Overall the zoo is great: it's clean, expansive, and educational. However, the Penguin Encounter is truly something unique and special. To be up close and personal with these creatures is not something you get to to do every day. Also, the zookeeper and staff were friendly and informative. While it does cost extra to do the encounter, it's really worth the money. Also, due to the small group size, the tickets tend to sell out on the weekends, so I recommend buying tickets online before you arrive.
