New Hersheypark Season Pass Holders: Know Before You Go

First Time Pass Holder Tips for the 2022 Season

We’re only a few weeks away from the start of the 2022 Hersheypark operating season with the opening of Springtime In The Park on April 2, 2022! Coaster rides, King Size Shakes and family fun are right around the corner. Are you ready?

There’s no better way to gear up for another year of Hersheypark Happy than by purchasing a Season Pass with unlimited visits and sweet perks all year long. If you’re on the fence about purchasing Season Passes for your family this year, here are 10 reasons to buy now

But if you already purchased a Season Pass and you’re ready to start visiting and utilizing your sweet benefits, check out some helpful tips below for new Season Pass Holders.

How-to: Pick up your physical Season Pass ID card

After you purchase your Season Pass online, you will receive a confirmation email with a PDF attached. Make sure you have this on hand when you pick up your ID card so our Guest Services team can quickly scan your confirmation. Ticketing Services is open daily, so we recommend getting your physical pass before your visit to avoid long lines opening weekend.

Visiting before April 2, 2022, or when the park is not open:

  • Head to Hersheypark parking lot located at 100 Hersheypark Drive, Hershey PA.
  • Look for the parking booth with a green checkmark.
  • Continue through the parking lot towards Tram Circle to the area closest to the front gate and The Chocolatier.
  • Bring your confirmation email, printed or on your phone, to Ticketing Services, which is temporarily located inside Hersheypark Supply Co. through March 14, to have your picture taken and pass printed. After March 14, head to Ticketing Services. 
    • Hours are 10:30 AM - 6:00 PM

Visiting on days when the park is open:

  • 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.

Tip: If you arrive at the front gate and want to skip the line at the Ticketing building, 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.

How-to: Create your Self-Service account

After you pick up your physical Season Pass, we suggest creating a Self-Service account, which allows you to access a digital Season Pass (learn more about that below), link your family’s Passes and manage them in one location, purchase drink and dining plans, update account information, and more based on your tier.

King Size Season Pass Holders can redeem the Bring-A-Friend tickets in the Self-Service Account. King Size and Full Size Season Pass Holders can purchase discounted tickets through the Self-Services account. Bite Size Season Pass Holders will need to purchase their parking through the account to receive their 50 percent discount.

Here’s a step-by-step guide to create a Self-Service account:

  1. Visit this URL and click “Create Account”.
  2. Locate your Visual ID/Barcode Number found on your Print-At-Home Season Pass Certificate.
  3. Enter the Visual ID/Barcode Number as well as your Last Name and click “Look Up Season Pass”.
  4. Create a password, then start exploring the Self-Service Account. Please note that the password must be at least 12 characters, alphanumeric, and include at least one uppercase and lowercase letter.
  5. Once you have created a Self-Service Account, you can log in at any time by clicking here.

How-to: Create a digital season pass in the Hersheypark  app

As mentioned above, you can create a digital Season Pass to scan when you visit. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. First, download the Hersheypark App on your smartphone
  2. Click on the + More in the bottom right
  3. Choose Season Pass Self-Service Account and log in
  4. In the main navigation under Season Pass Options, click Digital Season Pass

How-to: Access perks

Full Size and King Size Season Pass Holders enjoy special monthly discounts, offers and sweet rewards throughout the year, as listed in Season Pass Rewards Calendar. When redeeming your monthly rewards at Hersheypark, eligible Pass Holders can show their pass at the locations and simply scan to redeem. No more logging into the Self Service account and printing a voucher for redemption! 

Tip: Don’t forget to show your Season Pass for discounts around town, including unlimited visits to ZooAmerica, 10 percent off all Dining in Hershey locations, 15 percent off dining and shopping at Hershey’s Chocolate World, discounts at MeltSpa by Hershey and The Spa At The Hotel Hershey on select days, and more.

How-to: Utilize the app for ride wait times, map, mobile order
