BTS Tour – Polk Penguinarium

In Video by Patrick

Membership has it advantages. I think I stole that, but I am going to use it anyway. The Detroit Zoo is opening a brand new facility to house their penguin population and we were invited to the grand opening ahead of the public. This facility is really impressive and to be allowed in before the public was quite a treat. Above is a go pro tour of the penguinarium:

Boasting state of the art 4D video screens, you are immersed in the adventure while feeling the cold air and feeling the ocean mist as you travel down the deck to the viewing areas. The new facility is 33,000-square-foot and has a 326,000-gallon, 25-foot-deep aquatic area where visitors can watch as more than 80 penguins of four species explore their habitat.

The stars of the show seem very happy to be in their new habitat. Highly recommended!
