One Sweet Minute: Welcome back to Hershey, July 2020

Welcome back to The Sweetest Place On Earth! The first half of 2020 has been, undoubtedly, strange. Let's start fresh! As you prepare for your visit, please know that we are operating in accordance with guidelines outlined by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, Pennsylvania Department of Health, and industry partners.

Hersheypark Happy

Hersheypark will welcome guests back on July 3 with exclusive days for Season Pass holders on July 1 and 2. As part of the summer opening weekend, Hersheypark will debut Candymonium, the tallest, fastest, longest, and sweetest coaster at the Park. It spans seven acres at the new entrance of Hershey’s Chocolatetown, a 23-acre development featuring an entirely reimaged arrival experience honoring the legacy of our Milton S. Hershey. 


ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park is open daily. The Zoo recently welcomed three adorable Canada lynx kittens, and two additions to the Gray Wolf pack!

Cheers to summer!

Restaurants are open at Hershey Lodge, The Hotel Hershey and downtown. Options include Cocoa Beanery, Fire & Grain, Hershey Grill and The Bears' Den at Hershey Lodge; Chef's Market, Harvest, Iberian Lounge, The Circular and Trevi 5 at The Hotel Hershey; and Devon Seafood + Steak and Houlihan's Restaurant + Bar in downtown Hershey. Plus, Hershey Grill, The Bears' Den, Devon Seafood + Steak and Houlihan's Restaurant + Bar also offer convenient curbside pickup.

Relaxation at Spas

Both The Spa At The Hotel Hershey and MeltSpa by Hershey are open and ready to indulge you in sweet relaxation! Enjoy the Vacation For A Day package at The Spa At The Hotel Hershey. And the new Lemongrass Massage at MeltSpa by Hershey is the perfect summer treat. 

Hershey Gardens, The Hershey Story Museum and Hershey's Chocolate World

Soak in summer at Hershey Gardens. Guests are encouraged to purchase timed tickets online prior to arrival. The popular Butterfly Atrium is also open! Check the website for hours of operations and safety guidelines.

The Hershey Story Museum is now open! Visitors are encouraged to pre-purchase a timed ticket to secure their spot as they take a step back in time to learn about the life of our founder, Milton S. Hershey. The Chocolate Lab will resume holding classes on Friday, July 3. Lab tickets are sold on a first-come, first-served basis at the admissions desk. Please be advised that new safety protocols are now in place. The Pantry Café slated to open in early July.  

We know you've missed the delicacies from Hershey’s Chocolate World. Just in time for summer, Hershey's Chocolate World is welcoming visitors to gather and create memories. Hershey’s Chocolate Tour and Create Your Own Candy Bar attractions are open, along with shopping and food, desserts, and your favorite Hershey's candy. To help manage capacity, Hershey’s Chocolate World is reducing the number of visitors who can be in the building at any one time. Guests are asked to secure a free timed entry pass to enjoy all that Hershey’s Chocolate World has to offer.

We can't wait to see you!
