COVID-19 Impact Across Hershey Entertainment & Resorts

List of Closings, Postponements and Cancellations in Hershey, Pa.

The COVID-19 situation and resulting impacts are rapidly evolving. Here is the latest information on operational changes, closings, postponements and cancellations across the destination. We will continue to update this list with new developments. Guests are also encouraged to check relevant websites and social media channels for the latest information.


We continue to closely monitor conditions and listen to guidance from national health officials, government agencies and our local health experts. 

Given the information currently available, and assuming Pennsylvania lifts the closure order of non-life sustaining businesses, Hersheypark is working to open in early June. In preparation for opening, we continue to research and implement preventive measures as recommended by state and federal agencies that will enhance our existing high standards of cleanliness through additional rigorous cleaning procedures. 

Guest information: If you need assistance, our Guest Experience Team is available by email at Hersheypark@HersheyPA.com.
