Hershey Park CrowdsHersheypark: Wondering what crowd levels to expect for a mid-July trip to Hershey Park.
From Andrew CarrieriHey everyone!

My family and I will probably be going to Hershey Park on July 16 and 17. I am curious as to how severe the crowds will be and how long (on average) the queue waits will be, assuming decent weather, on these days. I'm sure it will be crowded, but will it be "Disney-crowded" with ninety minute waits on most rides (I am most interested in the coasters)?
If anyone can help with this question, it would be greatly appreciated.

From Betty RohrerSaturdays will be crowded but weekdays could also be because of daycamps field trips. would use single rider if avaible. coasters will have longer linesbut should be doable. i maybe making the same trip but will have my young grandsons who do not make coaster heights.

From Carrie HoodI'd suggest avoiding the typical "Four day weekend" type of days. Friday-Monday will be very busy, mid-week should be less crowds. However it is summer so no matter what your looking at fairly heavy crowds.

As Betty said, during the week you'll probably encounter a lot of summer camps and field-trips but on the upside those groups tend to leave early.
From Randy StellarI was just there last Thursday. Hershey is crowded every day. If the weather is nice, I would not expect to get on every single coaster in one day. It's a great park. But it will be crowded.
