Hersheypark Stadium Reviews
I have seen many sporting events and enjoyed many concerts in this venue. Lots of parking, lots of seats, great staff, good food vendors. more »
Great venue and easy to get too. Parking is well laid out. The few concerts I've been too have nice weather which is good as there isn't any covered seats. Prices are usual event mark up, though you can find a decent beer that's actually 16 Oz from vendors. The only thing holding back a 5 star is the actual seats, they are terrible and barely usable. Good news is that you won't spend much time sitting. Sound quality and mastering is pretty good, maybe a hair loud, but mixed well enough. Not my favorite but above average.
I went here to see Zac Brown Band live in concert. There were a lot of seats and the tickets were well priced. I recommend that you see a concert here. Also, right next to the stadium is Hershey Park. It is so fun. My experiences at these places were extremely memorable. I hope you have as much fun as my family and I did at these places.
