Penguin Encounters at Brookfield Zoo

3300 Golf Road 1 Jul 2019 11:00 - 31 Dec 2019 14:00

Get up close and personal with the penguins at Brookfield Zoo!

Guests can waddle like a penguin over to Brookfield Zoo's Living Coast exhibit and choose to participate in a behind-the-scenes Penguin Encounter, which is offered daily at 11:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.

Escorted by animal care staff, resident Humboldt penguins waddle into the room and “mingle” with guests for 45 minutes.

The Penguin Encounter costs $40 per person and is offered year-round. The encounter only allows 20 guests per time slot and reservations are required. Participants must be at least 5 years old, and an adult must accompany children between ages 5 and 18. Reservations can be made online or in the Coast Gift Shop next to the exhibit.
