“Christmas at Hershey”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

We love to visit Hersheypark at Christmas time! They limit the rides because of the weather but they have a couple that make it easy to see all the festive decorations they put up for the holidays! The characters are dressed up in Christmas accessories and they have hot chocolate and hot peanuts for sale. It is worth the drive to see. Buy your tickets in advance to save some money!!

“Love Hersheypark”

Loved this park- great coasters, friendly staff and reasonable food prices. The Skyrush coaster was awesome and the Boardwalk had good water rides.

“Excellent Park”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

This is one of my favorite theme parks! Ample shade, rain cover, and places to rest. Food prices are high, but in line with other theme parks. They do offer $.99 refills on their souvenir cup ($8.59) which is great. I am also amazed and grateful that they will give you a cup of free ice water at any eatery! Most parks refuse and make you buy bottled instead. The rides are great and they have a good mix from kiddie to adult. The wait times were very short when we visited too! I loved it!

“Hersheys Paek”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 July 2013

Amazing. Hersheys owns the whole town. My recommendation is to take the factory tour, then the trolly which takes you through all the historical building of Hersheys, and then hit the theme park.
