Guests planning to visit Hersheypark or The Hotel Hershey can now tour the locations prior to their trips, thanks to an online tour recently created by Google Maps. Hersheypark is one of the first theme parks to be mapped in the United States.
The interactive tour, part of Street View on Google Maps, shows guests all the attractions and pathways at both properties.
The project began in late June, when a 250-pound tricycle equipped with a large telescopic camera traveled around the Park and the Hotel. The camera contained circular filming lenses, allowing it to capture 360-degree images of outdoor pathways. It took about five hours to complete the filming of Hersheypark and another three hours to finish the filming at The Hotel Hershey.
