    Large fish tank cracks open at Disney restaurant:
    Must-see: Large fish tank cracks open at Disney restaurant | www.wftv.com


    Several guests were enjoying dinner when a large fish tank broke at the T-REX Cafe at Downtown Disney on Monday evening.
    One of the guests was able to capture cellphone video of some of the incident.
    The large cylinder-shaped aquarium appeared to have cracked open down the side, causing water to gush out into the restaurant.

    When you have a vertical seams that run the height of the aquarium.. you can't make those kinds of choices.

    At least it wasn't the Coral Reef Restaurant.

    A well designed display aquarium like that will have enough space at the bottom to accommodate enough water for the fish to survive should a failure like this occur. I have seen cracks appear in much larger aquariums and to say it was a little nerve racking would be an understatement. I never saw a failure though.

    Yeah all the fish were saved, which is good.

    And tanks like that can crack any time, anywhere. it was just a freak accident.

    From what I heard, the restaurant staff handled the whole situation well from the get-go. They comped a LOT of meals.

    Kind of feel bad for the guests who got soaked but at the same time it's kind of funny and makes for a great story to tell.

    From what I heard everyone was fine and that they were able to save the fishes supposedly. So, that's good! However, I wonder why it exactly happened. Of course, we know it cracked on the side, but tanks can just give like that sometimes? I just went to the T-Rex two days ago and sat in the exact same spot. Freaky.
