Can I bring a picnic lunch into the park?
Hersheypark does not permit food or drink to be brought into the Park. Visitors with special dietary needs can review the food and beverage information. The Outpost restaurant features allergen-friendly food. Locker storage is available at the outside picnic areas and guests are encouraged to keep non-essential items in their vehicles.
How many days should you spend at Hersheypark?
My advice is that you need a minimum of 2 days to fully experience Hersheypark. One day for the park with its rollercoasters and Zoo America and another day for The Boardwalk at Hersheypark. It all can be done in one day but you will not get to ride all the rides you would want and your day will be rushed.
We are season pass holders and we will take the day or just an afternoon to enjoy the water park. We skip all the rides and hit the wave pool and the lazy river. The kids ride the flumes and we cool off at an amazing waterpark.
Is parking free at Hersheypark?
Parking is not included in your Hersheypark day ticket. But starting in 2020 parking is included with select season passes. Just show your season pass to the parking attendant to be scanned and drive right in. Cash and charge are accepted to pay for parking.
Do Hersheypark tickets expire?
Tickets are non-refundable. All tickets expire in the season and year for which they are purchased; with the expiration date indicated on the ticket.
Is the water park included in the park ticket??
Yes! One of my favorite features of the Hersheypark ticket is that The Boardwalk is INCLUDED in your base ticket. Also, you can visit Zoo America with your ticket. 3 parks in one ticket.
