Soak up the Summer Fun at Hersheypark

Ticket Offer: Everyone Pays Kids' Price Through June 30

Today marks the official first day of summer and, if you ask us, nothing screams "summer is here" quite like a visit to Hersheypark amusement park. 

Hersheypark is home to more than 70 rides and attractions, an entire water park and a walk-through zoo - all of which are included in the Park's one-price admission. Learn more about these three sweet experiences that allow guests of all ages to discover their own #HersheyparkHappy this summer.

Ride all day long

Parkgoers looking to enjoy the summer thrills are in for a sweet treat with 14 coasters to choose from at Hersheypark. Teens and adults will love the rush of Great Bear, an inverted steel coaster that leaves your feet dangling as it lifts 90 feet off the ground and launches into a thrilling yet smooth course of drops, loops, corkscrews and a zero g-roll; Fahrenheit, which climbs a steep 121-foot hill before plummeting down the signature 97-degree drop; and Skyrush, which climbs 200 feet into the air before flying downhill at 75 mph from a thrilling, winged-seat coaster train!

Guests of all ages can enjoy family-friendly rides like the historic Carrousel, which marks its 100th anniversary in 2019, and Reese’s Cupfusion, an all-new interactive gaming ride featuring the most targets in the world and six unique ways to play. The attraction, which opened Memorial Day Weekend, merges the world’s love of chocolate and peanut butter to create a sweet, full-sensory adventure for the entire family. Guests riding Reese's Cupfusion are assigned an important mission to become an agent, protect the factory and ensure the world is never deprived of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.

Cool off at the Water Park

The Boardwalk at Hersheypark water park, an 11-acre water park with more than one million gallons of water, is included with a Hersheypark ticket. Guests can make a splash on more than 16 attractions, including Breakers Edge Water Coaster, the first hydromagnetic coaster at Hersheypark, and Whitecap Racer, the longest mat racing slide in the world. Those looking to take a break from the thrills can kick back and relax on our lazy river, which marks its 10th anniversary this year. 

Walk on the wild side at the Zoo

ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park is our 11-acre, walk-through zoo that cares for more than 200 animals native to five regions of the North American continent. Admission is free for Hersheypark guests when they enter via a walkway bridge located in the Kissing Tower Hill area of the Park; hours vary. On average, it takes guests about one hour to walk through the entire Zoo. Guests may see mountain lions, bears, otters, alligators, wolves, porcupines, and more during a visit to ZooAmerica.
