This is my home park and I love it to death, Especially when the wind is right and you can smell some of the chocolate from the nearby factories. This place has a great spread of rides for everybody, is well marked and clean. The coasters are also pretty good. My only peice of advice for everyone is to avoid going on days when there is a concert at night, the park is so crowded it is impossible to do anything.
Hershey is a great park. Great Coasters, great food. They could use another steel coaster like a Compact B&M; Floorless Coaster. Great Bear was a little too short, but still pretty fun. Overall Great park!
Hersheypark rules!!! Anyone who doesn'r love this park is insane!!! Great rides, great food, great atmosphere, and great fun!!! What more could you ask for?
Hershey is a wonderful family park. Clean, friendly, and close to several tourist spots (State Capital, Lancaster, Gettysburg, Philadelphia). New coasters pop up about every 2 years, and they keep getting better! Park is also open with limited rides for the fall season (Creatures of the Night) and Christmas (Candy Lane) so the fun continues past the summer rush.
Anyone who is a fan of wooden twisters must stop by Hershey. They have one of the best combos of them - Wildcat and Lightning Racer. Those two, alone, are worth the admission. The Comet and Great Bear also add a nice touch to their collection of coasters.
This is my FAVORITE park. Wildcat is awesome and so intense, but Great Bear is the greatest. It's a great coaster, and wou;d've been given a 10/10 if it was longer. But all the coasters are good. Lightning Racer is interesting, although it lacks the sheer intensity of Dueling Dragons, it still can give the impression of collision. Wild Mouse isn't too good, it has no intensity. I didn't go on Sidewinder, but it looks good. Sooperdooperlooper is good, making use of the terrain. It's good to just have roller coasters that don't make you think you;ll hit beans, you'll hit landscape. But although Sooperdooperlooper is good, it's funny, as it only has 1 loop. But this is the greatest park.
I went 2 years ago and I rode Lightning Racers tons. I really like them. The rest of the rides are pretty good too.
Hershey is a great park. Definatley worth going to if your in the area. Features great coasters like Great Bear, Lightning Racers, Storm Runner and Wild Cat. Storm Runner definatley to short but still worth the wait. Lightning Racers never get old no matter how many times you go on it. Hershey is definatley under rated. Great to go in early June and late August. No lines what so ever at those times.
I still cant get over how great light racers are even in the rain. Great BEar good coaster however to short but gets adrenilin going. Comet=sweet old coaster. Great Bunny hops. Bumber cars are the best around. The Kiss tower gives a great view of the whole park, family friendly. Wild cat very ruff but has a great first drop. Hershey park is one sick adventure
