Scare

Dark Nights

Dark Nights frightfully immersive haunt experience spreads its shadows over the Hersheypark® landscape every evening during Hersheypark Halloween seasonal event, unearthing three scare zones and four spine-tingling haunted houses. Midways transform from enchanting to unnerving and once-familiar spaces mutate into chilling explorations of the unknown. The only thing more terrifying than the dark, is what lurks within it.
