  • In spite of family oriented, park offers something for everybody. Our group consisted of children from 5 years old to grandparents in their 90s. We all love it and had a great time.

  • We had gone to Hersheypark on 29th Oct 2016. It is a nice place to spend the 3 to 4 hrs. We have done the free chocolate factory tour which was pretty good, we also watched the 4D movie which costs 7 dollar each. That movie was pretty good for Children. They distribute lots of free chocolate to Kids, few free chocolates are there for adult as well. Nice place to click photos, know the chocolate manufacturing process and taste some tasty chocolates. Parking is free for 3 hrs after that it is 15 dollar for 4 hrs and like that it keeps increasing depending upon the duration of stay.If you are kids then its must go place and if not then it can be considered as "one time go".
  • Hershey Park is a great option for an amusement park if you're local to the area. I prefer it over Six Flags Great America which is about equidistant. The Hershey's Chocolate World is a fun, interesting side excursion and there's certainly enough to do in the park itself to tire you out for the day. Like most amusement parks, it does tend to add up in terms of expense - Admission, food, drinks, etc. Packing a picnic lunch or hitting up a local restaurant can help save quite a bit!
  • We went for Halloween and it was great! I have A6 year old and A5 year old and there was plenty of rides to keep them entertained easily for 2 days. On a scale level it was definitely more on the kids friendly Busch Gardens sort of level not scary like Kings Dominion Six Flags
  • Definitely something here for everyone. There's plenty of shopping in and near the park. Tons of good vendors and even a few restaurants. There's a museum and factory for the history buffs and tons of rides for the adventurer. The park is clean and well maintained. The staff was friendly and fun.
  • Haven't been to Hershey in years and my favorite ride is still and will always be the chocolate tour. At least the parking lot is nice and clean. There are separate lanes for cars and different sections to park. The park is clean and friendly. A lot more coasters than Dorney, and they are very extreme. They are fun but if you aren't used to those kind of rides, they will beat you up. Overall, it's a very fun park to go to. If I lived closer, I would definitely get a season pass.
