Two parks in one, offering traditional looping rides and the Boardwalk's nine wet and wild amusements—like Tidal Force and Roller Soaker.
Thrill: Coastline Plunge's four slides spiral at high speeds, shoot through tunnels, and roar through rapids. Air-dry on the vertical lift Fahrenheit coaster, which has feverish flips and rages 121 feet up followed by a 97-degree drop. Take a break from the action at the on-site ZooAmerica. Hersheypark.com; $53 adults, ages 3-8, $32; 800-HERSHEY.
Chill: Hershey Lodge perks include swimming, free park shuttle, discounted tickets, and passes to the Hershey Gardens and the Hershey Story Museum. Nightly rates start at $289. A more rustic option is the Hershey Highmeadow Campground. Hersheypark.com; nightly rates for tent and RV sites starting at $41 and cabins for $90; 800-HERSHEY.
