Unfortunately, you won’t be able to enjoy the park’s coasters and definitely won’t be taking a trip on any water rides. However, some of the more family friendly rides, including the park’s Kissing Tower and Carousel, will be open on a pay-per-ride system.
If rides aren’t your thing they’ve set up a special holiday entertainment package, the Hersheypark Christmas Candylane. Santa and his staff will be on hand to get you in the mood, as you fill your shopping bags while roaming through the park’s holiday main street.
As always, Hershey’s Chocolate World is open for business, so you’ll be able to swing in for a tour of how all the goodies are made at the factories. The tour, more like a slow moving park ride, is free and you’ll get a free sample at the end--in case you don’t know what a Hershey bar tastes like.
Before you hit the road, drive your car through two miles of the Hershey Sweet Lights attraction. It features over 600 animated and illuminated displays that you can enjoy from the comfort of your warm car. Make sure you don’t shop too hard, since this drive-thru light show will set you back $20 per car.
