Nice, clean park with great roller coasters! Scattered rides for little ones throughout is a nice touch for families with little kids. It's a very hilly park though so just be aware of that before you go. Another thing to be aware of is that some of the rides are very tight for guests who are overweight-they actually have signs...

Went to visit the park with friends and the park was great. Lines were short and easy to get on and off rides. We picked a great end of summer day. Think most of the short lines were related to being on a week day when a lot of schools started by then. The souvenir cup was a great investment.... More

My family just returned from two great days at Hershey. For the adults (and the oldest child - nine year's old), we bought the two-day pass offered on Hershey's website. It's my opinion that you totally get your money's worth! Included in the price is two days entrance to the park, two food voucher coupons (redeemable at so many food... More

Be prepared to walk up and down A TON of hills. This park is jammed packed with roller coasters and it can feel like a labyrinth. Might not be the best for families with children who aren't up to big thrill rides. The water park seemed nice enough, though it was confusing too. Very little seating in the shade, very... More

We went to Hersheypark for the first time on a Tuesday. I had two 17 year olds with me and they absolutely loved it. First off, for those who have never been, there is a waterpark and a zoo all within the same park, and I'd like to share some tips on how to best enjoy your day. If you... More

Our family has been coming here almost every year for the better part of 8 years. It is always a wonderful visit. The park is very clean with plenty to do and plenty of places to eat. This year we had a downpour that lasted over an hour and closed the rides during that time. My son and I had... More

We've been to Hershey Park several times. We tend to visit on a weekday when the lines aren't so bad. Rides for all ages and thrill level. Good selection of food. We usually get the souvenir cup to get the $0.99 refills. Concession stands will fill a container with water for free. We've done the chocolate tasting and make your... More

It has been 12 years since I was at Hershey so it was fun to see all the changes. I had not remembered it being so hilly, so we went up the hill as directed by staff to rent a scooter for one of our party. When we arrived next to the FA Station, the kiosk was closed, so we... More

We have two boys, 11 and 5, and there were plenty of rides for both of them. We hit the water park portion in the morning, ate lunch, did the Hershey's Choloate World Tour, and then stayed in the park until it closed. It was a fun-filled day!
