Building Penguin Paradise

The Gentoo Penguins are always looking for things to get into.
BuBuilding Penguin Paradise tells the behind-the-scenes story of SeaWorld Orlando's daring attempt to build the most ambitious penguin attraction in the world. With only 18 months to finish and no room for error, these engineers embark on an audacious feat to replicate one of the harshest natural environments on the planet -- Antarctica. The manmade habitat includes 45-foot-hight ice cliffs, freezing conditions, closer-than-ever animal encounters and a palatial home for more than 200 penguins.
