Future of Hershey Park. Nestle To Buy Hershey!!!!!

Wednesday, September 4, 2002 1:55 PM
Nestle announced on the news today that they plan to buy Hershey. What will this do to the parks name and the future coasters and attractions.

Hershy Park will remain with the Trust. It is not for sale.

Licensing deals may change characters in the park, nothing more.

Does this mean I may FINALLY get my Wonka-themed attraction.....the boat-ride in the movie put even "Big Gay Al's Big Gay Boat Ride" to shame....;)

They wont change the name of the park, or any of the coasters, or any of the rides. Just because Nestle is buying Heshey it doesn't mean the park is getting new management.

I doubt Nestle will have anything to do with the park, and I actually doubt they would take away any of the names from Hershey candies or anything like that. The only thing that will change is that on the back of the candy wrapper it will say "A product of the Nestle Candy Company" or whatever they are.

They're buying HERSHEY FOODS. The other half of the trust, HERSHEY ENTERTAINMENT AND RESORTS is not for sale. REPEAT: The park, entertainment complexes, and hotel will all remain completely unchanged.
