Hershey Park

We are contemplating an after Christmas family trip to Hershey, PA.

I read that the Park does not open until 5PM.

What do you do all day then?

Can you recommend a nice hotel with indoor pool?

What else would you advise a family with very young, teens, and adults?

Thanks so much.

It only opens at 5 p.m. because it is primarily for the light display only a limited number of rides will be open (primarily kiddie).

Chocolate World is open all day. The Trolley tour leaves from there year round as well, but I believe it is a slightly shortened version from the one they do in Summer. The Hershey Story Museum is nice. The Whitaker Center is Harrisburg would be entertaining for all ages. You can do a tour of the Hershey Theater. The Antique Auto Museum is fun. Indian Echo Caverns is open year round as well.

If you are visiting on a weekend for Christmas Candylane, it is open from 12:00 noon to 10:00 pm on Saturdays and 12:00 noon to 9:00 pm on Sundays. You can see what rides are open and the entertainment, etc. from this website:

Thanks, but the weekend would not work with such a diverse group.
