This was our first trip to Hershey with our nearly 3 year old. We had read the reviews about long lines and bad food so we were prepared (and surprised) - we had an early dinner Friday outside the park and went to Sweet Lights about 6:30pm. Much to our surprise there was no line, sure there were cars but... More

Hersheypark my childhood park, been there around 200 times already (age 25) Needless to say this is like a second home to me. And the selection of attractions is wide. 12 (soon to be 13) coasters line the park. From the mild kiddie coaster Cocoa Cruiser to the 200 foot 75 mph hyper Skyrush and everything in between, including: three... More

We drove way out of town, waited in a line of traffic for ever, while having four kids in the car already bored. Then we get there, and they give you two pair of 3-d glasses, that's right, two pairs for 4 children. Then, the cars pour into two lanes and crawl slowly bumper to bumper, ruining the light display.... More

Enjoyed the spectacular array of lights in Hershey Park and the Sweet Lights drive through! A little cold, but that is what it is all about. It is Christmas time at Hershey don't forget. Weather is usually cold in December! If you can brave the cold and sometimes wind, then you should try it. Small children have a wonderful time... More

Candy Lane: If you can bear the cold, the Hershey's Candy Lane at Hershey Park around Christmas time is a nice treat! Some of the rides are open and the lights and music are very enjoyable. Of course there are gift shops, food booths, and lots of places to purchase hot chocolate! Overall, it's worth the price of admission. A... More

Very nice event at the park, but got very crowded in the evening. The lights were very nice and there was a lot for a family or couple to do there.
