If you're really into roller coasters, then Hershey Park is the place for you. A bit pricey to get in if you pay full price, but there are ways of getting reduced tickets at the local Giant food stores. And the food vendors are rather pricey as well. You can bring food with you but not allowed in the park.

The park is pricey and the food is typical but the overall experience is great. They have the most daring roller coasters and the other rides are exceptionally maintained. An extremely clean park with a great staff.

We had a great time at the Christmas Candy Lane. Most the rides aren't open in the winter months but they dress up the park with so many lights its wonderful. My youngest is 3 and usually can not go on rides but there were enough there to keep all 3 children entertained. The kids really enjoyed seeing Santa's reindeer... More

For adults and teens many of the rides open during this time of year are limited. Many activities (and rides) seemed scattered and took time to find. The park is probably better fit for younger kids. We visited at night when ZooAmerica was closed, further limiting option of things to do. The park is well decorated and the light display... More

We went the weekend after Christmas and the weather was amazing. This made the park more crowded and with less rides it made the lines longer. We brought our 2 kids for our daughters bday and they are little so she could not go on too much. The park is decorated really nice this time of year. We ate at... More

Very good vacation site for family trip with kids. Attractions for all kinds of ages from 2 to 99. Acceptable waiting times (even in August). Recommendation: need at least two days to cover most of attractions.

We went during the holidays, so the park was decorated to the hilt. Admission was only around $10 and every ride (excluding roller coasters) was running. We bundled up and had a blast!

Hershey Park is one of the best parks that I have ever visited. Of course there can be long lines but that is to be expected in the peak season. There is something for every age at this park. My kids especially like the roller coasters and the water park. The park is kept clean which is really nice to... More

To cold in December! Make sure you are well prepared for below freezing weather! Not enough shelter to help those needing to get out of the weather.
