It's fairly small, but that's good if you don't want to do a lot of walking or have little kids that tire easily. It's not expensive and has a nice variety of animals - otters... read more

Don't be expecting a large zoo. It's compact and clean. Will take you no more than 2 hours to see. There were bears, elk, mountain lions, wolves for large animals. The Bears were playing around they were cute. My four year old loved it.

It is your plain average zoo. We had a good time going threw and seeing all the animals. I like that is is attached to the park so we could break up the day a little and take a break from all the rides.

I expected a bit more. The inside animal attractions in my opinion should be updated. On a warm day, it was fun to see bears playing in the pond they provide for them. Nice walk thru Zoo America.

It's fairly small, but that's good if you don't want to do a lot of walking or have little kids that tire easily. It's not expensive and has a nice variety of animals - otters, birds, wolves, bears, Bobcats, elk, etc. We enjoyed it.

A great small zoo within Hershey's Park. There are a very limited number of animals there but interesting enough to take a detour of about an hour while you are at the park. I mean after all it is included in admission to the park. They do stampp your hand upon entry and check it it when leaving. I would... More

We visited here in June 2016. Nice little zoo. Great for families and kids. It was a very hot day so, the animals were not real active. The zoo certainly has a large variety of animals and, it was well worth the time we spent. Tickets were 11.50 for an adult. I look at it as a donation to keep... More

A small zoo, which admission is included with the ticket to Hershey park. It was a nice break to the park, and allowed the kids to settle down some to see some critters that are native. We loved the meet the creatures opportunities, and learned a lot. We went through the whole thing in under and hour and a half,... More

This small but excellent showcase for North American animals is a good for an hour or two if one is in the area and wants a break from the amusement park across the street. Very well done -- clean and well organized.

This zoo was the perfect size for our 3 year old and 1 year old to enjoy, without getting bored or too tired. Just the right amount of animals for a short day trip. Exhibits are nice and animals are well taken care of. Would recommend.

The zoo was a decent overall visit, but would have been disappointed if I had paid extra for this. Given it was part of the Hershey Park ticket price, it was okay. The animals that we wanted to see most..were typically in their hiding spot and difficlut to really see. The walk involves some hills and, given the material you... More
