Albany - One of the Flint Riverquarium's biggest attraction won't open on time. The         I-Werks theater in the Adventure Center, next to the Riverquarium, won't open until October because of a construction mistake.

Albany Tomorrow says the ceiling wasn't built high enough to hold massive screen. "We decided rather than open on time with a ceiling that was wrong and would detract from the visitor's experience, we would bite the bullet and make the needed corrections," said ATI President Tommy Chatmon.

ATI officials wouldn't say who was responsible for the mistake, but said the party will pay for construction changes and possible lost revenue caused by the delay.

The Flint Riverquarium will still open September 3, 2004.
