Head to Adventure Aquarium's Hippo Haven to meet and witness Button and Genny, two massive Nile hippos (3,000 lbs each). Adventure Aquarium is the only Aquarium in the world with hippos on exhibit, and guests are provided a very unique view of these magnificent creatures, via our underwater viewing window where they frolic (really!), jump out of the water and press their snouts against the glass, going eye-to-eye with even our smallest visitors.
Make the most of your visit with our resources to help you learn about our incredible animals with blogs, videos, activities, and more.
