Where can you go to indulge in world famous chocolate and ride insane roller coasters in one location? The answer is only one place, Hershey Park! Conveniently located at the “Sweetest Place on Earth,” Hershey, Pennsylvania. (Here are the directions)
Now if you are or were a member of the military or National Guard, then you’re in luck because your visit to Hershey Park can now be a little cheaper thanks to a military discount honored by Hershey.
Who is Eligible for this Military Discount?
This Hershey Park military discount is available during the regular summer operating schedule and can be applied to regular, junior, and senior one-day tickets. This discount is available to active duty military, reserves, retired military personnel, and members of the National Guard and all their dependents.
Where to Buy Tickets
These military discounted Hershey Park tickets can be bought from two locations. You can buy the tickets at the ticket office by showing your military ID. The person at the ticket office will then make a phone call to approve your ticket, which only takes about 15 seconds. And then that’s it! You get a [highlight color="eg. yellow, black"]$14 discount[/highlight]. You can also buy them from MWR facilities and ticket offices on military bases. (Based on the reduced ticket prices that could be found at the Aberdeen Proving Ground MWR, MD, the military discount tickets cost [highlight color="eg. yellow, black"]$44.50[/highlight] for adults and [highlight color="eg. yellow, black"]$33.50[/highlight] for children 3-8 years old.) This is a pretty good discount as compared to the general admission gate price of $56.95 for adults and $35.95 for children.
Now if you are unable to obtain any discounted tickets from your base, then all you need to do is send an email to email@example.com, with you complete mailing information and the discounted tickets will be sent to your household.
You can also show your military ID at the Guest Services or Tram Circle Group Sales Building and receive your discounted tickets there in person. These two locations will be located right outside the main entrance of the park.
