Penguins exhibit won’t be coming to Ripley’s Aquarium after all

Ripley’s Aquarium in Myrtle Beach won’t be hosting a penguin exhibit this year after all.

Though some renovations are moving forward, they don’t include building a spot for the planned penguin exhibit, which initially was expected to debut in June.

“The penguins will not be coming,” Ripley’s spokeswoman Bethany Marshall said. “Because so many other of the aquariums have penguins, we are just finding a way to be different.”
