My family of 4 and I amazingly spent 11 hours walking around the park. There was so much to do and so many things to look at and take in that my children 7 and 9 years old didn't have much to complain about. Prices for food were decent and you got a lot.

Park very busy during summer. The water park is nice. You probably need two days to see everything. There is a lot of walking. My niece says they should have a separate waterpark entrance which would help with lugging beach stuff through the park.

There is actually a ton of stuff to do here. Quite a few roller coasters, for those who are interested in that. And a lot of smaller rides for kids (think glorified carnival rides).It is very expensive though. We spent an entire day there and ended up not being able to do everything. Plus the water park was closed, so... More

My family and I went for a quick weekend getaway for my birthday. The park is very large with many hills. So glad our kids have outgrown their strollers! It was the last weekend the park would be open for the summer and it was crowded! I guess the nice weather brought out the locals and the tourists. Allow a... More

It's a great place for friends to gather. We enjoyed the Hershey Kiss ride the best. We went in the morning and came back later in the evening.

I've lived in Lancaster county for 46 years and have gone to Hershey Park since I was a child. Now we take our children. Still as much fun now as when I was a child. A it pricey, but I don't know an amusement park that's not.

We were staying at the Hershey Lodge so we had access to enter the park a hour earlier than the normal opening time. I HIGHLY recommend if you are staying on property to take advantage of this. We took the bus over from the hotel, waiting for Chocolate World to open - got right on the chocolate ride without waiting.... More

We are a roller coaster family. We typically go to Cedar Point or Kings Island, but decided to try something different. There are some phenomenal roller coasters here. Wish we could have stayed two days!
