Spring Away with Family Activities

Spring. It’s the season that wakes us up and says, “Time to go!” So, pack up and prepare for a getaway full of kids’ activities and spring things to do for the entire family.


Springtime in the ParkSM

Start with roaring coasters, dips, drops, hills and thrills in Hershey. An early season trip to Hersheypark® promises family fun entertainment with rides, shows, and tasty treats. This year, Springtime in the ParkSM unveils the first choose your thrill tower in the United States – Hershey Triple TowerTM. Don’t miss your chance to be one of the first to strap into a seat and scream!


Just the Ticket

Next, grab one of the best seats in the house for an inventive theatrical production. The Popcorn Hat Players are the region’s premiere children’s theatre, specializing in imaginatively interactive shows. With audience suggestions and participation, no two performances are the same. Don’t let the show go on without you!

No Rain on Your Parade

April showers bring May flowers, but the next rainy day won’t be a wash out. Consider this list of indoor fun if the rain rushes in during your trip. The sky is the limit at Sky Zone, an indoor trampoline park where kids of all ages can bounce off the walls (literally!). Bring it back down to earth at the Whitaker Center, where interactive exhibits like Forces of Nature teach the wonders of weather around the globe. With the Carlisle Sports Emporium, Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction, and the Hershey Gardens Conservatory also waiting for you, you won’t need a rain check!


Whether you’re searching for screams, squeals, or standing ovations, SPRING away to the Hershey Harrisburg Region with your family.
