Enter to win a pair of Hersheypark passes.

Hersheypark is the ultimate in summer fun.

As locals, we’re lucky to have this incredible amusement-and-waterpark-in-one so accessible to us year-round. This year, we scored Hersheypark Season Passes for the family, and already it’s been great.

My 3 Tips for Hersheypark Locals

Summer is here, and hopefully that means vacations, day trips, and exploring nearby hot spots like Hersheypark! Of course, summer is also tourist season, so here are my top ways to navigate Hersheypark as a local.

1 | Pick the Best Day to Visit

If able, visit Hersheypark on a weekday rather than a weekend. Weekends are more likely to be packed with tourists and vacationers, while on weekdays you’ll see more pass holders and groups. View Hersheypark hours here. A less crowded park means lower wait times. Speaking of …

2 | Download the Hersheypark App

At first I was like, ugh, another app — but the Hersheypark app is one you’ll use throughout your visit. You can look up rides, find the nearest restroom, check wait times, and even get walking directions from wherever you in the park to wherever you want to go! If you’re a pass holder, you can even link in your pass, purchase add-ons, and much more.

3 | Consider Add-ons

If you only get one chance to make it to Hersheypark this season, consider making the most of your visit with a Fast Pass or an all-day drink or dining package to make the day a breeze. You can view all add-ons here — and you can either buy online in advance or upgrade at an HPGO Kiosk inside the park!

You also can upgrade your regular tickets to a season pass — it pays for itself in just three visits!

Don’t forget! For even more, HERSHEY’S Chocolate World is right next door and always free, and ZooAmerica is included with your ticket — and accessible from right inside Hersheypark.

This year, I was selected as one of Hershey Entertainment & Resorts’ “Sweetest Families” bloggers, and I’ll be sharing my experiences and insights all year long! As part, I’m thrilled to share this giveaway for two Hersheypark 1-Day passes to one lucky reader. Complete the widget below to enter.

This giveaway is open to Pennsylvania residents 21 and older only.
