About Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin®

See the icy world of Antartica through the eyes of a penguin named Puck. Experience the beauty and grandeur of the South Pole through this adventurous ride. Antartica: Empire of the Penguin® is a trackless, motion-based simulator experience, and you may choose a "mild" or "wild" version of it for a different experience! Each room of this dark ride gets colder and colder, while displaying vibrant and dazzling colors. Once you've ventured through the ride, you'll visit the penguins' colony and experience the cool extremes of their icy world.
SeaWorld® Orlando's Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin® is one of the newest attractions of the park. That being said, expect consistently long lines and waits throughout the day. You should also be mindful that the queue is almost completely outside! For the shortest waits, jump in line for Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin® right as the park opens or before park closing. Going during a show is worth a try, also; the park usually slows down while shows are occurring.

This is one of Mommy Frog's favorite experiences of SeaWorld® Orlando! It's a relaxing and charming ride. The penguins are adorable, and of course, it's an awesome way to get out of the Florida heat for a while. The exhibit lets you view four species of penguins exploring their icy area. There are two versions you can choose from: the "mild" or "wild" version. The wild version features brief mild spinning. The spinning isn't anything to be too worried about; it doesn't make Mommy Frog's stomach uneasy, and she is the queasy frog of the family. The spinning is also brief! Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin® is a trackless, dark ride at SeaWorld® Orlando. The duration of the ride and exhibit is about 15 minutes, depending on how long you linger in the penguin exhibit. Each of the ride vehicles has two rows with four seats, carrying a total of 8 riders. Guests less than 48 inches tall must be accompanied by a supervising companion at least 14 years of age. To experience the wild version, guests must be at least 42 inches tall. Guests using wheelchairs should enter the standard queue and transfer into the ride vehicle or proceed into the exhibit via the non-rider entrance.
