Question & Answer

What is Hershey’s Chocolatetown?
Opening in Summer 2020, Hershey’s Chocolatetown is a new region at Hersheypark where guests can eat, play, shop, and gather year-round - with everything from a new arrival experience and coaster to more than 5 dining options and retail.
Will construction impact Hersheypark in 2019?
Hersheypark will be open and fully operational during 2019! 

This year, we look forward to opening Reese’s Cupfusion, our all-new interactive gaming ride that merges the world’s love of chocolate and peanut butter. 
What will change in 2019?
Construction in the front gate area of the Park will mean a new temporary path for guests to enter in 2019 and guests may notice some preparations around our complex until we open Hershey’s Chocolatetown in Summer 2020.
Several buildings inside and outside the front gate area will be removed for the construction of Hershey’s Chocolatetown. We will be relocating the front gate, Tram Circle, Ticketing Services building, Season Pass Services, Guest Services location, character measurement circle, and the restrooms to a temporary location for the 2019 season.
Where can I redeem my 2019 Season Pass?
Please visit Season Pass Services, located in the Tram Circle, or any Guest Services location inside the Park to redeem your pass. When the Park is open you are able to enter with your one-time voucher you received with your purchase confirmation email.
Parking options are listed here.
Hours are listed here.
Where will the new Hershey’s Chocolatetown entrance be located?
The beginning of the new arrival experience will be conveniently located closer than ever to the front gate of Hersheypark and main entrance of Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction! Our front gate will move forward and the development will expand into the area formerly occupied by the Hershey Swimming Pool. The new entrance will allow guests to get to the fun faster with enhanced technology and designated lines for Season Pass Holders and Guests of The Official Resorts.
What about Hershey’s Chocolate World?
A key component of Hershey’s Chocolatetown is the creation of a seamless passageway for guests to the destination between Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction, owned by The Hershey Company, and our new Hershey’s Chocolatetown development. We’re excited about creating a year-round destination for chocolate lovers seeking fun and unique experiences in Hershey. 
Will this be open year-round? Do I need a ticket to Hersheypark?
Several aspects of Hershey’s Chocolatetown can be enjoyed year-round without a ticket to Hersheypark, such as the full-service themed restaurant, ice cream parlor, confectionery, and retail location. The remaining elements of Hershey’s Chocolatetown inside the new front gate will be included in the Hersheypark admission price.
Will there be dedicated entry  in Hershey’s Chocolatetown for Season Pass Holders?
Yes, there will be dedicated lanes for Season Pass Holders and another for guests of The Official Resorts of Hersheypark when the new front gate experience opens in 2020.
