Nothing is sweeter than a summer day at Hersheypark! The sounds, the aroma, the dazzling lights as you walk through the park…it’s what summer dreams are made of. My family loves visiting the park and one of the things we love most is trying the new attractions, sweets and eats. I’m giving you the scoop on the new Jolly Rancher themed additions to the park!
Jolly Ranchers are so darn tasty! What a fun candy to inspire new attractions and sweets! Here is the Jolly Rancher breakdown from Hersheypark!
New Jolly Rancher Attractions
Jolly Rancher Remix reimagined boomerang roller coaster takes guests on a flavor ride by sending them and their senses forward and back on the same flavorful track. Riders of Hershey’s height category (48”) and above will blast through the flavor tunnel, invert six times in 90 seconds and jam to sweet tunes. Each ride is different with five randomized flavor rides like Watermelon or Green Apple, complete with different music, lights and scents for an only-in-Hershey sensory experience. This one is for the thrill seekers. My teens though this was so cool and the different variations of rides keep you guessing. Fun loops, fog, lights and music make this ride a blast for all coaster loving kids and parents.
Mix’d Flavored By Jolly Rancher all-new family ride is located just steps away from Jolly Rancher Remix in the heart of Hersheypark near Storm Runner coaster. Riders of Reese’s height category (42”) and above sit in one of the four arms and spin 360 degrees. The ride then shifts into gear and mixes in lifts, drops and never-before-seen views while dodging the other riders. This one is a great family ride! It’s not too intense, but still delivers some fun tummy losing feelings as you swing up and down in the air. My tweens and teens loved this one and got right back in line to ride again.
Jolly Rancher Treats
This summer, guests can enjoy new Jolly Rancher flavored items across Hersheypark. The Chocolatier Restaurant, Bar + Patio serves up a delicious Jolly Rancher Watermelon Cocktail, Twizzlers Frozen Daiquiri and Jolly Rancher Sorbet Sundae to the Fun to Table menu. Milton’s Ice Cream Parlor features a sundae with Jolly Rancher Watermelon and Jolly Rancher Blue Raspberry Sorbets. My absolute favorite is the The Frozen Spoon food truck, with the Jolly Rancher Grape Sorbet, Jolly Rancher Green Apple Sorbet, Jolly Rancher Cherry Sorbet and Jolly Rancher Blue Raspberry Sorbet. You can get this in a flight to try all flavors and it is the sweetest thing on earth! So creamy, tart and ultra refreshing! A must have at the park this summer.
Summer Fun at Hershey
Did you know Summer tickets include three parks in one with thrilling coasters and family rides, a water park and a zoo? Yes! Hersheypark offers a wide range of family-friendly rides like the Ferris Wheel, which turns 25 this year, more than 20 kiddie rides interspersed throughout the Park, and 15 coasters and other thrill attractions. You also get to enjoy The Boardwalk Water park and ZooAmerica, a North American Wildlife Park to see dozens of animals native to North America, from black bears to river otters and Canada lynx. So much family fun to be had!
Book a Summer Getaway!
Make the most out of your getaway and stay at the family friendly lodging. My personal favorite is the Hershey Lodge. Delicious food, fun indoor waterpark for kids and all kinds of family amenities on site. The Hershey Lodge is a perfect spot for families. Fire & Grain is a must eat restaurant in the lodge. My kids love exploring here and it is so family friendly. For details, visit Hersheypark.com/official-resorts/packages.
