The "Sweetest Place on Earth" may have had an abbreviated summer season with COVID restrictions delaying the opening this year, but Hersheypark is making up for it with expanded seasonal events and all of sweet fun we know and love gearing up for the fall and winter seasons!  This year, Hersheypark debuted it's 15th coaster, Candymonium, and the new Chocolatetown entrance to the park which you can also see during seasonal events if you missed them this summer!

Hersheypark In The Dark

Halloween is synonymous with candy so what better place to spend this holiday than in Hershey, PA?  Hersheypark will be open weekends from October 2nd - November 1 for guests to enjoy the fall festivities.  Both kids and adults alike will delight in family-friendly rides, shows, games, and of course, the coasters!  Don't forget to dress in costume and get your kids 12 and under ready for chocolate overload when you walk through the trick-or-treat trail.  One of my favorite things to do during the fall is to also visit Zoo America where the animals get into the Halloween spirit as well - and admission is included with your Hersheypark In the Dark ticket!

Tickets for Hersheypark In The Dark are on sale for $44.95 (ages 9-61), $36.95 (3-8 and 62 and older), and free for 2 and younger.  Like in the summer, guests will need to reserve their entry date due to capacity restrictions in place with COVID protocols so don't delay in planning your day!  This is also a great time to think about purchasing season passes for 2021.  There are big savings on 2021 season passes now and you can add on unlimited visits for the 2020 seasonal events for only $65 more!  Learn more about season passes here.  

Hersheypark Christmas Candylane

Following the fall events, Hershey, PA quickly transitions into a winter wonderland!  On select dates from November 13 - January 3, guests to Hersheypark will be able to explore several fun themed events.  Christmas Candylane is a chance for guests to visit Hersheypark and enjoy rides, shows, and attractions - all with a seasonal twist.  Trust me when I tell you to check out the wide array of hot chocolates - they won't disappoint!!! Christmas Candylane tickets are on sale for an early discounted rate of $31.95 for guests 3 and older with children 2 and under having free entry.  

Looking for more winter fun with your family in Hershey?  You can add on a ticket to the drive-thru Hershey Sweet Lights exhibit.  With nearly 600 lighted displays, it will dazzle both young and old.  Tickets will be available for this late September.  

Check out my visit to Hersheypark's Christmas Candylane last year for tips to make the most of your visit!


This is also a great time of year to make it Hershey getaway by visiting the Official Resorts of Hersheypark.  You may not have realized it, but there are several options when visiting the area which offer great benefits to Hersheypark guests including guaranteed admission reservations and free parking at the park!  Learn more about planning your Hershey, PA visit here.

Will you be visiting the Sweetest Place on Earth this holiday season?  I can't wait to see the families getting their "Hersheypark Happy" on this year.  If you're still not feeling ready to visit a theme park yet, you can also check out these Hershey at Home activities I shared during the closure including virtual coaster rides, coloring pages, and even a recipe for Reese's Peanut Butter Cup Brownies!
