Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin Add to Park Planner Remove from Park Planner

Brace yourself for the cold as you explore the Antarctic from a penguin’s point of view on this immersive family ride. Waddle, slide and swim with Puck the penguin to discover how he survives the bitter cold of the South Pole. Spectacular light displays mimic what penguins experience in Antarctica, while the gentle movement of the ride mimics Puck swimming in the ocean. As Puck re-joins his colony on land, you’re spun around to face a real life colony of 250 penguins in a snowy, rocky habitat.
