We have taken the kids here several times. We buy the package with the Hershey park tickets for the Christmas in Hershey. There are a glod mix of different animals, and the kids always have a good time.

The zoo is part of Hershey Park though I think it does have a separate entrance if you want to do it alone. They're on a lot of exhibits but which ones they do have are pretty nice. A little Zoo not very big but...More

This zoo is very small. We are members to a different zoo, luckily, bc it made this zoo half price. I would have been very disappointed to have paid full price. The habitats are good and the animals seem well taken care of. If going...More

I would not waste the time with this zoo. So few animals to see and even those that were supposedly there would not come out of hiding.

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.

We took a break from the park after lunch and decided to walk around the zoo before heading back to do more rides. Entry was included with the park tickets. It's on the smaller side, and although it appears to be fairly well kept, it...More

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.
