Is the boardwalk a separate ticket purchase than Hershey Park tickets? Or can you purchase one ticket to include both amusement and water park?

Good evening Maria,
Hersheypark features a one-price admission, which includes access to The Boardwalk at Hersheypark, ZooAmerica and all other rides and entertainment. There is not a separate admission ticket to The Boardwalk.
Thank you.
