ALL NEW ICE ADVENTURE FEATURING GENTOO PENGUINS NOW OPEN
Travel to the frozen extremities of the Antarctic and experience life with a family of real Gentoo penguins at the SEA LIFE London Aquarium this spring. These acrobats of the penguin world are taking up residence in ICE ADVENTURE - a brand new, major themed experience that will transport guests to a research station deep in the Antarctic.
As the temperature drops visitors will journey through an icy landscape full of fun interactive features. Look at the world through snow goggles, run your hands along a wall of real ice or dip your hands into freezing touch pools. Guests can even get a taste of polar 'white out' training as they explore a recreation of a remote ice station complete with authentic equipment donated by leading science and research organisation British Antarctic Survey. When they arrive in the penguin viewing ice cave, visitors will get a direct window into the habitat of the magical Gentoo penguin, both above and below land. As they dive beneath the water and play in their carefully created new home complete with real ice, guests will discover the challenges of life in the most inhospitable landscape on earth and the dangers its inhabitants face. They will also be able to meet some other Antarctic dwellers - a trio of Japanese Spider Crabs.
Weekend/Peak times open: 9am to 7pm. Last admission: 6pm.
