Fodor's Review

At Hersheypark you can enjoy thrilling rides and socialize with 6-foot-tall Hershey Bars and Reese's Peanut Butter Cups. Advertised as the "Sweetest Place on Earth," the park's 100-plus acres has more than 65 rides and attractions, a "Boardwalk" with a lazy river and wave pool, a wildlife park called ZooAmerica with hundreds of animals, as well as tons of live entertainment options. Begun in 1907, Hersheypark is prized as one of America's cleanest and greenest theme parks. Among its historical rides are the Comet, a 1946-vintage wooden roller coaster, and a carousel built in 1919 that has 66 hand-carved wooden horses. For thrill seekers, some of the newer rides include the exciting Lightning Racer double-track wooden racing coaster and the Great Bear steel inverted coaster. There are also big-name concerts and sporting events at Hersheypark Stadium, the Star Pavilion, and Giant Center.
