We took my 3 year to Hershey Park and had a great time! One thing I really liked was the amount of kiddie rides. They seemed to be all over the park. I was also impressed with the overall size of Hershey. I have been to Disney/Universal a dozen times and I think Hershey is right up there in size.
We also enjoyed the water park. My daughter loved the wave pool. I usually don't do water rides (not into being in a bathing suit in public with other people who should NOT be in a bathing suit period!) but it was really hot! The water area was clean and refreshing. It was really what got us through the day with the heat.
I didn't have any problems with crowds most likely because it was a Monday. I also didn't go on any of the larger rides because I was there for my young daughter.
Another thing to note was the quality of the food. Much more choices than at Disney. It wasn't just the regular over priced hot dogs and burgers. Although not cheap the food was at least good.
We also did the Chocolate World 3D movie and tour. It was cool and I would have liked to see more there.
I plan on returning next summer for a weekday trip.
