The lighting in the Penguin Encounter mimics the natural light cycle in Antarctica, letting the penguins know when it is time to breed. This means that during the summer, the Penguin Encounter will be completely dark!
Learn about penguins and our Penguin Encounter at one of our Penguin Presentations. Check the park map for presentation times.
