Confrontational employees at the park, no return correspondence from formal complaint filed at guest services regarding 3 employees, only an apology from guest services staff member who had to be called and waited for arrival. Outrageous treatment from one employee that could not back up their unjustified accusation only arrived on scene with male employee presumably for back up. My... More

23 of our family met in Hershey for Thanksgiving. It was expensive but really nice and fun. Park was not crowded and Christmas light show was great. We stayed at the Hershey Hotel, that was the expensive part.

My family and I and some friends went down in Summer 2012. It was lots of fun. Surprisingly clean as it was the middle of summer and many of different things for us kids to do. I would definitely go back again if I had the chance.

Hersheypark is a really nice park; it's clean, friendly, safe, and most of all filled with a lot of fun rides and even a waterpark! There are a lot of ways to save money on tickets (thru the local grocery store, online, etc) as it's not cheap, but you do get what you pay for. The park has grown a... More

I can't say enough how much I enjoy bringing my family here. We take our girls here every year and it never disappoints! This park is very clean and is laid out well. Great place for young kids and teens!

Hershey Park does amusements right. First, there is shade! Anyone who has been to an amusement park in the summer knows it is simply miserable to stand on asphalt in the blazing sun huddled together with the masses in the shade of an anemic sapling. Add to that a gaggle of sweaty, hungry children and ...well, say no more. Hershey... More

We were expecting much more than we got. Only one roller coaster was in use and it was the wooden one – which I cannot ride on (need the head support of the newer coasters). Putting Christmas decorations around and closing everything else is not worth the money it cost us to go. It was a complete bust for my... More

Nice Christmas Light Display. Discount tickets were sold at Giant Grocery Stores. If arrive early, it was nice to walk around ZooAmerica to see the animals, which is also included in the price. ZooAmerica closes at 4 pm, this time of year. It was nice to see the reindeer and hear some of the live performances. Would go back again.
