

Benefits: EVERYTHING. It is awesome.

This is really amazing! I still don't see how it all works, but the possibilities of this technique seem endless. Really great work done!

Guests can walk on the shark tunnel!!!! (and exit if using Andrew12 walls) but they dont like entering, so you gotta place em in there.
