Newport Aquarium offers adults and children more to see and do during every visit like the brand new Penguin Palooza Exhibit which is home to more than 50 penguins. The world-class facility showcases thousands of animals from around the world in a million gallons of water, including Sweet Pea and Scooter, the ultra-rare shark rays. Each day begins with a special penguin parade, featuring one of the Aquarium's African penguins. There are dive shows, animal feedings and 'meet the biologist' sessions scheduled throughout the day. Other family activities and attractions include petting sharks, hand-feeding Lorikeets, and a virtual shark cage experience. The state-of-the-art facility is open 365 days/year and only two minutes from downtown Cincinnati at Newport on the Levee.
