Newport Aquarium adding Shark Bridge

The Newport Aquarium is adding a feature called Shark Bridge for the 2015 season, the only suspension bridge in North America on which visitors can walk just inches above nearly two dozen lurking sharks.

The bridge is scheduled to open in mid-April — a 100-foot-long, V-shaped rope bridge suspended over the waters of the Surrounded by Sharks exhibit’s 385,000-gallon tank.

Shark Bridge will offer an exclusive adventure and unique perspective of walking closely atop seven species of sharks, four rare and exotic shark rays, multiple stingrays and more than 300 fish.
