Summer Fun at Hersheypark
It’s finally summertime at Hersheypark! This is the 110th year of the park, and there are a few new things at the park this year. We are season pass holders and tend to spend quite a bit of time at the park during the summer. We can’t wait to experience all Hersheypark has to offer this summer!
When we went to the park last weekend, we ran into a character we hadn’t seen before. Milk Duds. We love running into the characters whenever we go. [FTC disclosure: As part of the Sweetest Moms for 2017, I will receive some experiences free of charge in order to share some of them with you. Make sure to read below for the giveaway that Hershey Entertainment has provided for this post!]
Tickets to Hersheypark include so much fun! We often take a quick trip into ZooAmerica to see the animals. It’s a nice quiet juxtaposition to the park.
Of course, we can’t leave out The Boardwalk! What a great place to cool off on a hot day! Whether we go with a cabana for the day or just go over to swim in the afternoon, The Boardwalk is always an enjoyable time.
But now, let’s talk about some of the new additions… Chick-fil-A! One of my favorite places to eat, and now it is in my favorite park! And, there is a new drink experience called BBLz that will offer a sort of mixology with soft drinks. I can’t wait to try that one when it opens!
I can’t talk about new experiences without mentioning the Triple Towers! These are three different height towers (each with its own line) that are named for Hershey candy (Kisses, Reese’s, and Hershey Bar). I haven’t ridden them yet, but Don has been on the Reese’s Tower (middle one). He can’t wait to try the Hershey Tower!

Disclosure: I am a part of Hershey’s Sweetest Moms this year and am excited to be sharing more about Hersheypark with you! Please know that even though I may be provided with some free comps, it will never change my true opinion of Hersheypark (which is VERY good!).
I am most excited to take my boys there to ride the rides–it has been at least 3 years since we’ve gone so my 3 year old doesn’t remember it.
Kelly D says
I look forward to going on the rides with my kids, and shopping for chocolate!

I would look forward most to hanging in those cabanas at the Boardwalk! How relaxing that looks!
Deborah Caudill says
This sounds like a great place to take the kids, but it is far away from us over here in North Carolina. We have several parks close by, but I am envious of some of Hershey’s attractions and having ZooAmerica right there near the park. The Boardwalk where you can cool off would be my favorite place. It sounds fabulous. Having a Chick Fil-A right there is just icing on the cake.
moniqeu s says
this looks super fun. wish I lived closer as the kids would love this
I had no idea about ZooAmerica! My niece loves animals and I am sure would love to visit.
Sandra Watts says
I have not been there since I was a little girl. I am super excited to do it all and see what has changed.
