Hershey Park Boadwalk

This is a very unsafe attraction with park supervision being little or none. There are "lifeguards" on the entry level but once you start ascending to the water slide levels, you can literally be drowned by guests misusing the provided water features.Hershey, get some lifeguards monitoring guests on the upper platforms!!

Two stranger teenage girls sprayed my 10 year old in the mouth with a contraption that resembled garden hose at close range and they followed him with it- when I asked them to stop they did it stronger. He felt completely unsafe and threatened and I had no control over the force of the water.

It looks fun from the outside, but if the rest of the rides in Hershey are run the same way. oh boy, you are no way in safe hands.

Go to the beach instead!

Sadly I have heard similar complaints from other people about the Boardwalk. My own personal opinion is pretty much everything about the Boardwalk area of the park is a disaster and it is very much unlike any other water park I've been at. The lines to even get into the small wave pool or East Coast Waterworks area can be ridiculous. On my last visit the entire Boardwalk area was jammed with wall-to-wall people. I know that doesn't bother many people but it's not my idea of fun. Fortunately, I have never encountered problems of this magnitude in other areas of the park.

I would contact the management about this before someone gets hurt. They should welcome the information. I would not want to use anything I did not feel safe about!

You have to wonder what HersheyPark execs. were thinking when they put in this Boardwalk area. It is FAR from a full scale waterpark, and just doesn't work. Its too congested, not enough attractions, limited room for expansion, etc. It seems like there would be other options in this rural area for them to put a separately gated full-scale waterpark. They closed their rapids ride (which was a great ride) in August for future expansion, but this section of the park is just crazy. If people are going to HersheyPark, I wouldn't even bother with the Boardwalk!
