We hope you enjoy the foods available to you while visiting! Be sure to visit the Park this summer to check out many of our food locations that offer these allergy-friendly foods.
Hersheypark Allergen Friendly menu offerings consist of items prepared without certain allergen-containing ingredients. Because we have multiple sources of food allergens in our kitchens there is risk that cross-contact may occur during the preparation and cooking of these items. Due to these circumstances, we are unable to guarantee that any menu item can be completely free of any allergen ingredient. Before placing your order please inform us of your food allergy and/or sensitivity so we can do everything possible to safely accommodate your dietary needs.
