B-Tank

Also included is the B-Tank, a massive pool with an equally huge green screen. Thanks to movie magic, this can stand in for "a beach, open ocean, a mossy pond, a giant reflection pool or anything else you can imagine" (according to the Paramount Studios website). The tank is 195 feet long, 176 feet wide, and 50 feet deep (with shallow ends on two sides) and contains 914,023 gallons of water. The green screen background is 61 feet high and 175.5 feet wide.
