  • Sweet little zoo. Was not too crowded. Parking for free was a BIG plus. Staff friendly. The price was right. Family loved it.
  • Very nice little zoo. It was included in our Hershey Park admission. As a stand alone zoo it would leave a little to be desired, but as an add on to our admission it was a nice little relaxing diversion from our day at the theme park.
  • Great zoo! They take great care of there animals. The prices are very cheap too! Slightly small, but it's good for its size.
  • Small and Quaint. Interesting sites such a bear,Bob cat, snakes galore​, snapping turtle. Lots of green foilage which is nice. Great price. Or free with Hershey Park admission
  • Nice small zoo. Hilly walking but you can do a stroller. Great environment show to watch with songs and entertainment. Food available with outdoor eating. North American animals.
