This park is always a hit with my children (preteen and teen) who have been going since they could barely walk. So many rides to choose from. The holiday times (Halloween and Christmas) are magical at park. Although some rides are closed for weather related reasons there are still some (including coasters) open . With so many rides offered sometimes... More

I hadn't been to Hershey park since I was a young child, so I was excited to go back and take my own children. We also took a friend who is in her 50s. We all had a great time, and we found plenty to do. Even my little one, who is afraid of most rides, found plenty of non-scary... More

There are many amusement parks nearby, Hershey park is one of those that your kids will definitely love. There are lots rides for your kids to enjoy, and its water park part is very welcome to kids too.

Being at the park on a cold, slushy, gray day was not a lot of fun, glad we got our tickets for free otherwise it would've been a huge waste of money. Only a couple rides were open and throughout the park the sidewalks were not cleaned off. My young daughter's boots were soaked through within the first 20 minutes... More

Although we have visited the park in the last 2 days of 2016 season, we really enjoyed our days. We could go to some rides, because many were already closed, but it didn't affected the experience. the place is big, clean and organized. They have lots of rides for small kids. I went with a 5 year old boy and... More

I really enjoyed going to this park last August. It has a lot of great rides, and there's so much to do there, you can't do it all in one day! My favorite rides were the wave pool, Laff Trakk, Sooper Dooper Looper, Lightning Racer, Wildcat, the Monorail, and the Flying Falcon (which closed after my visit so they can... More

It's like a mini Disney if you're in the Tri-state area (NY, NY, CT). Fun for both kids and adults with enough to do in a day. Not worth staying there overnight unless you have a very far drive.

Before going to Hershey Park you must stop at Hershey's Chocolate World. You get to see how Hershey's Chocolate is made. Don't for get eat at the Chocolate World Cafe. When in Hershey Park don't forget to see the shows. The food prices in Hershey Park were very reasonable. Prices for getting in to the amusement park were reasonable.

We were so happy to see that Hershey park had holiday hours that coincided with our road trip. We were able to take advantage of all four hours that the park was open the night before Thanksgiving. And what a lovely surprise to find all the holiday decorations: choreographed lights and music, 12 days of Christmas displays, and Hershey characters... More

emmkmm, We'll admit it took us a split second to realize your shot of the Santa lights atop the Comet Coaster was not a real one of the Big Guy and his reindeer! It was nice to read how much you enjoyed Hersheypark Christmas Candylane and we're thrilled you and your travel party were able to take it all in... More
