Are you ready to take a ride on the BEST roller coasters at Hersheypark?
Most northern United States theme park lovers are mostly familiar with Hersheypark. To backtrack a bit, Hershey was a company town created by Milton Hershey.
Amongst his plans was a leisure park for the employees. On May 30, 1096, Hersheypark was born!
The first big event was a baseball game with other events and performances that took place on the land over the years. Hersheypark would not get its first coaster, Wildcat, until 1923, which is still there today. It was placed to commemorate the park’s 20th anniversary.
In the park’s 115-year history, 142 attractions have come and go, with 72 currently in operation today. It now boasts several themed lands including the latest addition, Chocolatetown, which was the park’s most expensive addition in the park’s history.
Hersheypark has become a rite of passage for some families to experience their first coasters and perfect for solo travelers to get their thrills, enjoy delicious food and have a great time.
Guests can even take a quick stroll to Zooamerica, which showcases over 200 animals from five regions of north America year-round and part of your park ticket admission.
