  • Such a beautiful little aquarium/zoo for penguin lovers! I really felt like I was able to get in touch and close to the amazing penguins there. We were able to watch the feeding time shows where they feed the different kinds of penguins and tell fun facts about them!
  • The place maybe a little smaller than expected. But the amount of penguins they have are plenty and amazing. We had teenagers and they enjoyed themselves very much
