We took a break from the park after lunch and decided to walk around the zoo before heading back to do more rides. Entry was included with the park tickets. It's on the smaller side, and although it appears to be fairly well kept, it...More

I’ve been here twice with my young children. It’s a small zoo - we probably spent 2 hours each time. It’s not my favorite zoo and it’s a bit pricey for how small it is. But it’s clean and and the animals are well kept.

The entry fee was free, as it should be. The areas were open and easy to navigate. There weren't too many people working here, so families were free to roam around and learn on their own. An interesting mix of animals (birds, cats, deer, amphibious...More

The Zoo is pretty small, but for us that made it nice....not too much walking yet a lot to see. While the 'before hours' or 'after hours' tours are an additional cost, I highly recommend them. You get to see most of the animals on...More

This zoo is the perfect break from the busyness of Hersheypark. It's included in Park admission and connected by a short monorail ride. There is a wonderful prairie dog area and if they're in a playful mood, they're downright hilarious to watch. You can do...More

Most people do the zoo the same day as the park because it's included with admission. It's a small zoo that takes an hour or so to complete.
