35 Years of Christmas Candylane

For 35 years, families have been making holiday memories at Hersheypark Christmas Candylane.

We're excited to announce that Christmas Candylane is now officially open from November 16, 2018 through January 1, 2019 (hours vary by day) with new offerings and familar favorites.

So we've made a list and we're checking it twice to ensure you get the most of your Hersheypark Christmas Candylane experience!

  1. See four million twinkling lights throughout the Park. It takes our team months to prepare and the results are stunning. Share your favorite views using #ChristmasCandylane and #HersheyparkHappy.

  2. Visit Santa’s Stables: all 9 reindeer are there to wow children and adults alike during all operating hours. Learn more about the reindeer.

  3. Enjoy more than 45 rides including family favorites like the Kissing Tower, Dry Gulch Railroad or Skyview for the best view of the light displays. And who doesn't love the Hersheypark Carrousel, at 99 years young! The oldest ride in the Park features “jumpers” and stationary wooden horses that are painted in amazing, opulent colors.

  4. Conquer all six coasters (weather permitting) including Sidewinder, Wildcat, sooperdooperLooper, Cocoa Cruiser, Wild Mouse and holiday-themed Laff Trakk.
