INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — The world’s first and only shark bridge exhibit is now open at the Newport Aquarium in Kentucky.

Paula the penguin joined Dave Barras on 24-Hour News 8 to share what visitors can look forward to.

Animal Ambassador Ric Urban said there is over four miles of bridge that is above a 385,000 gallon shark tank. The bridge gets you just inches to the action.

The new exhibit opened to the public on April 30.
