Well that’s it. Wait, there’s more! Every April, Hershey set aside a day for a semi-private event to offer a Special Military Offer. This year the event is scheduled for 27 April and the park will be closed to the general public. The offer includes $25 ticket prices, free parking, special rates for The Hotel Hershey and Hershey Lodge on the 27th plus an additional 10% off (20% total) the Camping Resort for a couple days prior to the park event day. If you’ve in the area and looking for a semi-exclusive time to visit the park with not too much of a crowd factor, then I suggest you consider visiting on the 27th, if possible.
