Hersheypark was opened on April 24, 1907, and originally intended to be a pleasant retreat for Milton Hershey’s employees to picnic and boat. Today there are a vast number of rides for all ages, ranging from: Miniatures (Less than 36”), Kisses (36” to 42”), Reese’s (42” to 48”), Hershey’s (48” to 54”) Twizzlers (54” to 60”) and Jolly Rancher (More than 60”); including water attractions in The Boardwalk. The perfect place to make new memories this summer.
