Hersheypark is designed to give people of all ages with an amazing day of fun and excitement. Adults and older kids will love the thrills of mega coasters like Great Bear, Coastline Plunge, Fahrenheit, and the Fender Bender. Younger kids can get in on the fun and excitement at Hersheypark with rides like Bizzy Bees, Helicopters, the Mini Scrambler, the Pony Parade, and Sandcastle Cove. Your whole family will love riding a variety of family-friendly rides together like Frontier Flyers, the Ferris Wheel, and Bayside Pier. There are also plenty of water rides at Hersheypark, so you will want to be sure to bring your bathing suit and towel if you visit on a warm day. Some of the water park rides include East Coast Waterworks, the Coal Cracker, and Tidal Force.
When you visit Hersheypark, you can plan to spend a full day enjoying the rides, but you will also want to make time to enjoy some of the many live shows at the park. There are scheduled shows as well as strolling shows and even Hershey characters walking through the park to greet you. Guests can also enjoy fun annual events such as the Trick or Treat Trail and Hersheypark in the Dark where they'll be able to ride some of the park's favorites after dark!
