Reviewed August 17, 2013 via mobile

Cute small zoo. Average. The food here is less than par. We went on a hot day. Kids screamed all day! Animals didn't come out. But after the flood a couple years ago, the zoo was redone. It looks good!!! We did enjoy it! Our 2 year old faught loves the birds. 7 year old son loves the reptiles & 13 year old loves the prairie dogs. They are cute & a huge hit!
They have a small gift shop but its always crowded. Typical stuff. Wild America. Price of zoo admission is included w park tix. Nice to go. They put on little skits about Eco stuff. They try. Not big crowds. Some fun art stuff too. Not too busy! Fast pass thru if you choose it to be

The zoo is attached to the park. If you have a disability you should know the zoo is very hilly. It will handle a wheel chair just fine though. All animals are from North America so no apes or elephants. Little kids love this zoo. The prairie dogs are so awesome. We could have sat there and watched them for hours!

We come back every year for the new attractions but unfortuantely the Zoo just can't keep up! I think the past few storms have taken a toll on the animals and the help. It was a big disappointment this last trip as we didn't see very much let alone anything new and exciting!

Smallish zoo still requires a lot of walking. Some of the enclosures are smaller than I'd like to see. North American animals represented. If you're spending a few days at Hersheypark it's a good place to go in the middle of the day when the rides line up.

We enjoyed seeing the animals and liked the paths that made it easy to navigate the park. The bears and prairie dogs were a huge hit for my tween boys
