Spring is here and to many that means warmer weather, blooming flowers, picnics in the park… but to me, it means Hersheypark Amusement Park is gearing up to open in The Sweetest Place on Earth! The Springtime In The Park event marks Hersheypark‘s 115th Season! Springtime In The Park will occur on April 2-4, 10-11, 17-18, and 24-25, 2021. Hours are from 11:00 AM to 7 PM.

Current 2021 Season Pass Holders can enjoy unlimited visits to Springtime In The Park as part of their year-long perks. To manage attendance, every guest with tickets or group tickets is required to make a Park reservation for each day of their visit. Tickets may be purchased in advance online at Hersheypark.com.
New for 2021
Hersheypark will debut two new culinary experiences for 2021, over in the new Hershey’s Chocolatetown! Inspired by the vision of chocolate entrepreneur and founder, Milton S. Hershey, Milton’s Ice Cream Parlor and The Sweeterie Confectionery Kitchen will be open for Springtime In The Park Opening Day! The Chocolatier Restaurant, Bar + Patio will open on Memorial Day Weekend.
Milton’s Ice Cream Parlor is inspired by Mr. Hershey‘s early ventures in ice cream! Personal Ice Creamologists will create exclusive, custom creations from more than a dozen 100% local dairy house-made ice cream flavors. Just to name a few, these oh-so-delicious flavors include Candymonium (named after the coaster!), Reese’s Peanut Butter, Toasted Marshmallow, and Malted Memories (created using a Spartan Ice Cream recipe developed by Milton Hershey School students).
Sweet treats like the King Size Sundae, ice cream sandwiches, milkshakes, and ice cream floats, aren’t the only offerings available! Guests can find savory options as well such as the Signature Grilled Cheese, Chicken N Waffles, or Hersheypark souvenir buckets filled with potato chips, fries, or chicken bites.
The Sweeterie Confectionary Kitchen features a collection of mouth-watering, bites of indulgence, such as chocolate-dipped treats, decadent desserts, signature hand-crafted fudge, and so much more. There are Hersheypark-themed treats as well, inspired by the Comet coaster, the Kissing Tower, and the new Chocolatetown!
Don’t forget though, with your one-price admission ticket, you’ll not only receive access to a number of the Park’s rides and attractions, and live entertainment shows, but also entrance to ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park!
