South America’s largest aquarium is set to open in Rio de Janeiro on Nov. 9th. AquaRio will have 28 tanks with 8,000 animals, but the most intriguing feature might be its 650-foot underwater tunnel. The submerged glass tunnel will allow visitors to walk through a massive tank, getting face to fin with the underwater world. Looking for a unique hotel alternative? Guests will even be able to book a night sleeping in the giant tunnel for what is objectively the raddest slumber party ever. In addition to its many marine life attractions, the aquarium will also be home to a surf museum, science museum, and a touch tank where brave souls can touch sharks, stingrays, and various invertebrates.
