Don't miss the display of penguins outside the building. These birds are from warmer climates, and bask in the sunny San Diego weather. - Rob McCullough

Although this exhibit is getting a little older, especially when compared to the new Orlando attraction, it still offers a fascinating look into the world of the penguins. The ambiance inside the building(dark, cool, peaceful) is also a big plus. Sea World sure knows how to do exhibits. - Manny Barron

. - Steven D

The effect of this habitat is amazing, the temperature is lowered, sounds of wind constantly enhance the ambiance, and the lighting is kept at a constant twilight. These factors give a great idea of the habitat the Penguins live in. Also, of course, there are many penguins and several informative signs rounding out the experience. - Jack Borgeson
