The park's first roller coaster ride opened in 1923, and today the venue contains a total of 70 rides and attractions, covering a vast area of over 45 hectares (110 acres). The six themed areas offer rides ranging from low-speed, gentle adventures for young children, to high-speed experiences for adrenaline junkies. You can also explore a section featuring a large water park, and a walk-through zoo dedicated to North American wildlife.

  • My Wife, 10 year old and me visited the park for the Xmas and New Year's. Candy Lane has changed and it's not those kiosks but Xmas tress you walk through in the park. Some rides open and some food....  more »
  • Candy Cane Lane used to be my favorite holiday event. This year it was my last time ever attending. There is no social distancing. People arriving at the park were told at the door to the store...  more »
  • Considering that we're all living in the midst of a global pandemic, Hersheypark was managed and run very well. There were stations of hand sanitizer throughout all areas of the park, social...  more »
  • I went for the first time this past Saturday and it was fun! Reminds of Six Flags, but I'm from Connecticut so my standards may be a bit different. Good place to enjoy rides, friends, and more! The Wildcat and the Great Bear were my favorite rides! The Wildcat will bang you up a bit, but you will have fun! The Fahrenheit is pretty cool. There's a water slide ride with a big drop at the end... go on that if you want to get soaked and have some fun! Stay hydrated and go with some good friends! There are restaurants surrounding Hershey Park and you can leave and go out to eat if you would like. I heard the park food is pretty expensive. Enjoy yourselves! I will come again with more friends and experience more rides 🤙🏽
  • Wow! What a amazing place. It was very busy but we still had a great time. We just did the tour of the factory which was incredible. I have small children so do everything would take a couple of days. We can wait to go back. Thanks from Canada.
  • Had a great time during my visit a while back. All of the staff were absolutely wonderful. The park was well-maintained, very clean, and everything seemed to be in working order. Fantastic place to visit. Would recommend it to anyone looking for a place to spend a day. Decent selection of rides.
  • Fun as always. However, the entire park smells like a urinal by the end of the summer. I'd recommend downloading their app. Has been useful to find rides and see wait times.
  • Great rides for all ages. If your not from the surrounding area and are wondering if you should go. Definitely go. It's a fun place for everyone. Novelty items are expensive so be prepared to drop some coin if you want the goods..Have fun and Hershey on.
