Hersheypark® was founded in 1906 by Milton S. Hershey as a leisure park for employees of his chocolate company. Now covering 110 acres and featuring over 70 rides and attractions, Hersheypark® welcomes families and thrill seekers of all ages! Throughout Hersheypark® you’ll find themed areas reflecting the chocolate history and delicious inspiration behind the park, including Founder’s Way and Kissing Tower Hill. Your visit will be incomplete without meeting the beloved Hershey’s Characters for a photo op and exploring the ZooAmerica® North American Wildlife Park! Not to mention the delicious chocolate menu items and treats you’ll enjoy that put a “kiss” atop a truly Hersheypark HappySM day!
Shake off the snow and welcome the sunshine at Hersheypark® Springtime In The ParkSM. Rides come out of hibernation for two weekends in April, making it the perfect time to stretch your legs and enjoy a cool walk in the park.
