Long wait times?

Postby Coasters 4 ever » Tue Apr 05, 2005 1:21 pm

Has anyone ever had a problem with the wait times at Hersheypark or Dorney Park? Were they long(45-60min), short(0-20min), or in the middle(20-45min)?

I'm from SoCal, feel bad for me!

I was at Dorney in July a couple of years ago and lines were very short, if there were any. Most people at the park that day were at the waterpark.

Hersheypark can get busy, especially if there's a concert or game at the nearby Giant Center.

Hit them early and you shouldn't have a problem.

I'm going during Springtime in the Park. Has anyone been there during this time in the past?

I've been to Springtime in the Park last year. The wait times were moderate to short on the day before Easter, but empty on Easter Sunday (it was also rainy)

I went to Hersheypark on a Saturday and it was crowded! Wildcat had an hour wait. It was wall to wall people!

Hersheypark does get crowded at peak times of the year, but it is usually pretty managable. Like everyone else always preaches (because it's true), get there early.

A good plan of attack is to get Comet, Storm Runner and Great Bear out of the way first. Sooperdooper, Lightning Racer, Wildcat, and Trailblazer are usually pretty managable anytime during the day. However, Trailblazer can get a little interesting if they run one car.

Which came first the turtle or the donkey?
