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.

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.
