We planned to spend 3 days and 2 nights in the Hershey area as a family vacation with our two boys, ages 10 and 7. It was our first visit. The plan was to check out the water park on one day, and the amusement park the next day. Day ONE - Water park. We packed backpacks and planned to... More

We have been coming to Hershey since my teens (and 20 year old) have been in strollers! Can't say enough about this place! The park is maintained beautifully...very clean and beautiful flowers everywhere. More than enough restrooms, too. Sign posts everywhere...very helpful! The park is big, but not overly so. I love that we can purchase a ticket which also... More

Had no idea place would be so mobbed on a late Saturday in September. Huge crowds, lines fro rides & unbearably long lines for food. Finally gave up. Population of visitors mostly very large, overfed people. Everyone was very polite though if they happened to bang in to you with their over largeness. I can also buy the same hershey... More

I've lived in Lancaster PA for my whole life, and i've experienced Hershey Park growing up. Something I noticed now, that I am 23, compared to when i was 13. 1. Lines are outrageous, maybe its becoming more popular, but a 2 hour wait for one ride is incredible. I spent 30 dollars on an evening ticket and I technically... More

Dear Jason B, It is very disheartening to us to hear your feedback. We seek to create options and value fir everyone by having offerings like the Sunset Admission option you reference, along with Hersheypark meal tickets. As the Park is only open weekends in September in which we had beautiful weather, many guests may have had the same idea... More

My family goes to Hershey Park every year during the holidays. Some years it is very very cold, other years it has been surprisingly warm. Whatever, we always have a great time. The holiday decorations are magnificent.

Hershey Park has a variety of rides and attractions for different age groups. Everyone in our group was able to enjoy themselves. Great roller coaster park, some of the best in the Northeast. Plus, Chocolate World is fun to see.

A great time had by all! And by all I mean my parents, in their 70's, and my 3 kids under the age of 10 and me. There was something for everybody to do ranging from the zoo to rides to entertainment. The chocolate factory tour was great but we were disappointed when they told us it cost 15$ to... More

Hardly news to anyone who has visited one of these places - but a horrible experience. Lines. Lines. God the lines. Just get me out of there. In 4 hours wandering the park - we visited the zoo - most of the cages were empty. And the throngs of people - you would swear there was a pink unicorn there.... More

How do I not give the Hershey Park a good review? My 6 year old wandered off on our walk down the boardwalk and security stepped up and found him in 20 minutes. As I ran around the park frantic, I saw every guard on walkie talkies listening and taking action on it. We got a call that he was... More
