Hershey Park is a chocolate themed amusement park completely owned by the Hershey Entertainment & Resorts
Company. This Pennsylvania park features over 60 rides and attractions, including 11 rollercoasters, covering over
110 acres. Hershey Park includes an in-park zoo called ZOOAMERICA - North American Wildlife Park and an in-park
waterpark called The Boardwalk at Hersheypark. The amusement park also offers many different stage shows which
can be found at Hersheypark Amphitheater and the Music Box Theater.
Hershey Park is made up of ten themed areas, the first of which is Tudor Square. Tudor square is just outside of the
gates, is free to enter and features shops and restaurants. The other themed areas are Rhineland, Founders Circle,
The Hollow, Minetown, Music Box Way, Pioneer Frontier, Midway America, ZOOAMERICA - North American Wildlife
Park and The Boardwalk at Hersheypark.
ZOOAMERICA is an 11-acre zoo with over 200 animals. The zoo focuses on the animals of North America. You can
visit the zoo as part of your Hershey Park visit or you can buy a ticket for just the zoo.
Nearby Hershey Park is Hershey’s Chocolate World, a free visitor’s center with restaurants, gift shops, a 3D movie, a
bus tour about Mr. Hershey, and a chocolate factory themed ride. There is a fee for some activities in this area.
This is a fun area. We visited in February when they had a very delicious special for all visitors. We paid one price
and got "samples" at most of the restaurants and concession areas. We did a lot of the activities including the 3D
movie, ride and took a tour of the area. I would recommend all of these activities.
