The Hershey Park Holiday Lights were terrific. Many of the rides were open and the price is right. So beautiful!!

Hershey Park will soon have 4 good coasters for coaster fans – Fare height, Great Bear, Storm runner, and new for 2012 Sky. They have two good coasters for younger children, comet and trailblazer, but their height restrictions are over-zealous. The shows are passable. The waterpark is mediocre. The lazy river is OK, the structure with all the slides and sprays if fun but the slides with rafts are too few and the lines far too long. The food really varies. Mine-town is horrid, but the food court near Storm runner has variety and fair prices at the Subway and the Greek restaurant. The park is kept very clean. Do not go on a Friday or Saturday unless you love standing in line all day with 30,000 others. Sundays average much, around 10,000 less. May and June are by far the best two months to visit. August is terrible. A Wednesday in mid-August (30,000) is more crowded than a Saturday in May (21,000) and a Sunday in June (18,000).

I've been taking my children to Hersheypark for the past 13 years. This is a great park for small children because the lines are generally very short and well-placed throughout the park. As my children have grown older, my tolerance for crowds and waiting in longer lines, has decreased. If you don't mind paying $12 to park, more than $50/pp to get in, and $3 for a drink, then this is the park for you. The lines are long on all of the popular rides (all the roller coasters) and the water park is ridiciously crowded on a very hot day.
The best time to visit Hersheypark is after 5 during the week and as soon as it opens on a Sunday morning. Go to the back of the park and work your way out.
