“Perfect for small kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2012 via mobile

We've had season passes for the last 5 years. Best for kids younger than 9/10. Shows are pretty hokey, but kids do enjoy them. Best party of park is the lack of teenagers. Very much a family atmosphere. Waterpark doesn't have a pool, but more of a splashpad. Advise going later in the day, can be a zoo early in the day. Be aware the park started charging for parking last year for their closest parking lot (except for season pass holders). If you have a baby, go to the back of the park for the garden area- great place for a napping baby.

“Great Amusement Park for little kids”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

This is a great fairly inexpensive park for those with little kids by little I mean under 7. The only "big" rides are a rollar coaster and log flume most of the park is geared for the smaller under 40" crowd. Some rides are even for kids only. We have figured if you live close by or are vacationing here for a few days the Dutch/Hershey Park season pass is a great deal.

“Great for the young ones...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 16, 2012

Have taken our Grandchildren there numerous times when Hershey owned the park. Always clean, safe and very fun. I am not sure why Hershey would sell the park to another company - I am concerned it may not be run as efficiently and as successful.

“The best place ever if you are 5 years old.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2012

My nephew will geek out the entire day when we go here. It's not much fun for anyone over 9.
