For those who were not up to their teen years, when they used to ride the roller coasters, there were the shows to see, while the younger people rode the rides. Not any more. The summer concert series came to a halt in 2013, without warning, to those who faithfully braved the long lines to sit on hard benches in... More

There is something for everyone . The Park is clean and very family oriented. The lines are longer in the day then the evening I would highly recommend the twilight pass for rides you really want to go on with less lines. Go to dunkin fonuts for the discount tickets will come back again and again

We took advantage of the preview on a Thursday night. I really appreciated having the opportunity to check out a few rides, We did get to ride Laff Trak, which was a blast. Wild mouse indoors on steroids. The little kids on line made me think it was less intense than it was, My 6 year old grand daughter loved... More

This was my second time to Hershey Park. I went in 2009. I went with a mentoring group. It was in April and very cold. This time when I went to the park in August and it was hot, very hot. I went again with teenagers from a recreation center. I was struck by the beauty of Hershey Park the... More

My boyfriend and I visited HersheyPark for the first time this past July for our anniversary, and we had a great experience! We had so much fun! The park was extremely clean, including the restrooms (which I feel is rarely seen in an amusement park!), and the staff was very friendly and helpful. There is a nice variety of rides... More

We went to hershey park with a 10 year old and 13 year old. I had a bum ankle so we rented a wheel chair to get around the park. My kids are not into rollercoasters but they found plenty to keep them entertained. Their favorites were the coal cracker, trailblazer, tidal force and lightning racer. There was plenty of... More

Very family oriented! We found the pricing to be fair and a good value. Milton Hershey's story is very interesting and inspiring!

So there is not much else I can say. This place is clean, friendly and has a great feel to it. There is one mystery though that I could not figure out about the place: There are no birds! No pigeons, no seagulls, no sparrows. It is very strange. Do they employ some kind of high frequency noise to keep... More

It was a great warm day to both ride and play in water. The parking line went quickly and had many staff to give directions to general parking spaces. Then the issues began. Need to improve the tram transportation system. I knew it was gonna be a long day since there was long lines to get I to the trams.... More

We bought tickets online and were able to enter the night before after 8 for a sneak preview. We used this time to figure out what we wanted to do the next day. I wasnt sure what kind of bag to bring and ended up buying a nylon drawstring backpack for my things. Most of the rides have a place... More

twentyonethirteen, We're glad to see you took advantage of the free Preview the evening before your first visit. The fact that you had a great time with your party makes us all Hersheypark Happy! Of note, we do have rentable lockers in which to keep those valuables. Our coasters tend to take those items out of Guests' pockets no matter... More
