What To Do At Hersheypark’s Christmas Candylane
You thought Hersheypark was just open during the summer, right!? Sorry you are wrong! Only only does Hersheypark have spring, summer and fall activities but they have Christmas Candylane in the winter.
Tickets are $19 and free for kids 2 and under. BUT if you have a season pass Christmas Candylane is included in your season pass. Be sure to check out ALL the reasons I love my Hersheypark Season Pass.
5 Roller Coasters Are Open
Even in the chill of winter Hersheypark has rollercoasters open for you! Cocoa Cruiser, sooperdooperLooper, Wildcat, Wild Mouse, and Laff Trakk which as Christmas-themed décor this holiday season!
Meet Santa and His Reindeer
YES! The actual reindeer that help deliver presents are her at Hersheypark! At least that is what the reindeer wrangler told me when we were discussing the 9 live reindeer in the enclosure. Be sure to chat with the keepers from Zoo America when you visit the reindeer. They have lots of great reindeer information to share with you!
Santa is in the Sweetest Place On Earth and wants to meet you! Find Santa, tell him what is on your wish list this year and take some photos with him.
Enjoy breakfast or lunch at Hersheypark Place for a delicious meal and entertainment from Mrs. Clause and her friends. There is singing, story telling and a treat for everyone 12 and under. Bring your camera because there will be lots of photo opportunities with Santa himself. Reservations are required.

12 Days of Christmas
Follow the lights and see the story of the 12 Days of Christmas as told my lights. It is pretty fun to hear people singing the different parts of the song throughout the park.
I love our refillable mug from the summer, and you can still use it during Christmas Candylane, but for those hot beverages they have a new insulated mug. Free refills on the day of purchase or .99 for the rest of the season.
**Bonus** Season pass holders get 15% off AND the option to purchase the GREEN Season Pass Holder mug.
A Music Box Christmas
Warm up at the Music Box Theater and watch ‘A Music Box Christmas’. A mysterious music box found in Grandma’s attic brings the magic of Christmas to life in this delightful show that “kids” of all ages will enjoy. Find the schedule here.
Chickie’s And Pete’s
We became HUGE fans of this summer at Hersheypark. Know that they DO have one of the locations open and you can get your crab fry fix ONE LAST TIME!
Also look for some of your favorite locations to take on a holiday name!
If you have never been ice skating or want to add more fun to your Hersheypark adventure they have ice skating available. There is a small fee ($3) but it is so worth it!
NOEL in The Hollow
If you are a fan of holiday lights and more specifically, lights set to music, then The Hollow is the place for you! 20,000 lights set to music that cycle through every half hour starting at 5 pm.
More Photo Opportunities
I am a sucker for taking photos and making my kids take photos. Hersheypark has great vignettes set up all over the park for you to snap a pic. Perhaps one will make it onto your holiday card!
