11 roller coasters, five wet and wild water rides, 20 kiddie rides, a variety of award-winning shows, and The Boardwalk at Hersheypark that features five distinctive water attractions, including East Coast Waterworks, the largest water play structure in the world; are just some of the amazing activities available at HersheyPark.
I had a good time last week, except for on some of the rides that more then one person worked at. Some of the kids that work there feel that talking to their friends is more important then getting a ride going. I looked everywhere on line to file a complaint but didn't find any. I quess that Hershey Park does not care what people think, as long as they are raking in the money. The only reason that I went in the first place was because we had free tickets I did have fun except for those rider where the kids didn't care, and that everything is soo expensive.
(+) At $10 per person, it was definitely well worth it's price. (+) $7 parking for entire day was very reasonable. (+) Christmas lights looked beautiful (+) Have wide variety of rides (-) layout and arrangement was haphazard. I liked Six Flags and Disney World where everything was along a well laid out path/road. Some of the stalls seemed like make shift ones.
Overall a pleasant experience, definitely worth visiting again.
The lines were a bit of a pain, but you have to expect it on a hot, crowded day in the summer. Still ample time to hit all the big rides. Work from the back to the front, take advantage of the 3 hours free the night before. Make sure you get to the waterpark just before they close to lessen the lines but still get it in (waterpark closes early). Take the free tour when you come in to learn a little history about Old Man Hershey. The meal plan is good if you plan to eat. Get your tickets at giant, pay the $10 for parking and park close to the tram. Most of all have some patience and enjoy the day.
family of 5 drove 6 hours could only do 2 day trip tuesday were rides and wednesday was water park tuesday was ok lines weren't to bad but wednesday paid 10 for lookers got suits on had to wait in line just to go in wave pool and for 3 hrs power was gone on that whole side of park no drinks wanted subway waited in line for 45 minutes then told it closed no who worked there said anything we left at 5 and still there was a lot still with no power was a wasteful day would of been better off at water country in new hampshire with no lines the best part was the farenheit but it is a long wait but worth it we can say now we've been to hershey and won't come back
The lines for the rides ranges from a 45min to 2hour wait, the power to the park went out earlier in the day for 2 hours, we were told everything was fixed and we should have no more problems, we stayed in line for a ride for about an hour then realized they were having technical difficulties (the attendants didn't mention a word to the clients everyone just waited in line while the ride was being serviced) we left that line and went to another ride upon reaching the front of the line there was another power outage for the second time that same day. I would never go back to this park the attendants were rude and unapologetic about the situation they definetly need trianing in customer service relations. Overall it is a shame to see how Milton Hershey's hardwork is been ruined by poor management
The rides at Hershey are great, lots of choices for young and old. The water park is a nightmare. You have to wait in line to get into the wave pool and the splash area. Why? The lifeguards then shut down the splash area and no one could tell us why!?! To leave the area there is one turn stall that you have to go through one at a time. Stampede central and very dangerous!!!
My family and I go to Hershey Park every year and use the coal cracker as our family photo. However, I am sad to say that I believe this year to be the last. The park did away with some great rides to make room for the disasterous waterpark where you have to wait inline to get in even the wave pool. What a nightmare. How on earth do you do that? The new kids area was terrific except that there were lines for that too and the lazy river. YIKES! It went from the Sweetest place on earth to the most sour!
Wonder what the numbers will be like next year.
After not being to Hershey Park for almost 30 years I could hardly wait to take my twin 5 yo's and my 2 yo. What a disaster. We goy there at noon, left at 8 and got on a total of 6 rides. It was really hot and we did not want to wait in the lines at the regular rides, some of which had over 90 people in front of us, our kids would not have made it. We heeaded down to the Boardwalk we we waited 1hr and 17 minutes to get in the wave pool, we than waited 1hr and 10 minutes to get on to the lazy river, 35 minutes for the kiddy wave pool. We than found this huge area with multiple kids water slides ect, there was no line to get in so we thought we were cool. I climbed my twins up to the top of one of the water slides only to wait another 47minutes to go down. This park had entirely too many people in it and it was obvious that they are looking only at $$$. I don't think this was the business model that old man Hershey envisioned.Since people drive a long distance to get here the only way to control crowds is to limit the amount of pre-sold tickets. When we ordered our tickets over the phone we should have been told that the lines could take up to almost 2 hours and that we might only get 5-6 rides in for the whole day. We would have obviously picked another date, come back and probably been a new loyal family customer as the park is pretty cool. Instead, we will never go again. Again, not the model Milton was looking for. I suggest that you call ahead and ask them to give you an "honest statement of business" regarding what the anticipated time/wait per ride would be for the date and time you are going. Otherwise I would look to other larger parks where the lines are 1/10th of the wait.
when you stay at a hershey property you get a sweet start. that is you get into the park an hour early. what i didn't realize is that you don't have access to any of the good coasters. it is a total waste. the only good thing is the shuttle service to the park because if you don't have this you have to deal with backed up traffic most of the time. the park feels very over crowded and being a coaster fanatic felt the storm runner was the only ride worth your time. if you have little kids 48 inches high you may have fun. it is my opinion travel a bit farther to busch gardens and have some real fun
WORST day ever...............mostly rude people in the park....adults were the worst..............lines for rides with wait times of over an hour........we managed three rides in 4 hours and one of the rides was the Monorail...............that is way too long for 12 year old children to stand in the heat to wait for a ride..........The Boardwalk was no better. Considering the cost, you would do better at one of the parks like a Busch Gardens...............We won't be going to Hershey Park again.
