NEWPORT, Ky. – Time is running out for Newport Aquarium guests to see in person two extremely rare albino American alligators and to take advantage of one of the aquarium’s best offers of the year.

Snowball and Snowflake – two of less than 100 white alligators in the world – will be moved off exhibit the evening of Feb. 28, 2014, in preparation for their return to Wild Adventures Water & Theme Park in Valdosta, Ga.

Additionally, Feb. 28 represents the last day for guests to take advantage of Newport Aquarium’s Winter Family Days special, when two children 12 and under are admitted FREE* with the purchase of one non-discounted adult ticket.

No matter how frosty the weather is outside, Newport Aquarium’s climate-controlled indoor facility is always a comfortable 74 degrees, providing guests a safe and fun entertainment option year round. There is always more new to see and do at Newport Aquarium:

  • Surrounded by Sharks – Guests can walk through a 385,000-gallon tank filled with rare and exotic shark ray, as well as tiger sharks, zebra sharks, stingrays, and a curious 200-pound loggerhead sea turtle named Denver.
  • Gator Alley – Showcasing eight species from four continents, Gator Alley is one of the most diverse collections of crocodilians in the country. It’s also the home of Mighty Mike – who at 14 feet and 800 pounds is the biggest and baddest alligator in the country outside of Florida.
  • Kroger Penguin Palooza – With five different species, it boasts one of the most diverse collections of cold-weather penguins in the country.
  • Frog Bog – The Frog Bog is the largest exhibit of its kind in the Midwest with nearly 20 species of exotic frogs. Children can find secret frog tanks visible only when they climb through tunnels and tubes in our kids-only Frog Bog jungle gym.
  • Jellyfish Gallery – With more than 100 jellyfish on display, guests can marvel at the largest and coolest jellyfish exhibit in the Midwest.
