Character for Dark Nights at Hersheypark

Dark Nights

The Dark Nights experience is back from the shadows of Hersheypark Halloween with more dates than last year. Darkness is taking over even more of the Hersheypark landscape with more menacing characters roaming our mutated Midways anxiously awaiting your return. The only thing more terrifying than the dark, is what lurks within it.
