It's better that no one mentioned it. I haven't seen a line that long since it opened. There was a boy scout camping weekend at the campground and they took over the park. I heard someone saying they waited 30 mins for dippin dots.
When the season passes went on sale this discount appeared. From the wording of the 2019 season pass benefits infers that the coupon book has been discounted. This deal is better than the two 20 dollars off regular admission that came with 2018 booklet.
The holloween discount is even a better as a percentage of the ticket price.
I’m cautiously optimistic that Hershey is going to have fewer but more significant discounts 2019 pass holders.
The new pass holder discount from August15th to September 2018
The new pass holder discount for Halloween 2018

Today was probably the most crowded I have ever seen the park. I knew it was going to be crowded based on wait times on the app the last Saturday and the Saturday before that but wanted to get 1 trip in before Hersheypark in the Dark begins.
Walking around difficult where food lines were going to the walkways. Comet, Great Bear, sooperdooperlooper, Laff Trakk all had lines that were overflowing onto the walkways. Fahrenheit, Lightning Racer, Wildcat and Wild Mouse had almost full queues. The most surprising wait times on the app were Lightning Racer and Trailblazer and 75 minutes although I don't think that was accurate. When I rode Lightning Racer later it was a 45 minute wait on the app and took just over 15 minutes. Crowds were more reasonable after 8 although some rides like Fahrenheit and Laff Trakk had really bad lines even later in the day. Coal Cracker was closed all day.
The app had a 45 minute posted wait time for Great Bear. It was at least double that.
sooperdooperlooper's line was also out of the queue.
WOW! I have never seen lines like that at this park, accept for the Chick Fil A in the park.
Than again I only go to this park every two years or so.
