Georgia Aquarium transforms into North Pole

Posted: Updated:
ATLANTA (CBS46) -

Visitors to the Georgia Aquarium on Tuesday will notice more than fish… try an igloo!

Ice sculptors were building the five-foot-tall igloo in the atrium out of 9,000 pounds of ice Tuesday morning.

Once finished, visitors will be able to look inside and see Mission Control from Arthur Christmas, a new movie that opens Wednesday.

Several kids, along with Falcons player Jonathan Babineaux, also helped in the construction.

The igloo will be on display until mid-afternoon Tuesday.

The Georgia Aquarium begins its holiday festivities Thursday.
