The penguins encounter was terrible. The whole experience is just a hug with penguin for a minute while a guy taking photos of you and the penguin USING FLASH. And then another few second with another kind of penguin just to take photo. You are not allowed to take photos, only the photographer and then they will sell them to... More

Our cards wouldn't... More

The experience is located inside the mall. We booked on the same day and went to the mall while we waited for our turn. It is very well organized and you get to touch, hug, and kiss a penguin. No pictures are allowed with the penguins, but they take plenty of pictures and are happy to sell them to you.... More
