ZooAmerican is a very diverse zoo. The manor in which this Zoo is set up is amazing. This Zoo has two building which house many species that you might not expect to see. Next, there is an outside portion. The layout is not too much of a challenge for those who do not want to walk a lot. There is... More

We where in Hershey in January and was glad to find this small zoo open. It was really icy in the morning but warmed up quickly so we decided to visit the Zoo. We found the paths to be well maintained and staff very friendly. We had a very enjoyable time visiting the animals. Nice assortment of animals to view... More

Living in the Bronx, you expect all zoos to be large and plentiful but when traveling you start to realize that other places have hidden gems we had two day tickets to Hershey Park which included the admissions zooAmerica we went through this zoo in a little less than two hours and found the park to be enjoyable. The staff... More

We visited this zoo on our way in to Hersheypark. The staff was wonderful and the zoo was nice. It took us about an hour to go through. There was no crowd at all. I'd definitely recommend it, especially if you're heading to the park.

Winding hilly trails lead you to each animal's area. Most are clearly marked, some, not so much. This zoo just needs some growing room. It is a nice break in the waterpark day. To get to it, you do have to climb more hills though. My tip: if you have a tight schedule, save yourself the time a view this... More

Yes, this is a well/maintained small zoo; Hershey Entertainment and Resorts certainly understands how to keep customers happy. My issue is with the small size of some enclosures. Some of the animals seem too tightly confined and demonstrate repetitive behaviors that indicate anxiety or unhappiness. It would be worth it to expand the footprint of the zoo or eliminate some...

We really enjoyed this outdoor indoor walk through zoo. There was alot of different animals and species to see! The walk way was close to the animals which made it easy to see them. The only part we didn't like was being charged full price for our 9year old. For a family of four being charged full price and one... More

Love ZooAmerica. We like to go when we are visiting Hershey Christmas Candy lane. It's always interesting. Very clean. Animals are well cared for. It's just the right size to give adults a little break from the chaos of the park. The kids have a good time looking for all the animals. I would definitely recommend this for all ages.
