Picture this: snow falling, beautiful ride to a gorgeous hotel encrusted in a PA mountain and … an awesome amusement park to color this picture and make our stay one of the most fun vacations we’ve ever had!
I’m talking about our trip to Hershey a few weeks ago! The snow falling was the icing on the cake to make our trip to Hershey Park and the Candy Lane so perfect!
Here are a few of the reasons why you should visit Hershey Park during the Holiday Season and why it is a must visit spot if you have a teen:
When I arrived, I was under the impression Candy Lane was an area of the park, an attraction! No, Candy Lane was the whole park, transformed into the beautiful holiday version of a place we love so much!
Festive Lights and Entertainment
You will see more than 4 million lights deck the halls of Hersheypark® in celebration of the season! Get in the holiday spirit with a choreographed light show, festive live entertainment, and so much more!
More than 50 of your favorite rides, including 6 coasters! When we went it was snowing, so we didn’t get to enjoy too many of the rides, but we hope to be back soon to enjoy them! Plus, for the first time ever during Hersheypark® Christmas Candylane®, enjoy Hershey Triple Tower™ and SidewinderSM.
We took a train ride and enjoyed seeing the lights around the park!
Santa and The Reindeer
Did you know Santa and all 9 of his reindeer make a special stop at Hersheypark Christmas Candylane every year? Visit Santa then stop by the reindeer stables to get an up-close look at your favorite reindeer, including Rudolph!
Santa told me, that there is no age for a Santa picture sooooo
Trust me, he was the nicest Santa ever…..
We’ve both been good!
Then we went to see Rudolf and the Reindeer!
Here are also a few things my son loved and I know every teen would love about Hershey Park in the winter:
Hot Cocoa Everywhere
Every five steps there was a vendor of hot cocoa and winter treats! My son had a blast sipping through them! It was the perfect drink on a cold snowy night!
Even though my son couldn’t enjoy all of the rides due to snow, he loved seeing them at night and in the winter! It was the perfect excuse for him to ask us to come back! We really had fun together on the train!
Think only little ones like Reindeer? Think twice! So many older kids were enjoying the stable, taking selfies and snapping shots with the cute Santa’s helpers.
My son stopped at a few gift stores and picked up some gifts for his stocking! It was the first year he was able to pick his own gifts! Of course we have more surprises in store!
We’re definitely going to be back this winter!! I promised him we would!
