Hold Onto Summer Fun At Hersheypark

It’s time to face facts; summer is coming to an end. All the telltale signs are here: children are back in school, local pools are closing, and the pumpkin spice flavor has invaded grocery stores by way of cereals, cookies, coffee, and even toothpaste. It’s true; summer is going fast. There’s not much time left to waste then. Fit all of the summer fun you can into these last few weeks of sunny weather, warm days, and cool nights.

Read below for the best ways to hold on to summer in Hershey PA before it’s going, going, gone.

Get One More Splash
Soak up every last minute of summer fun with a visit to The Boardwalk before it closes for the season September 5. You’ll get to cool off, slide away, and wave goodbye to summer in the sweetest way possible. Plus, admission is included in your one-price Hersheypark admission ticket, so you’ll save on your final splashes of the season.



Swim On In
The Boardwalk may be closing but the splash-filled fun is going strong all year long at Hershey’s Water Works at Hershey Lodge. Plan a weekend getaway to Hershey Lodge and get your feet wet in the zero entry pool, slide down Twizzlers Twists water slides, and take on the Reese’s Water Walk! Plus, enjoy summer drinks and eats at Cocoa Cabana.  



Fit In Some Weekend Thrills
Don’t let school or work get in the way of excitement and thrills. Pack all the fun you can into September Weekends at Hersheypark. Ride all of the 13 coasters, from mild to wild, shoot and score to win on great games, and taste your way through your favorite eats.



Catch A Showstopper
Keep the soundtrack of summer playing all through September! Take in all of the sweet shows scheduled during Hersheypark Summer Concert Series, including GRAMMY award winner, Gloria Gaynor’s show September 11. It’s the perfect way to end summer on a high note.



Savor Taste
End summer with a good taste in your mouth with a wonderful weekend of food and wine at the Seventh Annual Wine & Food Festival presented by The Hotel Hershey. Enjoy a weekend of spirited events including a comedy show, local winery tour, a blending class, The Grand Tasting, and more! Make sure to raise a glass to a sensational summer!



Be A Social Butterfly
Take time to stop and smell the roses before summer fades away with a visit to Hershey Gardens. While you’re there, make sure to tour the all-new Milton & Catherine Hershey Conservatory featuring a year-round butterfly atrium, educational and horticultural wing, and more! Admission is complementary to guests of The Official Resorts of Hersheypark.
