Final Week of Hersheypark Christmas Candylane and Hershey Sweet Lights

Last Chance to Enjoy The Holiday Cheer in Hershey, PA

Christmas may have come and gone, but visitors to The Sweetest Place On Earth can still enjoy the holiday cheer at Hersheypark Christmas Candylane and Hershey Sweet Lights presented by T-Mobile. Both of these holiday attractions are open daily through Jan. 3, 2021. 

Hersheypark Christmas Candylane

Christmas Candylane is located inside Hersheypark and features millions of twinkling lights, family rides and thrilling coasters (weather permitting), all nine of Santa's reindeer, sweet treats, and more.

See more lights than ever before

  • Five million sparkling lights - the most ever for the seasonal celebration - deck the halls of Hersheypark this year. Guests can see the NOEL light show featuring more than 250,000 dancing lights choreographed to Christmas music. Additional showtimes are available to encourage social distancing. Crowd size will be monitored for each show. Guests can also stop by the 50-foot Kissmas Tree display as they watch the light show.

Experience the first winter in Hershey's Chocolatetown

  • Christmas Candylane marks the first winter in Hershey’s Chocolatetown, an all-new region at Hersheypark honoring the legacy of our founder, Milton S. Hershey. Thrill-seekers can ride the all-new Candymonium hypercoaster, weather permitting; take a ride on the historic Carrousel in its new home; snap a festive photo in front of the iconic Kisses Fountain decked out in its holiday best; shop in the all-new Hersheypark Supply Co. and HP Collections shops; and more.

Take a ride on family favorites, weather permitting

  • A unique blend of family-friendly rides and coasters are slated to be open for Christmas Candylane, weather permitting. Guests can enjoy holiday thrills on Candymonium, Sidewinder, Wild Mouse, Wildcat, and Cocoa Cruiser. Please note that certain rides may close when temperatures approach 38 degrees or lower. You can view our weather policy here.

Get an up-close look at Santa's reindeer

  • Hersheypark is the only place in the Northeast where guests can get an up-close look at all nine of Santa's reindeer, including Rudolph. Guests can stop by Santa’s Reindeer Stables during all hours of operating through Jan. 3, 2021, to see the reindeer in a newly expanded viewing area. Capacity in this space will be carefully monitored and guests will be able to view the reindeer from ground markers placed throughout the area. 

See the decorated trees in TREEville

  • A new holiday experience is offered at Christmas Candylane this year! We’ve decked The Boardwalk with a festive trail of more than a dozen trees that share the stories of The Sweetest Place On Earth. While guests explore, they can take a family selfie and play along with our all-new photo scavenger hunt to receive a complimentary treat.

Warm up with hot chocolate and other sweet treats 

  • There is no better place to enjoy some hot chocolate than The Sweetest Place On Earth. Signature hot chocolate is available for purchase during Christmas Candylane in all-day souvenir mugs to keep guests warm. Other sweet treats like Frozen Hot Chocolate and Peppermint King Size Shakes, a Cranberry King Size Donut and Christmas Cookie Bucket offer a unique taste of the holidays.
