Dinner for patrons at a Disney restaurant in Orlando, Fla., didn’t go as planned Monday after an aquarium burst open, sending water gushing throughout the dining area.
“A seal failed on the tank causing water to leak,” Landry’s, the company that owns the T-Rex Cafe in Downtown Disney, said in a statement to the Orlando Sentinel. “Employees took action and did a great job rescuing all of the marine life, caring for our guests and managing the situation.”

According to Landry’s, “The marine life has been moved to holding tanks and the restaurant is open for business as usual.”
Video posted online showed water shooting out of the aquarium as employees directed customers outside the restaurant.
“There was a lot of commotion,” witness Kate Wallace told the Orlando Sentinel. “The whole section just sort of went crazy.”
