We actually got to witness a wolf chase a squirrel. The wolf didn't get him. We just a really nice place to let the 17... More

It's a small zoo, included in your Hershey Park admission. There is a decent variety of animals, a very small play area (slide). There are displays at various times of the day were zoo keepers will talk about a particular animal and do a Q & A session.

My family (all adults) and significant other visited during the off season. There was few other people there and it was like we had the zoo to ourselves. The exhibits were all very clean and the signage was informative. We saw all the animals they have. The giant snapping turtle and elk were our favorite. The zoo was very easy... More

Very limited in size and scope, but still enjoyed seeing what they have. The cats were beautiful. A few protesters in front of the place. I understand their point. I don't like animals locked up in small enclosures for their entire lives! It's like prison for some serious crime they committed, but they are innocent. Certainly don't believe animals equal...

This isn't your regular lions, tigers and monkey's kind of zoo. I was really confused by another review saying they didn't have a lot of traditional animals...This is all of the animals you will find in the Park's surroundings here in Northern America (thus the name). There is an indoor section then you can venture outdoors to walk the path... More

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.
