This zoo was nice. It appeared the animals were well taken care of. I thought the otters and mountain lion were in too small space. Nice variety of animals. I probably would not have visited if it had not been free with admission to Hershey...More

This is a nice, small zoo. It is easy to walk and you get pretty close to the animals. My kids had a nice time. We were there for one hour. I think you would struggle to spend more than 2 hours at this zoo.

Zoo was well maintained and had some interesting animals. It is small and we would not have gone without going to Hersheypark

If you purchase a Hersheypark ticket, it is included with the admission to Zoomerica. They have a cute performance by some of the employees. It was a quick walk around the zoo and you can see a variety of animals.

Upon entering the Wildlife Park, you will notice how clean the surroundings are. Animal cages are well kept. Pathways are well marked. If you are planning to go to the Wildlife Park, just remember to bring your own bottled water. Do not worry if you...More

So, it's a nice little break from the park but this is a "north american" wildlife park - not a zoo, so don't get your hopes up of seeing lions or tigers or bears (oh my) - still a nice spot to escape teh craziness...More
