ZooAmerica is the small zoo in Hershey that is included with your admission in the park. It's a nice break from the rides, and they have lots of North American animals, including alligators, a desert area, a forest area, and a porcupine. Very interesting.

Our family always attends the Wildlife park as part of our time at Hershey Park (entrance to the Zoo is included with your admission). It is quite small as far as 'zoos' go, but the kids love it Every time. We make it more fun buy adding scavenger hunts and finding all of the details.

Our group found this zoo very limited. We knew ahead of time that it wasn't a large zoo and the zoo's information does make it clear that there are no large animals. Despite knowing this, we found the zoo somewhat limited. Some animals were hard to see or not visible at all. We felt that this zoo could use some... More

This is a nice little zoo, but in general, I have a bit of a problem with a lot of zoos not giving animals enough space. The alligators are in a small area. The nocturnal fox exhibit and the marten exhibit had some pretty anxious animals that were repetitively pacing. The turkey vulture was in a small cage. All of... More

We were at Hershey park with passes and planned a few hours to visit the zoo. It was a good break from the park and a change of pace for our little ones. There are only animals from the Americas here, so there isn't a huge variety, and the zoo isn't really too big. But I didn't see those as... More

I was a little taken back by some of the cages these animals were placed in. The bald eagles especially! Two of them in a very small netted area. Hardly enough room for them to spread their wings. Would have liked a closer view of animals.

Zoo America is located inside of Hershey Park and is included in the price of your admission ticket. It was clean and well kept. Great variety of animals of all types. Great time and quite educational!

When you need a relaxing break from the hustle & bustle of the ride attractions, this is a great stop. It's included in the price of the park admission & it's a very nice small zoo. While there are none of the larger animals usually associated with zoos (lions, tigers elephants, etc) there are plenty of other smaller animals. There... More

You can visit this for free if in the park -- or just visit it separately. The Zoo is small in size, yet is a nice setting and walk around the natural settings and buildings. Only America animals, so no elephants, tigers, Zebras or such. Great for kids or a break for the adults.
