5 Cool Ways to Beat the Heat At Hersheypark

It’s hot outside. Really hot. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy hours of fun at Hersheypark this summer. Here are some of our tips for how to stay cool and beat the heat while spending the day at Hersheypark.

Stay hydrated.

The best way to keep your body cool is to drink water and lots of it. Each visitor is allowed to bring one unopened bottle of water into the park in their bag but there is a better way to stay hydrated. If you buy a Souvenir cup, you get free refills on water at any food and beverage location AND the handle makes it easy to attach to your backpack or stroller so you don’t have to carry it.


Go on some water rides.

Hersheypark has 9 unique water attractions in The Boardwalk At Hersheypark, plus the Coal Cracker and Tidal Force. Little kids can play in Sandcastle Cove or the Shoreline Sprayground. Families can relax on the Intercoastal Waterway or just wait at the bottom of the hill of Tidal Force for quick relief from the “Splash Zone.”.

And now through July 28, you can buy online and save $20 on regular one-day admission with our online Sizzling Summer Sale.


Take in a show.

This summer’s show in the Chevrolet Music Box Theatre is called Dance, Dance, Dance America! You can catch a show at 12:30, 2, 3:30, 5 & 6:30 PM every day through September 5. Ignite your patriotic passion and lower your body temperature in the air conditioned Chevrolet Music Box Theatre.



Go shopping.

All of the shops in the front of the park are air conditioned so you can browse for a sweet souvenir to take home with you. The gift shops have some pretty COOL stuff.



Come later in the day.

Come later in the day. The lines are shorter the temperatures are typically a little cooler and the price is lower. Get the sunset admission price when you come after 5.

And now through July 28, purchase a midweek $20 Sunset admission ticket and save more than 30% when you come after 5 PM Monday-Thursday.
