Here’s what else you can expect this summer at Newport Aquarium:
The Summer of Sharks
Discover why Newport Aquarium is the Shark Capital of the Midwest during Shark Summer! See sharks like never before when you cross over the open waters of the Surrounded by Sharks exhibit on Shark Bridge.
Experience what it feels like to touch six different shark species in Shark Central – including our brand NEW Japanese Bullhead Sharks.Then, get nose-to-nose with sharks when they swim next to you and above you as you venture through more than 80 feet of acrylic tunnels.
See dozens of sharks up-close, including sand tigers, sand bars, black tips and nurse sharks, shark rays and more! Newport Aquarium currently features more than 15 shark species from oceans around the world.
Last year, Newport Aquarium opened Stingray Hideaway, and this exhibit is a must for Cincy kids! Stingray Hideaway: Enter their World includes a 17,000-gallon stingray touchpool and a 30-foot tunnel for guests of all ages to enjoy an interactive experience unlike any other in North America.
Stingray Hideaway offers a tropical getaway experience for everyone. Guests of all sizes can interact with stingrays at the tank’s different height levels, there’s a smaller touch tank of epaulette sharks provides a touch experience for even the smallest guests, and a 30-foot tunnel that lets guests experience the stingrays from below, and the pop-up area allows them to enter their world with a 360-degree view.
Ring of Fire
This brand-new exhibit explores the volatile, fire-meets-water ecosystem of the Giant Pacific Octopus, and is educational and visually stunning! Definitely worth a visit with the kids this summer.
