This is a sponsored post on behalf of Hersheypark and my involvement as a 2017 Sweetest Mom but all opinions are 100% my own.
Memorial Day is the unofficial kickoff to summer–am I right? Know how I know that is true? It’s because that is when Hersheypark opens daily for the season! My family and I are heading to Hersheypark this weekend and I’m so excited to check out all the new, fun stuff.
Now, if you are planning on visiting Hersheypark this year have you thought about a season pass, even if you aren’t a local? A Hersheypark Season pass pays for itself in just three visits plus comes with lots of great perks so if you have lots of trips planned this year it might be worth getting the pass.
What exactly should you check out? I’m glad you asked!
Five Things to do at Hersheypark
Ride the NEW, Hershey Triple Tower, the first choose-your-thrill triple tower in the US. This ride features three drop towers of different heights in one, great location!
Cool off at the Boardwalk! Soak up summertime and cool off with your family at The Boardwalk At Hersheypark, included in your one-price admission! Splish-Splash the day away with fun water rides, perfect for the whole family!
Visit ZooAmerica— Zoo America is fabulous for younger kids and because it is shaded in many places it is a great way for kids to relax and unwind from the hustle and bustle of the park. It isn’t a huge zoo so you can typically walk through in an hour or two and it is easily accessible from inside of the park. If you don’t feel like visiting Hersheypark you can purchase a ticket for just Zoo America as well.
Eat at Chick-fil-A–The new Chick-fil-A location in Founder’s Way will serve a menu of fresh, handcrafted favorites for lunch and dinner Monday-Saturday. Have a seat inside while enjoying their signature hand-breaded chicken sandwiches and fresh waffle fries or grab a hand-spun milkshake or fresh-squeezed lemonade!
Visit Chocolate World and check out all the fun attractions! Chocolate World, with it’s fun and free ride and yummy treats, has expanded and added some really cool attractions, like the Create Your Own Candy Bar, Chocolate Tasting Experience and the create your Own Chocolate Bar. Don’t forget to also ride the Trolley!
