Hersheypark is actually 4 big attractions located all in one huge park. With paid admission to Hersheypark you get into Zoo America, Chocolate World, The Boardwalk water park, and of course, Hersheypark. It sounds really awesome!
The park features 11 roller coasters, seven of which are rated "aggressive thrill ride"; 14 water rides, many of which are rated "high thrill ride"; 29 family rides, 17 of which have no height requirement if accompanied by an adult; and 27 kiddie rides, most with no height requirement.
The Boardwalk at Hersheypark offers a full waterpark experience with nine rides and one of the world's largest water-play structures. Be sure to bring your suit.
Zoo America has over 200 animals from 756 species and is free with park admission. Chocolate World offers tours of how chocolate is made all the way from the rain forests where the cacao beans grow to the bar you can sample at the end.
I have always lived on the West Coast and so have never experienced an amusement park this big. I think I could lose my kids here, which I just might want to so that I could do all of the cool things.
Special thanks to Annemarie for the photos.
