Choose from more than 65 rides and attractions, including two dozen kiddie rides and nearly 10 water rides at The Boardwalk. Daily live shows run every 15 min., ranging from tap dancing to country hoe-downs, and are included with park admission. You can also visit ZooAmerica for free with your Hersheypark ticket. Throughout the park, stop for photos with The Hershey’s Bar and other candy mascots.

Fall: Costumed kids ages 12 & younger can go trick or treating around the park during the day, while the nighttime "Hersheypark in the Dark" features rides re-named in the Halloween spirit: Wicked Racer (Lightning Racer) and Scaredy Cat (Wildcat).

New in 2014:
Deliciously fun additions to Hersheypark’s mix include the Cocoa Cruiser, a family coaster ideal for a kid’s first roller-coaster ride; a classic Teacups spinner; and a gentle, low-speed Sweet Swing. Chickie’s and Pete’s and a frozen yogurt stand join the food lineup, and the entryway queue gets shorter with the addition of a new ticketing building near the tram circle, separate from the Front Gate
