I Never Thought I'd Ever Give a Thumbs-Up to an Amusement Park

I have no idea why folks in the Midwest travel to Orlando when probably the nicest amusement park in America is in their back yard. I have been in many, many amusement parks in... read more

I have no idea why folks in the Midwest travel to Orlando when probably the nicest amusement park in America is in their back yard. I have been in many, many amusement parks in the USA and Europe. I can honestly say this is the best. Over 10 roller coasters from simple to simply fantastic. Lots of rides for smaller... More

Overall: A very nice park that like others have noted it is clean and has nice rides and shows. Well worth the discounted admission price. I found it comparable to Dolly-Wood and Holiday World. We found it to be a one day or day and half is all that is needed. Tips: (these worked for us to make the time... More

We visited with a large community group for a day visit. We first went to The Hershey Experience to do the 'make-your-own' candy bar experience and the 4-D movie. The great thing about this portion of Hershey is that admission is free. It's a great way to experience Hershey without the cost-they have themed snacks and extensive shopping here. The... More

Chaperoned our HS band on a competition to Hershey this past weekend and visited the Park on the Saturday. Overall I was very pleased with the park. My wife and I are frequent Disney World goers and usually compare everything to Disney. Hershey ranks a good 2nd to Disney. The park was very well maintained, the rides were very good... More

I visited the park with my 9, 12 and 14 yo's this week and we had a great time. We were there for a limited time so it wasn't possible to do everything but the things we did do were well worth it. The lines weren't bad, the food and drink prices were reasonable (I recommend the $14 ticket that... More

Such a fun park for kids of all ages! There are so many rides! My kids are 7 and 4 years old and they had tons of things to do. There is a water part of the park but you can't walk around the whole park in just a bathing suit-- so come prepared to cover up. The water wasn't... More

This was a great amusement park for a family. There were plenty of rides and attractions for kids of all ages. I also liked the "neighborhood" feel and all of the other patrons were friendly and respectful. No troubles with unattended teenagers jumping the lines.

Get in shape before you venture into Hershey Park!! There are places to sit, but you won't have time to find them. It's at least a two-day adventure, especially if you are going during peak season. It might take you awhile to determine which roller-coaster to try first(think there are about seven now). After some of those you might want... More

This is one of the best amusement parks that I have ever been too! Whenever we visit Hersey we always make sure to spend a day at this attraction. The roller-coasters have always been my favorite at this park.

This was our first visit ever to Hershey Park. We bought tickets online (much cheaper than buying in person) for Sunday. We took advantage of the free preview and went to the park for free on Saturday night. We paid for parking on Saturday night, but didn't have to pay again when we returned on Sunday. We loved this park.... More
