Visitors will get the chance to meet a loveable “waddle” or group of African Rock Penguins up close and personal. During this once-in-a-lifetime experience, you’ll be able to view these special creatures both on land and in the water. The penguins live, eat, sleep, swim and play in their state-of-the-art 2500 gallon habitat that is temperature and humidity controlled just to their liking.

After meeting these adorable creatures, head on over to other exhibit areas for some hands-on fun! The OMNI Theater is featuring a special film, “Penguins.” Narrated by David Attenborough, “Penguins” celebrates the destiny of a very special King Penguin, who returns to his birthplace in the sub-Antarctic.
