Rides at the park


We are talking about spending a couple of days at Hershey before heading to Niagara Falls this summer. I am a bigger person and wondering how I would fit into some of the rides. We are used to going to disney and have no trouble there but was hoping someone could give me some feedback on the ride situation at Hershey. TIA

Please Note:

The following rides may not accommodate guests of a larger

size (height and/or weight) due to the configuration of the

safety restraint system.

Comet Trailblazer



Skyview Wildcat


Sidewinder TIDAL FORCE


generally i think it can accomidate those of larger proportion...I just think you need to use judgement of whether you are comfortable or not with the way the restraints fit :)

Hi. My brother in law has the same problem and finds that he can ride most of the rides at the park. The Great Bear has a middle row where the seats are different sizes. I can't really think of any rides that he's unable to ride and he's 300+ pounds.

I think that most of the rides would be fine. The only ride I can think of that might be an issue is the Comet. If I were you and still had any lingering concerns, I would make a call to the guest services office at Hersheypark and explain your specific concerns. They people there are generally very kind and have been trained to answer all sorts of qestions.

Hersheypark is a really nice amusement park and I hope you enjoy your trip here!
