Zoo is not very large but has a good assortment of animals many local to PA. Great addition when visiting HersheyPark. Easy access and no crowds.

Highly recommend the zoo if you're attending Hersheypark. It's just the right size to spend an hour or so away from the commotion in the amusement park. It has a very nice array of native North American animals.

Loved the zoo and what a great value to be able to enter right through the park for free. The zoo is set up very nice and you can tell the animals are well taken care of.

My daughter loves animals so having ZooAmerica in Hershey Park was amazing. The zoo itself is not too large but it was an great showing of the animals they had. All the animals appeared as if they were being well taken care of it.

We visited the zoo while visiting Hershey Park. The zoo is a nice break from the park. Not a ton of animals, but it was fun. I love the snakes, the prairie dogs, otters, and the rest...

Took the behind the scenes tour and it was totally worth it. Might come back and do the evening one. The tour includes admission so you can continue to walk around. My husband got to hold a hawk and snake too. They let us feed some of the animals snacks which was neat.

We visited April 2014 while we were in Hershey, PA. This is a pretty small zoo and not too many animals to see, but it's better than nothing. I really loved the wild cats. We also got to see a peregrine falcon feeding on a carcass...really cool. The lizard/reptile exhibit was nice. Who doesn't enjoy venomous snakes...as long as they... More
