Hersheypark opens for Springtime in the Park 2021
Hersheypark opened its gates to visitors today for the start of the park’s 115th season.
Springtime in the Park season has begun, with several COVID-19 safety precautions still in place.
The spring season opening takes place over four weekends through the end of April with over 40 rides open at the park.
The roller coaster sooperdooperLooper, which was closed last year, is open again, weather permitting.
The ride did not run during the 2020 season, due to the closures and travel restrictions delaying the necessary maintenance.
In a press release, Hersheypark said, “Kicking off a Hersheypark Happy year on April 2, 2021, Hersheypark will be open most weekends in April and May with daily operations from Memorial Day to Labor Day followed by September weekends,” the press release said. “The Park will also be open in October for select Hersheypark In The Dark weekends and select dates over six weeks in November and December for the Hersheypark Christmas Candylane seasonal event.”

Park admission is not required to visit the shops, which are located near the Hersheypark Supply Co. outside the park’s ticketing gates.
They will be joined by The Chocolatier Restaurant, Bar + Patio on Memorial Day Weekend. Touted as Hershey’s largest restaurant, The Chocolatier is decorated with old and new pieces from Hersheypark’s ride collection with views of attractions and a second-story patio…
