4.1
Explore the chocolate wonderland of Hersheypark, founded in 1906 as a leisure park for employees of the Hershey Chocolate Company. 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. Be sure to drop by the visitor center, containing restaurants and chocolate shops, and offering free chocolate factory-themed tour rides.

  • The park is very clean and there is so much to do. The waterpark was fantastic, even though the day we went was a touch on the chilly side. The staff is very friendly and helpful. The lines for the ro...  more »

  • My family and I had a blast until the heavy rain came. Wish we had known about the express lane passes because it would have been so much easier to get on rides. The water area was listed down about 3...  more »

  • Prices were a little high but I was kind of expecting that. We didn't get a chance to check it out but the amusement park looked like a lot of fun. Everything they have available to do within the chocolate shop is fun for pretty much any age! Making your own chocolate bar was a lot of fun and my only complaint is the short list of options you get to customize it. All of the staff were polite and helpful even though the whole place was very chaotic. I'll definitely be back!
  • Hershey Chocolate World is great. The town used to smell like one big chocolate brownie but since factory closed, its no longer the case. Inside is a nice shop with candy galore. Cafe is good and cupcakes and cookies are tasty. The factory tour is a must see even though its a mock tour. The 4D show is cute. The make your own candy bar was fun but a one timer for us. Love the shakes from Harmony, Olympia and Gabby. The 3 retired cow girls. The park has alot to do in rides, coasters and water park. A small zoo too. The Hershey Hotel is beautifully kept and has gardens to see. Many events are held here in the stadium and parking lot.
  • The Sweetest Place On Earth! Family friendly, no line-cutting, relaxed. Kids can win at games and Dad doesn't have to throw out his shoulder to win Mom a stuffed animal. The rides are excellent and there is something for everyone! Good family styled shows. Food is priced fairly.
  • Definitely check out the chocolate tasting and the 4D movie. Worth it. The free tour is super cute. Also, everything was very moderately priced. I never felt like they were charging too much for anything. But your trolley ticket early if you want to do that though. That goes the fastest. They don't have individual kisses, you have to buy a full bag, which sucks.
  • I love this place I always get a season pass which is always a really great deal. All you need to go is three times to the park and it has paid for itself. It is a good place to go with my friends. And it's really nice to go in the springtime because there aren't very many people there. Nice place to visit it when you're in Lancaster
