2022 Hersheypark Cashless Overview

Know Before You Go: Cashless Frequently Asked Questions

In an effort to create more convenient dining, retail and gaming experiences for our guests, Hersheypark is now cashless.  

We have plenty of payment options available for our guests. All major debit and credit cards, Hersheypark gift cards, Apple Pay, Samsung Pay, and Google Pay will be accepted. If you only have cash at the time of your Park visit, please visit one of our five Cash-To-Card kiosks, located throughout the Park.  Please note strolling food vendors like cotton candy or lemonade are currently cash only. For games, you will need to purchase a separate Gaming Card, which you can load via cashless payment at our in-park Gaming Card kiosks. 

In place of cash, consider purchasing an e-gift card before your Park visit. Learn more.
