Penguins: Backstage Pass

Get up-close, Learn about, and Interact with African Black-footed Penguins!

The Penguins: Backstage Pass is a fun and educational 30-minute experience where guests have the opportunity to interact with penguins in an up-close and personal setting.

Led by an experienced penguin biologist, a typical visit may include a chance to touch the penguins, see them waddle, swim, shake their tails and jump in and out of their interaction pool. While there, our biologist will describe and answer any questions guests might have about these remarkable birds and their specialized care.

Guests may also catch a glimpse of penguin feeding habits as our biologists feed them their favorite foods.

These South African Birds live in a temperate environment in the "Penguin Suite" so no coats are needed.
