Are there lockers?

Straight from the Hersheypark website, this was easier than explaining:

Lockers are available on a first-come, first-served basis and located inside the Park entrance, at Founder's Circle, and at several locations in The Boardwalk. Lockers are rented by the day. Credit cards accepted. Neither employees, Guest Relations, or Security are permitted to hold customer items for temporary storage. The lockers are not large enough to store big stuffed animals. the big stuffed animals can be stored at the "Barking Lot" located under the West Stand of Hersheypark Stadium near the entrance to the Park. Any problems with lockers will be handled through the Merchandise Office. Rental costs: large locker $20.00 and regular locker $15.00.

The Hersheypark website lists 15 water rides & attractions. Keep in mind though they list the East Coast Waterworks as one attraction, but it is a huge complex of water activities and slides. The water park area of the park is large and one can easily spend a day or the better part of a day there. Two of the rides listed (Coal Cracker & Tiny Timbers) are not in the water park area.

The water park has essentially made Hersheypark a 2 day experience. If you haven't been since the 90's, you may miss the Canyon River Rapids as a water ride. This was removed to add a large wave pool and lazy river to the Boardwalk area. There have been other changes to the park as well. A couple water slides used to sit in space now occupied by the Fahrenheit roller coaster, but there are 6 large slides in the Boardwalk, not to mention several of varying sizes in the East Coast Waterworks, as Fly Eagle mentions. You can boogie board on the Waverider. Splash around in various fountain/splash pad areas. Sandcastle Cove is specifically designed for young children. Tidal Force is the very large, you absolutely get soaked, flume ride that was probably new the last time you visited. It is just outside the main boardwalk area. And of course, the good old Coal Cracker flume is still there, but on the other side of the park.

Some people now come and spend the entire day in the Boardwalk. But, like everything else in the park, time needed is crowd dependent. We tend to go there first to beat the crowds, and have often done all we wanted to by 1 p.m. My kids are older, we don't spend a lot of time playing in the splash areas. But if it's busy, we can find ourselves standing in long lines for the water slides. (The Whirlwind is our favorite by far!)

You can get to them anytime. Once the park closes security starts from clearing from the back of the park as rides close so if you head to the lockers and security has already cleared the park up to farenheit one of the security guards will escort you to your locker.

ok I have another question.

I was planning on buying tickets online through an organization that I see I can get discounted tickets through. Some people said they never got the tickets email through to their email address. The organization I see that is doing special codes are boy scouts and girl scouts. If for some reason my tickets do not print correctly at home can I take my email confirmation or some type of confirmation to guest services to have printed at park?

I can't totally answer your question because I have not used the Boy Scouts/Girl Scouts discount coupon program. Our local high school alumni association offers a similar discount program and I know with their program, you just have to have the discount code and give it at the group ticket sales window at Hersheypark (not the general admission gates) and you can purchase the tickets on site for just slightly more than the discount price.

I checked the following website & there is a promo code. I would call Hersheypark group ticket sales (1-800-242-4236) and check if you can use the promo code at the group ticket sales window or what their policy is if your tickets don't print at home.
