On Friday, Hersheypark announced it will reopen its park to limited capacity on July 3rd. Just in time for the July 4th weekend. Season ticket holders can get in on July 1st and 2nd.
In addition to opening its doors in July, the park is debuting ‘Candymonium’, which is stated to be the longest and fastest coaster at Hersheypark.
The park will open with several health and safety guidelines in place to further mitigate the spread of COVID-19. The 121-acre park has increased cleaning and sanitization of high-touch areas across the complex.
Guests will be required to make reservations online before coming to the park. This will help the park ensure capacity limits are met. If you do not make reservations ahead of time, you will not be guaranteed admission into the park. So buy your tickets in advance.
All guests over the age of 2 will be required to wear a face covering unless when dining and on certain rides, and every guest will undergo a temperature screening upon entering the park. If someone has a temperature above 100.4 degrees, he or she will be asked to leave.
