Fun For All The Family

Adventure Trail

Take part in the Adventure Quiz Trail (subject to availability). Pick up your booklet at the beginning of your journey and answer questions as you wander around the displays.

Kids’ Play Zone

Specifically designed for under 10’s, the underwater themed kids’ play zone featuring a wobbly walk way and ‘spring rocker’ penguin is situated next to the underwater penguin windows and jellyfish displays. Also within this area is a food and drinks kiosk allowing parents to sit back, relax and enjoy some ‘me time’ as the little nippers burn off some energy!

Biggest Characters

On your underwater adventure through the waters of the world, look out for the Oceanarium’s biggest personalities, including Mo & Branston (Pickle) the otters, Bob the pig-nose turtle and Biscuit, Chile, Cobblebot and the rest of the penguin gang.

Check out all the favourites here along with the quirky traits.

Penguins of the World

Children can measure themselves up against the Penguins of the World height chart to find out what species of penguin they’d be. Don’t forget to look out for Humbug the giant penguin while up on Bay View Terrace and share your photos with him at #bournemouthpenguin
