Great place for old and young! Small enough to enjoy in a day. Large enough to learn about and see a variety of species

Nice way to get away from the park for a bit. Small zoo, not too much to see. Most of the animals were exhausted from the heat and sleeping when we were there around 3p in July

I love animals and zoos, so this one was a little disappointing as it is very small without a lot of animals. If you go to Hershey Park, you can enter ZooAmerica free on the same day, so I didn't pay a separate fee for it. If I had paid their regular admission fee, I would have described it as... More

Small zoo. Walked through with free admission from hershey park. It was a nice escape from the blazing sun and fast rides. Probably not worth the admission if visiting from outside hershey park.

For a small zoo, it really is a neat place! The night time creatures is the best I've ever seen of nocturnal animals at any zoo. I live in Ohio, and we are known for good zoos too....Cleveland Zoo, Columbus Zoo, Toledo Zoo, Cincinnatti Zoo, Akron Zoo, etc.

This is a great little zoo right inside Hershey Park. It has many different varieties of animals and is a nice break from all of the rides, games, and chaos within Hershey Park. It is included in the regular ticket price and my children really enjoyed it.

Free with your purchase of hershey park tickets. Great for a quick rest time, walk through and enjoy some of the animals they have.

After eating lunch we decided that we didn't want to attempt on of the many roller coasters. A stroll through the zoo was perfect, the kids weren't bored surprisingly. It provided the right amount of downtime before going on the coasters again.

This is is a small zoo. I usually try to hit up Zoo America when I'm at Hershey park as you can enter Zoo America from Hershey park. It is a nice break from the rides and the crowds. It is a smaller zoo so it really doesn't take that much time from your day.

Small zoo, but interersting, fun & clean. Loved watching the prairie dogs. The ocelot & bobcats were beautiful. Loved the bears. Included in the Hershey Park admission price.
