My
family and I were all very impressed indeed with the penguin ice adventure. The viewing areas were perfect for adults and
children alike. We especially enjoyed when we were watching the penguins
actually swimming under the water. Both my 7year old and 17month old enjoyed
every minute of watching them in and out of the water. The enclosure seemed
very realistic to where I think penguins would be in the wild. After speaking
to members of staff they told us how they had made the enclosure as near to
being in the wild, from the lighting to the temperature. In
one word ‘amazing’. Both of my children and myself and husband loved watching
them. It was lovely to see them all follow each other in and out the water and
even interact with us up the glass when they saw the colour blue.Definitely
excellent value. The cost of the family ticket would be perfect for us. I would
go and visit the centre again and have already recommended. Overall we all loved being there. The
penguins were beautiful creatures and it was lovely to actually get so close to
them in what seems very near to their natural environment. The staff were very
informative. We asked lots of question and they knew every answer and told us
more facts about the penguins. We were very excited about going to see the
penguins and the rest of the sealife centre and we definitely weren’t disappointed.
All the way home my oldest daughter was talking about how much she’d enjoyed
herself. We will for sure being going back to see the penguins. Kim

We
were all really exciting about visiting the new penguins at the Seal Life
Centre. The viewing area was great.
There was loads of room to see the penguins. There were 4 large windows. One
overlooked the ground area, where you could see the penguins jump out of the
water; they actually came right up towards the glass so you could have a good
look at them. The second window went down below the water level. Just enough to
see them swim. The third window was underwater. You could easily see the
penguins gliding along through the water. It was amazing watching them do this.
The last window was at the bottom where you could see the whole length of their
living area. There were 2 other windows that were towards the end of the Seal
Life centre. You could see the penguins swimming towards you through these. Their enclosure was great. The penguins
looked very happy. I absolutely loved
the penguins. Up close they are so silky and adorable. It does offer value for money. The kids did
not stop talking about them afterwards. I
would love to go and see them again especially if they had some small baby
penguins. There were a few there but they looked the same size as the others. I have already recommended this attraction to
friends. We loved our time at the Seal
Life Centre, viewing the penguins. The
Penguins are absolutely adorable. Every single member of staff working there
knew everything about them too. They were lovely and friendly and made us feel
very welcome. Kerry Baldwin – Courtney &

This
is Amazing! The penguins are beautiful and comical. The staff were friendly and
informative. The viewing areas are great.
Nice big windows (4 in total) to
get a good view. I thought the Penguin
enclosure would be bigger, but penguins seemed happy. The penguins are beautiful and their
behaviour is amazing to watch. I fell in love with these birds. Our family and friends enjoyed a great day at
the Sea Life Centre. There was a lot to see and do for all ages. Well worth the
price. I would definitely consider
visiting again. Would most certainly recommend. A great day out for all the family and we
loved it. Helen Hounslow – Connie 8
