Penguin ride launch
TRAVEL in a raft through a sub-Antarctic environment and get close to a spectacular colony of king and gentoo penguins at SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium.
This first-of-its-kind penguin exhibit, due to open in November, is inspired by Macquarie Island – an Australian-owned island in the Pacific Ocean.
Explorers (guests) will be surrounded by penguins and a flurry of snow, whistling winds and the stunning southern lights, before arriving at the Macquarie Is- land Explorer Hut. Here they can observe these creatures on land and under water and learn more about life on the remote island.
Merlin Entertainment’s Rob Smith said: “The ride allows guests to make amazing discoveries about life on Macquarie Island, the different personalities of cheeky gentoo and majestic king penguins, and how we all can play a role in protecting their futures.” It offers a sensory and educational journey. We are giving away 40 prize packs in total to SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium’s Penguin Expedition, including one premium Merlin Annual Pass for a family of four (2 adults + 2 children) and one glass bottom boat tour with shark feed for a family of four (2 adults + 2 children).
