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.

A great way to let your stomach settle a bit from the rides at Hershey. Walk on over on the enclosed bridge and check out the animals. My kids really enjoyed feeding the geese.
