Amusement Parks: Hersheypark Offers Guests “VIP” Experiences


Hersheypark, the world-class amusement park located in Hershey, Pa., is now offering guests three new ways to make their park visits even sweeter. 

The new “Sweet Rides at Sunset” package allows ride lovers to be treated like royalty. Available for guests with a valid Hersheypark ticket, Sweet Rides at Sunset gives front-of-line access to favorite rides, excluding The Boardwalk at Hersheypark, to groups of four to eight people. These evening tours are available at 5, 5:30 and 6 p.m. through August 30. 

The price of the three-hour tour is $99 for ages 9 and older and $49 for ages 3 to 8. Guests ages 17 and younger must have a parent or legal guardian with them; the tour is not designed for children ages 2 and younger. Guests of the Sweet Rides package also receive a 15 percent discount on food, non-alcoholic beverages and retail purchases during the time of their tour. 

Guests can kick off their morning at Tudor Grill with “Breakfast at Hersheypark.” Guests are served a nutritious meal that includes assorted breads and muffins, scrambled eggs, French toast, sausage, potatoes and choice of juice, milk or hot beverages. 

The highlight of the meal is when guests meet and greet the famous Hershey’s Product Characters – the Hershey’s chocolate bar, Reese’s peanut butter cup and Hershey’s Kiss. The price for the experience is $26.45 for adults and $19.99 for children ages 3 to 8; children ages 2 and younger are free. Character breakfasts are available through August 31. 

Parties of 10 or more can add the “Sweet Celebrations” package to their Hersheypark admission. These groups enjoy a festive meal of pizza or hot dogs, chips and a customized celebration cake. In addition, each guest receives a 2009 Hersheypark souvenir cup with choice of beverage. The cup can be refilled for the remainder of the day, throughout the Park, for just $.99 plus tax. 

In addition, the Sweet Celebrations package includes reserved seating at The Great Candy Caper marine mammal show, a complimentary “buy one, get one free” voucher for a Park game, and a 15 percent retail discount for use in select shops inside the Park. Package pricing begins at $16.95 per person, and packages can be expanded and customized for an additional charge. The Sweet Celebrations package is available on any Hersheypark public operating day. 

For all three new packages, space is limited and advance reservations are required.
