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.

  • We went to Hershey Park and we liked it. It had good parking. It had a ride and you can get a free piece of candy when it is finished. We had a lot of fun. We ate food and got drinks and the food was good. The candy was good. The staff were nice and friendly. We will probably go back again when we go back to Pennsylvania.
  • Great for Kids/Parents/Adults (basically anyone wanting to have fun) ! There are thrill rides for the daring and calmer rides for the less so. It is however best to visit during Summer (even though it's busier) because most rides and concessions are closed in Winter. There are live performances and 2 accapela groups that wonder the park singing! Lines for rides may usually be pretty long, but it's worth it for how happy a ride can make a person! Get out there and get outta your comfort zone! You won't regret it!
  • We went to Hershey Park for a Christmas time/ holiday / family vacation... And we really did have fun! The lights were great, the themes were great! The kids 11, 10, 9 and 4 all had a blast! It wasn't freezing the day we went so I guess we got lucky there. We had purchased the tickets ahead of time so the price was fantastic and there really was plenty to do for the entire day!
  • It is a neat place to visit. The ride through tour was so much fun for the little kids. They absolutely loved it. The store is huge. The activities are quite expensive. For a family of 6 to participate in the chocolate bar making would have been well over $125. That's just outrageous to me. But all in all it was a good time.
  • Hershey Park is a great family fun spot. If you go plan on spending a day or two. There is lots to do and see. There is a zoo connected to the park for the children that is cool. Also going to chocolate World is an absolute must. Delish fresh chocolate and different things to see and in joy in there. I go to the park at least once every year and Chocolate World several times a year. The park is also open in other seasons like Christmas and other holidays. Plead go and enjoy you time there.
