I'm really bummed out to see this...

Living in Allentown the Hershey/Dutch combo pass has worked out to be a great value the past 3 years we've had them. Hope we can still renew for 2011 at least.

i always think that Hershey has enough to offer for kids that Dutch Wonderland is just a nice little place but never great I mean the Hershey brand itself draws little kids, teens, and adults. It's a nice place don't get me wrong but maybe palace entertainment wil focus on making a bigger draw away from hershey so that more people come there for their little kids. I kinda, and there is nothing wrong with this at all, think hershey was always focused on trying to draw the whole croud requiring more money and for them to do the whole putting in new ride thing but neglected to put alot of new into Dutch Wonderland. Plus Hershey has the Dutch thing going for them at the entry to the park hahahahahaha

Interesting... according to Hershey's website, "gold" season passes and combo passes will be honored at Dutch Wonderland through the 2011 season. The gold pass is a season pass for both parks and provides all season pass holder percs. I was wondering how that would be handled, because they were advertising, and I assume selling, the gold pass for 2011 since August.

I would imagine that they have worked out an amount that HERCO will reimburse Palace everytime one is presented at the gate. It wouldn't surprise me if it was below a discounted group rate.
