  • Great place to see a concert! I have seen 3 concerts here from different seats, and have had an awesome experience each time. It is a relatively small, open air venue. It feels more personal than a giant stadium or arena.
  • Saw a concert here, for an older building it was a very decent setup. Plenty of food, bathrooms, and merchandise tables. The seats/view were great everywhere. The only downfall was the fairly worn, less-than-sturdy plastic chairs. The chairs were flimsy and attached together with zip ties. But it was a concert, you stood 95% of the time anyway. And the stands have typical bleacher style stadium seats, so those are a plus if you aren't on the field.
  • Shame on Hershey for locating all their venues (theme park, stadium, Giant Center & Chocolate World) all together. There are enough people visiting the amusement park and Chocolate World on any given day, then throw in 30,000 people for a concert when the parking lots are already full and you have a disaster. I had never been to this stadium for a concert and we had to park across a busy highway, up on a hill in a grass lot and then trek over a mile in 90+ degree heat to get to the stadium. Field seats are jammed together folded metal chairs and you are literally touching shoulders with the people beside you, who are also sweaty. The rest of the stadium is benches, not seats, so that would not have been anymore comfortable. After the concert, when it is almost midnight, came out of the stadium, after being treated at the medic station for heat exhaustion, and was totally confused on how to get back to that grass parking lot. No signs, no information available. Had to ask several traffic directors who already had their hands full directing an overload of traffic. Loved the concert, but will NEVER return there for a concert.
  • I've been to 100's of venues in my life and this is officially the worst one I've ever been to. The infrastructure is just not available to hold a major show. Our parking spot was 1.5 miles from the venue - a good 30 minute walk - through fields and over hills - fun in the dark coming back. Getting out - well plan on an hour plus - bring a cooler and some chairs. The venue itself is just old. It was meant for a time when football players wore leather helmets. Not enough - anything - bathrooms, vendors, exits etc. In fact - it feels a little unsafe if the place needed to be evacuated. As for the show - if you are in the stands - they are benches - not seats. So you are squished together and uncomfortable. On the floor - seats are temporary - they move around - and if you are in the back - forget it - you aren't seeing a thing. You are better off driving to Philadelphia, Baltimore, Scranton to see a show - and it will take you the same amount of time to get home.
  • Nice, spacious stadium with several food and beer vendors. The stadium holds a lot of people and great to go see awesome bands and musicians. There is a fun atmosphere with great views of the stage.
