Penguin Playground

Explore a world unlike any other in Penguin Playground and marvel as the majestic King and cheeky Gentoo Penguins slip and slide across the snow-covered ice.

Wonder at the penguins as they get up to mischief and splash about in the Penguin pool; experience a closer look from the special underwater viewing area. The speed of our cute Gentoo Penguins is sure to impress as they swim up to 36km per hour!

Interactive displays and stunning visuals will entertain and educate on everything there is to know about our Penguins natural environment - the coldest, windiest and driest continent in the world.  Be amazed as the Penguin Playground exhibit replicates the seasons and light cycles of Antarctica with temperatures ranging from -10 degrees to 5 degrees.
