Hersheypark is quite an attraction for the tourists. Lots of rides and amusements.....like roller coasters. The Lightening Racer was the newest one. Now there's one for 2002 called the Roller Soaker that involves the traditional roller coaster but with a twist in that you can shoot water from your car....I'll have to try it out and get back to you.
Food and drinks are very expensive in the park. For example $2.50 for a soda,$3.25 for a bottle of water and a slice of pizza was close to $3.00. So plan in advance and pack a cooler of drinks and food. We left the coolers in the car and I took a walk back to the car and brought drinks and snacks in when the kids got thirsty and hungry. I carried a few extras in a water proof gym back, to avoid the hike back to the car.If you want you can bring the coolers into the park and either lug them around or rent a locker to hold them.
