This zoo is just okay. It's not super big and it doesn't have a ton of animals. I wouldn't recommend going unless you're at Hersheypark and get free admission with your park ticket, otherwise I don't think it's worth the money.

This place is free to get in if you buy a park ticket. It was a great break from rides although my toddler was over it real soon. She wanted to go back to ride that rides!

Nice addition to the park with some nice exhibits and animals. Granddaughter got a kick out of it, especially the bears.
