Hershey Park is a great place to visit especially around Christmas time. The holiday decorations are amazing, the store as you would expect has every Hershey product you want, all nicely gift wrapped for your holiday giving.

Please note this review is about the Hershey Sweet Lights attraction, not Hershey park. I am writing this review because I was very surprised at how poorly executed this attraction is, especially attached to Hersheys name. It is a big town idea that is executed with small town management. Fun Factor: My children and I lost interest in this before... More

December in Hershey is magical. The lights are twinkling, holiday music is playing, hot cocoa is flowing and the smell of chocolate is intoxicating. We got a great deal on tickets. We went to dutch wonderland on Saturday and Hershey on Sunday for $20 per ticket for both days! The kids and adults had a wonderful time on the rides... More

My husband and I visited Hershey Park yesterday with our grandchildren and their Mom and completed our day with a drive through the Hershey Sweet Lites sensational holiday lights display. We purchased the ticket at a discount at the same time we bought our ticket for Hershey Park so instead of the usual $25 per car, our cost was $17... More

Hersheypark is one of the cleanest amusement parks that I have visited in the Northeast! Hersheypark is Hershey Happy! Great employees who are friendly and helpful. The park is affordable and fun for ALL! Kiddie rides and grown up rides! Great food, especially at the Boardwalk! I recommend the crab cake sandwich! There is also Nathan's Famous Hot Dogs too!...

We loved going here. It was fairly cheap. $19 per carload on a sunday evening. You drive through all these Christmas lights & animations. It was fantastic!! Our 8 year old loved it! Definitely will go again next year!!

The average person coming into the park would pay an exorbitant price for not only the ticket, but everything else within. I enjoy coming in the evening when there are less annoying clusters of families who walk too slow, taking in all of the splendor. The rides are fun, but more enjoyable when there are less people; who wants to... More

Unfortunately it was pouring the day we visited so we only stayed for a few hours and didn't see everything. The rides we did go on were fun for my little ones. The Up on the Rooftop Show was spectacular and worth the price of admission alone (I bought discounted tickets at Giant on the way)! It was really, really... More

Very clean park- lines seemed to move pretty quickly- rollercoasters were exciting, pleasant staff- rained within an hour of us getting there and they gave free passes to return

Came in with kids over Thanksgiving weekend for the Candy Lane and the Sweet Light. The weather was not the warmest for the park so we decided against visiting at night and went on Sunday morning, of course it would have been 100% cuter if we came after dark. Never the less, kids loved all the rides, since we were... More
