What’s New at Hersheypark for Summer 2019 + Win 8 tickets!

Hersheypark is one of my family’s favorite summer destinations! As the start of summer is approaching with Memorial Day Weekend, Hersheypark is getting ready for their new attraction, Reese’s Cupfusion, to open May 25th, 2019! Here’s what else is new for summer 2019 in Hersheypark. Plus, I’ve got a giveaway where you can win 8 1-day Hersheypark tickets, so your family can enjoy all the Hershey awesomeness this summer!

I am part of Hershey’s Sweetest Families. All opinions on my addiction to chocolate are my own.

What’s New at Hersheypark in Summer 2019

Hershey, PA feels like a destination in itself with Chocolate World, Hersheypark, the Hershey Story Museum, Hershey Gardens, all of the Hershey Hotels, and spas. School’s almost out for the summer, so we’re making our plans to visit the Sweetest Place on Earth. 

New Hershey Cupfusion Ride at Hersheypark

Reese’s Cupfusion

First up is Reese’s Cupfusion, an interactive ride for riders 48″ and taller. Become an agent, protect the factory, and ensure the world is never deprived of Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups on this all-new interactive gaming ride which features the most targets in the world and six ways to play! 

As an agent trainee, riders are given the latest technology to track their scores, receive a free ride photo, and earn their place on the Reese’s Hall Of Fame. This one is for all you gamers out there, and I can’t wait to ride!

Hershey’s Unwrapped at Hershey’s Chocolate World

Hershey’s Chocolate World is at least a half-day visit for us. It’s right next to the park, and we love riding on Hershey’s Chocolate Tour, making our own chocolate bars, and of course, eating all the delicious snacks!

Hershey’s Unwrapped replaced the Chocolate Tasting Experience and opened May 20, 2019. It’s a fun show where the audience gets to participate, the actors will keep you laughing,  plus you get chocolate! Sounds like my kind of place.

Tickets for the Hershey’s Unwrapped attraction are $15.95 for adults, $12.95 for kids, and children 2 and under are free.  You can purchase your tickets at Chocolate World or online.

New Food for 2019 at Hersheypark

Now you’re speaking my language. Our mission as a family is to try every new food item at Hersheypark. With new food trucks, new King Size Shakes at Simply Chocolate (we recommend the Slither and Squirm King Size Shake), and the fundae at Founder’s Way Funnel Cakes, we’re happy to have a sugar rush.

Check out this beauty with a funnel cake bowl as the base. It’s filled with chocolate peanut butter ice cream and topped with peanut butter syrup, whipped cream and Reese’s candies. Yum!!!

Boardwalk at Hersheypark

Don’t forget to beat the heat at the Boardwalk inside the park. It’s included with your admission! They have water coasters, a lazy river, water slides, and even rides and splash pads for your little ones. Don’t forget to bring your own towels!

Hersheypark Summer Ticket Giveaway

Hershey does have a great ticket offer right now  – everyone pays kids’ prices! However, you have the chance to win 8 1-day tickets to Hersheypark for this summer! Yes, 8!!! This one’s for my big families.

As a family of 7, I understand sometimes it feels like you’re an odd duck with a big family. And if you have a smaller family, good news – you can turn those tickets into a 4-pack of 2-day tickets. Or else invite some friends and be the real MVP. Complimentary tickets are good for the 2019 Hersheypark Summer Season.

Experiencing Hersheypark with family and friends is the best! If you win, I recommend staying at Hershey Lodge or Hershey Camping Resort.  *Hotel accommodations not included in this giveaway.

Hersheypark Ticket Giveaway Rules

The giveaway is open to residents of the United States age 18 and over. All entries will be verified. The giveaway will run May 24, 2019  to May 31, 2019. Winner will be notified via email and will have 48 hours to claim prize. If prize is not claimed within 48 hours, a new winner will be chosen.

I am just really excited about sharing Hershey Park with my children. I went there as a kid, and now I am local-ish again after many many years around the world. I’m excited to share a bit of my “home” with my family! Thanks for the opportunity!
