Hersheypark (HP) Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

Found the contrast to a 4hr wait interesting.  It was a bit surreal to ride a brand new B&M for the better part of a half hour without seeing another guest.  Not everyone's preference, granted.  I enjoy raucous full trains and Zen solo rides alike.

In spite of it being one of my absolute favorite parks, I usually only make the trip out to Hershey once a year. However, thanks to my 2020 plans going right into the crapper I'm working with what I'v

Just realized I posted this TR on page 420. Score!

It would be faster and a better use of your time to leave the park, drive to the airport, fly to Orlando, Uber to Seaworld and ride Mako than to wait 4 hours for Candymonium...   (Or you cou

These rides MAY close when temperatures approach 38 degrees or lower. They MAY NOT open unless temperatures are above 38 degrees and rising: Fahrenheit; Ferris Wheel; Great Bear; Hershey Triple Tower; Kissing Tower; Lightning Racer; Capital BlueCross Monorail; Sidewinder; Skyrush; sooperdooperLooper; Storm Runner; Wild Mouse; and Wildcat. Candymonium may close as temperatures approach 34 degrees.

So Candymonium can operate in lower temperatures because of these bogie heaters:

At night they give a nice glow:

These are the first in the US, no?

Maybe on a B&M hyper (not sure about Raging Bull) but wheel heaters are becoming increasingly common.

I just caught the part about how it will close at 34 degrees even though it has wheel heaters. That's absolutely adorable.

I know you are subtly referencing Nitro here. I am curious: what is the lowest temperature you have seen Nitro run?

Genuine question from a West Coast-er who thought 40 degrees at SFMM's Holiday in the Park was absolutely freezing. 😂

New restrictions in PA starting Saturday

All in-person businesses in the entertainment industry serving the public within a building or indoor defined area, including, but not limited to, theaters, concert venues, museums, movie theaters, arcades, casinos, bowling alleys, private clubs, and all other similar entertainment, recreational or social facilities, are prohibited from operation.

It sounds like the park should be able to stay open but indoor rides might not be able to run and no indoor shows.

Family took the day and went to Hersheypark for their Christmas Candyland event. Weather was perfect; cold and overcast. Park looked beautiful with all they lights. The snow definitely added extra beauty to everything. 

The new Chocolatetown looks fantastic. Cant wait for the restaurant and ice cream parlor to open up!  I did not ride Candymonium, did not feel like doing the walk of shame. 

 

Now onto photos!

 

The new entryway is great. Love the openness and the view of the water and coaster.

Love the color of the ride. The sign is one of the best i've seen!

Wish the lights went up the tree more, but they still looked great! 

New this year was TREEville At the Boardwalk. Some tree were decorated by a certain group and if you took a photo in front of them, you got a price. And the price was...... HERSHEY CANDY 🙀🙀

They had the 'welcome' sign at the end of the treevillage. 🤦‍♂️

Grabfries are a gods gift from heaven.

From Fahrenheit all the way back towards the whip, they had the 12 days of Christmas. Unfortunately, this is the only photo that came out half decent.

We did ride the train, but we did it before the sun had fully set, so we didnt get to see the lights in their awe.

Triple tower looks good in christmas colors!

So the area down by the water was absolutely beautiful. The trees were all full of lights.

Fresh giant donut? YES PLEASE!!

Lastly, we made our way over to Chocolate World to end the night. New entry way looks nice at night!

This house of candy was absolutely incredible! I can not imagine spending numerous work days building this.

Love the kit-kat flooring. Really brighten ups the house!

This was so cool to see. Great job by the people that built it!

 

All in all, it was a great day at the park. The new entrance was great. Hershey really made a great investment with that. Hopefully I can come back and ride Candymonium.
