Penguin Ice Adventure
Our brand new under-water Ice Adventure arrives in spring 2014! You’ll be able to come face-to-face with a colony of Gentoo Penguins and adventure in to the rarely seen Antarctic landscape. You can marvel at the cheeky antics of our new feathered friends, as they dive beneath the freezing waters and play in their icy home.
With indoor temperatures of 8 degrees Celsius you’ll need to wrap up warm, although the playful penguins will feel right at home. Hear the unmistakable trumpeting sound of the Gentoo and learn about their quirky antics.
Touch the iced environment that the penguins call home and give your best imitations of a penguin waddle.
Our penguins, which are classified as near-threatened on the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature) Red List, will travel half the way around the world to play and swim in their brand new, specially built home. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter to find out more!
