Treat Dad to an Adventure this Father’s Day


Are you still looking for a special way to celebrate D-A-D this Father’s Day? How about a BBQ hosted by penguins?

New in 2018, Dads visiting Adventure Aquarium can experience a truly unique Father’s Day with an outdoor BBQ in our all-new Penguin Park as well as have complete access to 8,500 aquatic species as they explore the underwater world with their families.

We were really trying to think of a unique way to honor the important men in the lives of our guests for Father’s Day.  We also wanted to bring the fun outside to our new Penguin Park exhibit so the idea to host a BBQ for families was born!  Really, how cool is it to dine and dance right near our African penguins?


The event will take place on Sunday, June 17, 2018 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM in Penguin Park.  Tickets, which are on sale now, are $44.99 for adults (age 13+) and $34.99 for children (Ages 2-12), and include full aquarium admission, 3D movie and Shark Bridge.  Plus, dine on a buffet the entire family can enjoy with tasty all you can eat barbecue, like delicious hamburgers, hot dogs, chicken, salads and more.  As always, kids under the age of 2 receive free admission with an accompanying adult.


A DJ dance party to entertain kids of all ages is planned as guests will dance and dine alongside the aquarium’s colony of African penguins.  Love watching those adorable penguins waddle, swim and play? Then visit Penguin Island during the Father’s Day event, home to Adventure Aquarium’s largest colony of African penguins in its history, including the newest additions –”Philly Special” juvenile males Carson and Nick along with females Taco and Shelley. Staff can even point out their proud papa penguins on exhibit too!


Younger guests can spend time learning through play in Explorers Cove, the nautical-themed playground in Penguin Park, equipped with a soft play pirate ship, hammerhead shark, octopus, sea stars and more while dads and moms relaxes nearby.

We don’t want any Dad to spend his special day behind the grill.  So let us do the work for you! And the best part? No cleanup!

Guests interested in attending the Father’s Day BBQ event can visit for more information or to purchase tickets.
