Kentucky zoo kicks off summer with intimate kangaroo encounters

Paducah, KY - A Kentucky-based zoo kicked off summer this week with a new exhibit featuring intimate kangaroo encounters.

The website states, "Experience the Thunder Down Under as a kangaroo exerts up to 750 pounds of force on your body. All for just $19.99 plus tax."

Does the experience live up to the hype? John Jacobs from Louisville thinks so.

He wrote on his Facebook page, "Just did the kangaroo encounter. Whoa! Incredible. Talk about up close and personal! I'll write a longer review when I get home from the ER, but totally worth it."

Tickets are now available online, along with the 20-page waiver you can fill out in advance. Space is limited.
