This is right next door to Hershey Park. It's included in your admission to the park during the summer months. It's a nice place to learn about nature and animals.

We were here in the winter and the day was nice so it was crowded/park was crowded since there were less rides open. The indoor attractions for animals/reptiles got crowded quickly and I was not too impressed by the Animals they had. I have been to better zoos and maybe it is nicer in the Summer when you want a...

Love this zoo. Slice of all american animals. The wolves are majestic and beautiful. The eagles are up close. Owls i can go on and on about the wonderful animals at this zoo. Most of the enclosures seems to give the animals plenty of room for roaming around. As with most zoos some could be expanded but for the most... More

ZooAmerica is not about things 'red, white & blue'. Quite literally, it simply means the animals there are indigenous to the North American continent. Since North America is not replete with jungle beasts or very much in the way of exotica, it is therefore mostly limited to a number of unassuming, smaller animal species. In that way, it could be...

We visited for 30 minutes as it was included in the Hershey Park ticket. Not a bad zoo for being included, but nothing special (not sure I would've paid extra for it).

I am not a zoo visitor, and have not been to many, but I really enjoyed this one. Its very small and has lots of neat animals. The buildings are historic, like Milton Hershey's original zoo. Its really a great place and is free with Hersheypark admission. When visiting Hersheypark, you need to spend some time here.

Without the zoo our trip to Hersheypark (Christmastime) would have been a disappointment. We spent 2 hours enjoying the animal exhibits. The prairie dogs, Bobcats, and snowy owls were favorites. We saw several animals not seen at the many other zoos we have visited such as a roadrunner.

This is a great walk through zoo with quite a few nice exhibits. It makes a fun rest time from the regular Hershey park experience. My kids & 4-H kids really enjoyed checking out all of the interesting animals and learned a lot from the educational exhibits and markers. It isn't the largest zoo around but is probably one of...
