    Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin is an awe-inspiring penguin attraction at SeaWorld that is due to open this Spring.

    Guests will immerse themselves in a first of its kind family adventure ride and walk among penguins as they explore the penguin colony, both above and below their chilly world.

    Take a look at an exclusive, behind-the-scenes look at the creative process of animation that will give you a glimpse of the incredible story of Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin’s lead character, PuckTM, a young Gentoo penguin.

    A thumbs down from me. Sounds like the same thing is going to happen here as did the manatees - you have to go on the ride to see the penguins :unsure:
    We used to love the underwater viewing for the manatees and would spend quite some time with them. Now you only get to see them if you stand in line for the movie, there are about 50 people in there with you and you get a few minutes then move on.
    We aren't big on rides so it definately takes something away from our experience.

    That said, I used to love the Shark Encounter when you had that "Oooh, aaargh" moment as the screens were withdrawn allowing you to see the sharks in the tank. :yes:
    It seems a bit rushed now as the moving walkway takes you through fairly quickly, no doubt to prevent a build up of visitors though.
