We enjoyed a late December visit while Hershey was holding their Candy Lane event. Most rides were open but the large roller coasters were not. Low crowds and high service made this a very enjoyable day.

I'm sure much has changed but I remember enjoying the park and the rides. At the time they sold huge solid Kisses.

It was not our plan since we were gonna stay for only 2 days, but the people around expressed that it was really good ti visit it; so we did. Its a good part, not compared to disney, but it was good. Remember to take a lot of sunscreen and food cause its pricy inside.

The purpose of this place has become how to get you in the door then nickel and dime you the entire time you are here, especially if you have kids, sad but true. I am a local that has lived within 20-30 minutes of the park my entire life. I'm going to pass along some tips for coming here and... More

Have been here two times over the last two years while visiting family. There are basically two parts to the Park - the rides and amusements section and then the Waterpark. Have been in both. The rides are fun with a great variety from little kiddy rides to the spinning saucer roller coaster ride which will make you puke if... More

This is a must do on family vacation with kids.My husband and I took our boys here after we went to the Hershey factory.Not a budget friendly activity but they loved it.Just make sure you don't take the kids on a hot as hell🔥 day 😖that makes it suck for everyone and if you do just be prepared .

After attending an event at the Giant Center, we drove over to venture through HersheyPark at Christmas! We have done this before, and decided to do it again, because we enjoyed it so much the first time. Lots of beautiful lights, a Christmas show, reindeer, lots of good eats, and if you dare, the rides are mostly running, but can... More

I had never been here - Went the weekend of New Year's for the Christmas theme. Only one large coaster was opened - Super Dooper Looper one. I liked it - another smaller coaster open also. Went on the train, monorail, scrambler and several others. Food is grossly overpriced and I hated it. Security is good here. Christmas decorations were... More

One of my favorite places to travel for an amusement park experience. The roller coasters are awesome and there are some for everyone to ride! From the thrill Skyrush to the tame 'Comet', they are all awesome. One nice thing they do there is the 'preview plan' where they allow you in the park in the evening the day before... More
