    I use to go to Hershey Park every year when I was a kid, however I have not been in the last 15 yrs. WELL! I went today Saturday June 26 2021, and I was absolutely disgusted with the amount of people in this park. To a point you could not walk without bumping someone. I was with my 3 yr old and even the kiddie rides had an average of 35 min wait time. Also the traffic just to get in to park your car takes about an hour. So pack some car snacks. Next time we go will be in the middle of the week and see if things are better.

    Saturday in April. Overcast and fairly chilly. Most rides were between 30mins to 90 mins wait. Even the “kiddie” rides.
