Ten Great Theme Parks and How to Save

Hershey Park

Beyond chocolate, candy bars, roller coasters, and other rides, Hershey Park (in Hershey, Pennsylvania) has added two new water attractions, the Shore and the Intercoastal waterway, to its already popular Boardwalk. Now, you can enjoy a day of riding roller coasters while also getting your feet wet.

Tickets to the park start at $52 for one-day admission for adults and $31 for kids, but you can buy a flex-pass (two any-day admissions during the season) for $70 for adults and $52 for kids. You can also get in free for a few hours on the evening before you're scheduled to visit the park, as long as you purchase your ticket at least two-and-a-half hours prior to the park closing. Just present your ticket after 7:30 p.m. (on the days the park closes at 11:00 p.m.), and enjoy all the rides and shows for free. This is also a great way to plan your itinerary for the next day. There are additional ways to save through the Hershey Park website.
