Hersheypark® (known as Hershey Park until 1970) was founded in 1906 by Milton S. Hershey as a leisure park for the employees of his chocolate company. Now covering 110 acres and featuring over 70 rides and attractions including the water play area The Boardwalk and ZooAmerica® North American Wildlife Park, Hersheypark welcomes families and thrill seekers of all ages for sweet summer fun on weekends before Memorial Day, seven days a week from Memorial Day to Labor Day, and then weekends only in September. See all operating days and times.
Hersheypark is one sweet park! Even before entering the park, you’ll discover which candy category you are based on your height. Then, look for the signs at each ride entrance to see if your candy brand is eligible to ride. Throughout the Park you’ll find themed areas reflecting the chocolate history and delicious inspiration behind the park, including Founder’s Way and Kissing Tower Hill, and no visit to Hersheypark is complete without meeting the beloved Hershey’s Characters! Snap pictures, dance, and even dine with the Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar, Hershey’s Kisses, and others during your trip to the park. And of course, there are plenty of delicious chocolate menu items and treats to be enjoyed to make your day at the park truly Hersheypark Happy℠!
Hersheypark® has rides from mild to wild! For thrill seekers, the 13 roller coasters offer hills, twists, turns and superdooper loops for everyone from first-time riders to those who have done it all!
