I'm working on planning a trip for my husband and I to Hershey Park on a Saturday in September. I'm tossed between September 1st and September 15th. September 1st is Labor Day weekend - will the park be swamped with tons of people? September 15th is mid-September - will the water rides be closed by then? My husband is definitely a water park kinda guy, and I might not be able to do coasters so the water rides may be my only option.
Thank you in advance for your pearls of wisdom!
Are you pregnant? Can't ride the coasters? You'll be missing out on some good coasters if you can't ride, but there should be plenty for you to do.
Labor Day weekend would have more shows available for you and your man to watch then any weekend after. Also my experience with the park is that Sundays in September are usually pretty light crowds. Of course it depends on what event they are having, and or company picnics.
Overall anytime in those dates listed should make for a pretty decent visit.
Yup, I'm heading down the Mommy-Trail. My husband's not into coasters; I went on an HP trip with my coaster-happy girl friends earlier this summer, so I was able to get in my Hershey Park coaster joys then.
But crazy enough, these same girls had such a blast that they're ravenous for another HP trip this season! They'll have to do some laps on Lightning Racer for me :).
My, you could make a ton of money by compiling a dating service on here! Everyone wants a coaster happy girlfriend!
Just don't forget to take your shoes off first!
If you buy your tickets the night before (for full day on the next day), you get free preview admission that evening for about 3 hours. You must buy your tickets at Hersheypark OR Chocolate World do get this, and I felt it was worth it, since you never know what the weather will be like on your full day....our first full day was shortened by hurricane remnants that turned into 12 hours of constant rain.
