River dwellers and sea creatures all coexist peacefully at Newport Aquarium, a watery haven dedicated to creating fun, exciting, and memorable experiences. Here, visitors do more than have staring contests with fish—interactive exhibits allow guests to touch some of the most exotic animals in the world, and acrylic tunnels give the sensation of being right in the tank themselves. Read on to discover a few of the aquarium's engaging attractions.
Seahorses: Unbridled Fun
Opening in April 2016, Unbridled Fun is an interactive exhibit featuring ten species of sea horses, sea dragons, pipefish, and more. Specially-designed viewing tanks allow visitors to get up-close-and-personal with the animals, and a rare video demonstrates and explains the species's unique behavior.
At Shark Bridge, guests can walk inches above nearly two dozen sharks on a 75-foot-long V-shaped rope bridge that is suspended over the open water of the Surrounded by Sharks exhibit.
Surrounded by Sharks
Guests explore acrylic tunnels throughout the 385,000 gallon exhibit while seven species of sharks, including the rare Shark Rays, swim all around them.
At the touch tank, aquarium staff teach the secret two-finger technique that bold guests can use to actually touch sharks.
Kids scale a special jungle gym to peek into frog tanks only viewable from that secret spot. They can play a giant version of the video game Frogger controlled with their feet and press on frog statues to hear how they sing.
