This post originally appeared on MommaRambles.com
With summer closing, it’s time to get in the spirit of Halloween! Hersheypark Amusement Park is hosting an array of family-friendly events this year, and trust me, you do not want to miss out. From October 13 to the 29, on Fridays through Sundays, Hersheypark Amusement Park is transformed into the Hersheypark In The Dark Halloween attraction, offering more than 50 rides and attractions. ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park opens after dark for guests to observe the nighttime activities of more than 200 animals (as they enjoy pumpkin treats) with Creatures Of The Night.
My son is a huge fan of Halloween! Being his favorite holiday, we can’t wait to head to Hersheypark next month. For Hersheypark In The Dark, all 13 roller coasters and Hershey Triple Tower attraction will be open for guests.
Plus how cool is this… Laff Trakk coaster will turn off the lights during all operating hours. That means you can ride the coaster in absolute darkness! Hersheypark also plans to turn off the lights on its three wooden roller coasters during the last hour of each operating evening.
So what’s new at Hersheypark In The Dark for this year? There will be 13 candy locations in Hershey’s Trick-or-Treat Trail, including Treatville trick-or-treat trail in Hersheypark and ZooAmerica, and Hershey Hollow in Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction. Children ages 12 and younger are encouraged to come in costume for free treat bags and candy at each stop throughout this whimsical Halloween village.
Throughout the Park, guests will also discover festive fall-themed food and beverages, such as King-Sized pumpkin milkshakes. More of a funnel cake fan? Don’t worry, there are pumpkin funnel cakes too! Plus make sure you don’t miss any of the live performances by Screaming Mummies, a band of misfit mummies performing throwback Halloween tunes. They are just one of the many live entertainment acts performing during Hersheypark In The Dark.
