On Saturday, the Strawser family spent the day at Hersheypark during their Hersheypark in the Dark Halloween celebration. The weather was perfect – sunny, with temps getting up into the mid-60’s – and the park was beautifully decorated for the Fall season. It was a great day, having fun and making memories!
The kids had fun taking in several of the coasters – Great Bear, Super Dooper Looper, Lightning Racer, and the Wild Mouse – and they even got Brian to join them for a ride on the classic Comet.
We also rode the Kissing Tower, which is a ride I well remember from my childhood! The view from the top is amazing (that is if you’re not too busy kissing!)
Ian wanted to prove to us that he could drive, so we took a spin around the PA Turnpike on the Classic Cars (we even got a red car, which made Ian very happy!). Honestly, he didn’t do as bad as I expected. Gracie, on the other hand, was driving Ashley around and her car was in slow motion!
Other rides we enjoyed were the Dry Gulch Railroad, the Pirate Ship, and the Claw. There are so many rides at Hersheypark, and many of them were up and running for the Hersheypark in the Dark event. I was actually surprised by how many rides were open! Other than the water rides, most everything else was running!
Ashley and I are big fans of the Double Shot at the beach, so we were beyond excited to check out the advertising for the newest attraction, coming to Hersheypark for 2017 – Hershey Triple Tower. Oh. My. Gosh!
When it was starting to get dark (and cool), we headed out to the van to grab our sweatshirts and dress Ian up in Halloween garb. What better costume than the Hershey Kiss?!
Once it got nice and dark, we headed back to Treatville – a neat area that Hersheypark sets up just for kids under 12 to trick-or-treat (mostly treat!) Ian enjoyed getting all the yummy Hershey’s candies, but we all had fun seeing the cute displays they had set up.
On the way out of the park, we also stopped in at Chocolate World for a bit more trick-or-treating before heading home.
We had a great day and can’t wait to go back. It was the perfect family-friendly entertainment. There’s definitely something for everyone of every taste and age at Hersheypark. Just put on your walking shoes and be prepared for lots of walking (with hills).
