ZooAmerica is a very small exhibition. Great place to visit if you are already at Hershey Park, otherwise save yourself the money.

Great place to stop if you are killing time. Perfect for kids and even good for adults too. They have sever sights, some Indoor and outdoor. Takes a little while to do through it all. Overall, we really liked it!

I don't think I would pay to see this park separate. Included with Hershey Park, nice. It is small scale. Took us 1 hour to walk through. Some animals hard to see. We didn't eat there. Just walked through exhibits. Follow the recommended route so you don't miss anything.

All of the exhibits were cute. I would not make a special trip for the zoo all the way from Jersey but it was nice that the zoo was included with the Hershey park ticket.

The prarie dogs were my absolute favorite! However, compared to other zoos that we have been to, there were not a ton of animals. The park was clean, well maintained, a layed out in such a way that kept people moving. Since the wildlife park was included in our price of admission to Hershey Park, I feel that it was... More

This is a small zoo but it so worth going to. Last year, my daughter and I just went here (and not to Hershey Park). This year we went to Hershey Park so we made sure we found time to visit during the day. It's a nice way to break up the day.

Animals are not really in there own habitat and they could be better designed. Not really worth seeing.

I read mixed reviews on here... The fact is.. while it is rather small its very interesting! Its ONLY North American (continent) animals! So if you want to see a Bengal tiger.. you won't see it here. The animals are well cared for. I was very impressed with their policies. They have 2 wolves, one which one injured and one... More

It was quite nice to be able to head into the zoo when the noise and motion of the park became to intense. It was so quiet and rejuvenating. I am not sure how it would be as a stand alone zoo, but as an addendum to the park, its fantastic.
