  • Me an my daughter's at Hershey for Train. O. A. R and Natasha Beddingfield. Great birthday for me
  • Its a pretty cool mainstream stadium for the area. They bring in plenty of headline shows and the ticket prices are reasonable. If youre heading to hershey for a small getaway, you might want to check out what venues are playing and catch a show.
  • It's not completely horrible if you're a regular and know the "good" spots. But still takes longer than desired to exit, even in a good spot. But if you just park in any random spot or wherever they want you to, it will be 2 hours getting out. And if they are using the arena and stadium simultaneously, then you can add an extra hour getting out. The most frustrating part is the parking lots have several exits around the perimeter but they are always closed and make everybody leave the same exit. Absolute incompetence. Now, thanks to the childish antics of the Clairton football team, there are metal detectors and bag searches just to get in to watch a high school football game. Arrive early because these searches hold everybody up and the lines get huge.
