I am planning a last minute trip to either Dorney or Hershey park this monday of Memorial Day weekend. I was hoping someone out there would be able to advise about the crowds at either park from past experience on this day. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I would hate to dissappoint the kids with massively long lines.

Peter, I've been to Hershey on a Memorial Day weekend but not lately. I'd say it was crowded, but not overly so. I did tell Eli on his question, that Hershey opened it's Boardwalk section this weekend. That's the part where they have the wave pool, lazy river and other water attractions. With that said, the weather forecast for today and tomorrow is possible thundershowers in the afternoon, with temps in the low 80's. Monday I believe, is suppose to be better, but a little cooler, upper 70's. So, will it be crowded, that's your guess, I'd say yes, but maybe only in the Boardwalk section. Hope this helps.
