Hersheypark Springtime In The Park Season Pass Holder Guide

7 Season Pass Holder Tips for the 2022 Spring Season

The 2022 Hersheypark season is almost here and we can’t wait to kick off Springtime In The Park on April 2, 2022! Get back into the SPRING of things by visiting Hersheypark for 3 fun-filled weekends of rides, coasters, Hershey Characters, ZooAmerica visits and so much more.

We know our Season Pass Holders have been counting down the days until they are back at their happy place, so we’ve created a guide with some tips and reminders for our Season Pass holders to get ready for April.

Pass Holder Tip #1 - Pick up your physical Season Pass ID early for easy access and scanning

Ticketing Services is open daily to get your photo taken before your first visit of the year.  Don’t forget that if you renewed a 2021 pass, you don’t need a new photo.

  • Head to Hersheypark parking lot located at 100 Hersheypark Drive, Hershey PA.
  • Look for the parking booth with a green checkmark.
  • Full/King Size Season Pass Pass Holders - show confirmation email to the parking attendant and park in SPH lot when space is available. 
  • Bite Size Season Pass Holders - purchase a parking voucher before visiting through the Self-Service account, show to attendant and park in the general parking lot.
  • Bring your confirmation email, printed or on your phone, to Ticketing Services to have your picture taken and pass printed.

Did you know? If you arrive at the front gate and want to skip the line at Ticketing  Services, head straight to the gate for entry. Show your confirmation email and PDF at the main gate, and once inside Hersheypark, visit an in-park Guest Services location to take a picture and receive your physical pass.

Pass Holder Tip #2 - Pick up your King Size Welcome Bag and/or Pass Holder Drink Cup

King Size Season Pass Holders can pick up their welcome bag with drink cup at Ticketing Services, open 10:30 AM - 6 PM for pick up or other Season Pass service needs.

In place of cash, consider purchasing an e-gift card before your Park visit. If you only have cash at the time of your Park visit, please visit one of our five Cash-To-Card kiosks located throughout the Park to convert cash to prepaid debit cards at no fee. Prepaid cards can be used anywhere Visa is accepted. They cannot be reloaded or refunded.
