June Sweet Happenings


  • It’s June and the lazy, hazy days of summer are upon us! Hersheypark is now open every day through Labor Day and offers guests lots of ways to keep cool.
    • The Boardwalk at Hersheypark features 13 unique water rides including a lazy river and wave pool.. If you are a thrill seeker, try the array of water slides available at Coastline Plunge or test your “surfing” skills on Waverider.
    • Don’t forget to keep hydrated during the summer! The Park offers an array of cold drinks, Icees, ice cream, and the new Makin’ Whoopie Pies stand in the Boardwalk featuring ice cream sandwiches!
  • Speaking of “heating up,” the stages and midways are alive with the sound of new entertainment options! Treat yourself to “Dance, Dance: America!” and take a musical journey through time, or watch and listen to The Soda Pops rock to the music of Earth, Wind & Fire, Chicago, and many more. Strolling through the Park you might encounter the Hersheypark Band, 10 zany musicians who are the sweetest band in town, and Cocoa Rhythm Factory, drummers who never miss a beat as they engage the audience in their show.
  • Don’t forget: ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park is open daily year-round and included in your one-price admission when entering through Hersheypark.
