Hersheypark One of Google's Top Searched Travel Destinations

Happiness is best when shared (and searched!)

According to Google's 2017 Year in Search, Hersheypark was the third most searched destination in the “travel destinations (activities)” section.

Google’s 2017 Year in Search showcases the people, topics, events, and places that captured the world’s attention this year. Google studied an aggregation of trillions of searches (or queries) that people searched on Google, used data from Google Trends and filtered out spam and repeat queries to build lists that best reflect the spirit of 2017.

The Year in Search is meant to reflect "the spirit of the times" and the trending queries are the searches that had the highest spike in traffic over a sustained period in 2017 as compared to 2016.

In its 110th season, 2017 was a big year for Hersheypark! Springtime in the Park marked the opening of Hershey Triple Tower, the first choose your thrill drop towers in the United States. The sooperdooperLooper marked its 40th anniversary as an iconic looping coaster on the East Coast and on July 4th, Hersheypark became the first permanent home of BBLz, a whimiscal mixology experience with Pepsi (winning a Best New Innovation in Food and Beverage Brass Ring award from The International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions). 

In August, Hersheypark announced plans for two new family thrill attractions for The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park in 2018 – Breakers Edge Water Coaster and Whitecap Racer. Breakers Edge Water Coaster will be the world’s first HydroMAGNETIC water coaster with flying saucer turns and the 14thcoaster at Hersheypark. Whitecap Racer will be the world’s longest mat racer.

Thanks to all of our guests who visited (and searched!) This year has been a thrilling ride and we can't wait for 2018!
