Event Details

Pints & Penguins is an adult-only sleepover event full of animal experiences, delicious bites, a full bar, and more!

Start your night off with appetizers and drinks, followed by a behind-the-scenes tour of the Aquarium. Sleep alongside the Aquarium’s African penguin colony in the Penguin Playhouse and wake up to a hot breakfast and penguin encounter.

Inspired by Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies’ sold-out Sips & Sharks events, Pints & Penguins is an even more intimate program, with limited capacity. Booking in advance is highly recommended.
