ZooAmerica is attached to Hershey Park. It is included with admission to Hershey Park. You can also just enter the zoo on its own, without having to go to the park. This is not my favorite zoo. I feel that there’s not much to see.

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.

See all of America's notable wild life, elk, deer, bear, multiple birds of prey and one of the most beautiful scenic grounds anywhere. Stop on the bridge that over looks a flowing river in the shadow of the once used cocoa bean elevators of Hershey...More
