Come and join in on the fun with Hersheypark’s 111th season! New food, new fun and so much more for 2018!

My family and I love to visit Hersheypark, it is something I loved as a child and something that I love sharing with my family now as a mom. I am excited to be a Sweetest Mom Ambassador for Hershey PA this year, I will have so much to share with you all to help celebrate Hersheypark 111th season (that is amazing isn’t it?) from new Boardwalk attractions to cool concerts to yummy food trucks. There is so much to look forward to for Summer 2018 at Hersheypark the fun starts on April 27th, the opening day for the summer season! Here is more information from Hershey: 

Hersheypark amusement park will open for its’ 111th summer season on April 27, with The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park opening May 26 with two highly anticipated new water attractions. In addition, new food offerings, food truck events and entertainment will delight guests this summer. Two new family water attractions, Breakers Edge Water Coaster and Whitecap Racer, will open May 26 for guests to enjoy in The Boardwalk At Hersheypark. Breakers Edge Water Coaster will be the world’s first HydroMAGNETIC water coaster with flying saucer turns. This 14th coaster will provide splash-filled hills and sweet thrills at Hersheypark. Whitecap Racer will be the world’s longest mat racer. Both rides are family-friendly with a height requirement of a Reese’s category and up (42” and up).  

2018 will feature the introduction of food trucks in Hersheypark.

Two Hersheypark food trucks - Sunkissed Beach BBQ and Smiling Taco-ria - will also open later this Summer in Hersheypark to offer guests delicious mobile offerings.
