The zoo is one of the better ones we have been to. It is a rescue zoo so you get to see some unique animals. It is a must see if you go to Hershey.

I love the layout of the zoo. It is a great adventure. We learned a lot about some of the different ones there. The Myna bird will repeat different things and we never knew that. It is a great place to see the eagles!

Going in the winter this wasn’t crowded at all so you could take your time and see all the animals. The outside animals loved the cold and were very active which made the visit very enjoyable.

ZooAmerica was included with our Candycane Lane ticket. My kids were reticent to leave Hersheypark but ended up really enjoying it, especially feeding the ducks. It was a nice way to have a little downtime (and warm up).

All the animals were out when we were there. I would not go just for the zoo but it was in our ticket price. It was small but clean. We got to see the black bears out this time which was nice.
