    Gather Family And Friends For Fun At Hersheypark In The Dark

    With family-friendly events and activities, the town of Hershey is a extra sweet destination in the Fall when you three weekends of spooktacular thrills.

    The adventure begins at Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction and continues to “Treatville,” a town inside Hersheypark where Hershey’s candy treats are offered at eight locations.

    Enjoy the Hershey’s S’mores Campfire Party and experience traditional s’mores along with songs and stories; participate in Hershey’s Create Your Own Candy Bar attraction and Hershey’s Dessert Creation Studio that offer Halloween-themed ingredients and toppings for you to customize their treats.

    Afterwards, hop on a trolley for an evening tour of Hershey that includes a journey to see the lights of Hersheypark in the Dark through Hershey Trolley Works. The trolley, which departs from Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction, promises an entertaining experience and Halloween treats.

    Hersheypark in the Dark also features fall-themed cuisine and live entertainment including a group of crazy singing scientists in “Bunsen and the Burners;” a rockin’ band of misfit mummies in “Screaming Mummies;” and juggling jesters in “The Ghoul Getters.”

    Gather family and friends and join the fun at Hersheypark in the Dark that will include over 50 rides and attractions, including the Park’s 12th roller coaster, Skyrush or “Scare Rush.” This entertaining event turns your visit into a special treat as the park transforms all ride names to reflect the Halloween season.

    This includes “FEARenheit” (Farhenheit) and “Bats in the Belfry” (Kissing Tower). And, Children 12 and younger are invited to dress in costume to experience Hershey’s Trick-or-Treat Adventure, which is sure to satisfy every kid’s sweet tooth.

    Event hours are Fridays from 5 to 10 p.m., Saturdays from 2 to 10 p.m. and Sundays from 2 to 9 p.m starting in Mid October through Early November.
