CLEVELAND — The Greater Cleveland Aquarium has invited guests to visit for the first time or to return this summer to enjoy what it calls a “major upgrade.”

A new Giant Pacific Octopus lives there now and several other exhibits have seen changes.

The Lakes & Rivers exhibit has been turned into a rainforest with brooks and waterfalls and new interactive activities teach kids about conservation.

Added to the reptile exhibits are salamanders, newts and snakes, and there’s an expanded turtle exhibit.

The Greater Cleveland Aquarium is now under the ownership of Jacobs Entertainment, Inc., which owns and operates the Nautica complex.

“There is great potential in the aquarium and in the synergies available on the West Bank,” said Pat McKinley, Executive Vice President of Jacobs Investments. “We are excited to be part of the aquarium and are committed to its continued success.”

“We see oceans of possibilities for enhancing the guest’s experience,” said Tami Brown, General Manager of the Greater Cleveland Aquarium. “From new marine life and interactive exhibits to a complete nautical visit at the FirstEnergy Powerhouse complex, there are now more ways to create the ultimate entertainment destination for families in Northeast Ohio and beyond.”
