I don't know where you heard that, but that is 100% not true.

Personally I think that would be more difficult than said. In order to replace any glass you'd need to drain all the water in the exhibit and relocate the penguins for a good amount of time. With Summer Nights coming up soon, I figure they will just keep the nets up until aviculture fixes the issue via training.

It stated that in a news article, that the penguins were very desperate to escape and were sneaking out under the net. The news could just be hearing rumors, but they quoted a worker at the park saying that I believe. I'll keep looking for the link.

Geez, I wish people wouldn't assume that the ride ops/education/photo are experts with the penguin situations. We don't even touch them. I wish they would get their information from the aviculturists so we wouldn't have this misinformation issue. >.>

It's too bad to hear all these reviews of the new ride. I wonder how long until they just let people go in to see the penguins instead of waiting for the ride portion.

The penguins are probably just going out for coffee. ;)

And, yes, without a link and a credible source, I'm taking this report with a grain of salt.

FINALLY found the link.http://www.orlandoparksnews.com/2013/06/antarctica-empire-of-penguin-and.html

Sadly, it turned out that the report of the penguins going underneath is in the comments, so I'll let you guys judge if it is a reliable source. It seems like it could be.

I'm not sure if "Orlando Theme Park News" is really a credible source. I mean, they have 600 Twitter followers. How legit can they be?
