Penguin Encounter

Penguin Interaction

Penguin Interaction is temporarily closed.

About the Exhibit

Following an educational briefing from one of our educators, you will enter a charming and chilly world where you’ll encounter more than 100 penguins of various types, including the regal king penguin. Join us and enjoy the show as our penguins waddle and swim among the rocky cliffs and icy water of this wonderfully realistic habitat.
