Dare to cross Shark Bridge the world’s first suspended rope bridge where guests can walk just inches above sharks, shark rays and other aquatic animals. This V-shaped rope bridge is 75-feet long and is suspended over the open water of the 385,000 gallon Surrounded By Sharks exhibit. Shark Tank Overlook offers guests a top-side view of one of the largest open-air viewing tanks in the country. Walk along the top edge of the tank and see how many of the sharks, shark rays, stingrays and fish you can count. If you’re lucky you might catch Denver the loggerhead sea turtle as he comes to the surface to take a breath.
Shark Bridge is constructed of more than 4 miles of rope and 1.5 tons of steel.
It took nearly 1,000 labor hours for fabrication, building and installation.
Shark Bridge can hold the weight of 2 male African elephants – about 20,000 pounds!
