The response I got:
Hello Gary! This is a great idea worth looking into! I will save your email and develop the idea this fall as we plan for 2008! Hopefully something can work out because I think this is a great idea! Stay tuned and thanks for your interest in Hersheypark!

An all-nighter at HP would be wild. Think of all the chocolate we could eat to help stay awake. :)

Sounds like a pretty standard reply to me, especially since the "idea" is not mentioned specifically in the reply. Take out the name and the year and this email to could be sent to anyone writing the park with a suggestion.
I still say, this sounds like a real response from a real human.
I think it would be pretty hard to talk them into an all-night event. There are lots of neighbors to be considerate of (that would rule-out most of the major coasters) and the labor costs would be pretty high.
But what the hell do I know?
I've been wondering that for a while too, lol ;)

I was there for the Katrina benefit. It was a great night but they only pulled in about three-thousand people. It was quite a bargain at $14 though and I seem to remember all the major rides being open. They were only open for about five or six hours if I remember correctly.
I think the problem with low attendance for that event was it was very sudden without much notice (I believe the park was supposed to be closed that day) and that it was on a Friday. If they gave more notice and had it on a weekend or a day most people had the day off I think it would do well judging by how crowded Springtime In the Park got in 2006 with the reduced $19.99 admission and almost the whole park open.
