There was a good collection but overall a smaller zoo you could zoom past in about an hour. If pressed you could spend some nice time in... More

Remember it's a North American Wildlife Park. Some people question, "Where are the Tigers and Elephants?" If they don't live in North American they aren't at the park. It is a great place to stroll through while you rest up from the day at Hershey park.

This little zoo is a nice add-on visit to the park. Focussed on animals from America, don't expect to find elephants. They do offer a seal show! It's small but kids love it.

Kinda a let down. Wasn't a lot of animals to see. Though we are spoiled with the Bronx Zoo so close to where we live.

Every Time we come to Hershey park, we always go over to ZooAmerica. It's free admission with your Hershey park ticket, and there's always a chance you'll see different animals each time. We've gone for years and the otters were never out but they were this time!

Surprised at the number and size of exhibits in a relatively small space. Exhibits nicely done,and animals appear healthy and active. Especially enjoyed the "nocturnal" exhibit. Does require walking and ability to do stairs to reach some exhibits. Shaded seating along the paths. Friendly staff. Would go again.

Another place I just love to walk through. It's changed over years but is enjoying to watch animals. It is a small zoo but Hershey is a small town .

Came here yesterday. We both really enjoyed this zoo. It was much more exciting for us to see all the majestic animals than it was to go on the amusement park rides. We saw bald eagles, a bear, mountain lions, bob cats, lots of geese, several birds, snakes, creatures that we did know the names of, porcupines, deer, and elk.... More

This is a nice zoo, but somewhat small. There is a variety of endangered species which is good to see them being preserved. There are no lions, tigers elephants, or giraffes so most if the animals are small. Parking is free but difficult to find because the lot is small. The zoo is worth visiting on a visit to Hersheypark... More
