SeaWorld has added a new tour to compliment their newest attraction, Antarctica Empire of the Penguins. I recently was invited by SeaWorld to experience the tour.
The approximate 45 minute experience begins with an introduction to Antarctica and the penguins.
Then journey backstage to meet one of the Aviculturalists and learn about the care, feeding and even breeding of the penguins. With almost 250 penguins, Seaworld keeps track of everything from who they pair up with, when they hatched, molting, and much more.
While all the information was fascinating, I couldn't wait to get to actually see the penguins up close and actually pet one. Once inside the habitat I found it fascinating to watch the penguins, they are quite inquisitive. Our time inside the habitat was about 15 minutes! I could have stayed longer, but then I usually can when it comes to wildlife.
If you love Penguins, be sure to include this in your schedule!
You do not get to ride the attraction, Antarctica: Empire of the Penguins as part of the tour.
The penguin habitat is 30 degrees Fahrenheit. I brought a fleece hat and jacket to wear (even tho it was 90 degrees outside) and was quite comfortable. Many of the others on my tour were shivering.
Seasonal price starting at $59 ages 10 and up, $39 ages 3-9 plus tax. Pass Members save 10% by booking online or calling 1-888-800-5447.
Would love to hear your thoughts once you've taken the tour!
DISCLAMIER: I was a guest of SeaWorld Orlando and did not pay for the tour.
