There’s a new exhibit open at the Newport Aquarium in celebration of its 20th anniversary.
Jim Henson’s Splash and Bubbles Reeftown Adventure is now open and provides an indoor space for kids to play and learn as they explore environments from the popular kids’ TV show, “Splash and Bubbles.”
The aquarium also recently announced that now through Feb. 28, 2019, families can get one free child admission with
each full price adult ticket.
ABOUT THE EXHIBIT
Jim Henson’s Splash and Bubbles Reeftown Adventure includes Coral Cove, a three level play structure, and
Kelp Forest, where kids can color their own fishy friends before setting them loose digitally into the animated world of Splash and Bubbles.
As they explore and learn about our One Big Ocean and the animals that call it home and ocean conservation, kids can also become a Reeftown Ranger, just like in the show.
“As we start our 20th Anniversary year, it’s inspiring to think about the millions of visitors who have built special connections at Newport Aquarium.” Said Eric Rose, Newport Aquarium’s
Executive Director. “This new experience gives us even more opportunities to help parents
teach their little ones that it’s fun to learn about animals and important to protect our oceans.”
Newport Aquarium, named one of the top 10 U.S. aquariums in 2017 by USA Today’s 10Best.com, one of the top U.S. aquariums in 2016 by Leisure Group Travel, and has showcased thousands of animals from around the world in a million gallons of water since 1999. It is located just across the Ohio River from Cincinnati in Newport Ky. at Newport on the Levee.
