This website is about the place in which the name says, Hersheypark. Here, you will find information on this sweet and charming theme park located in the rolling hills of central Pennsylvania in the town of Hershey, where everything is centered around the world's greatest sweet treat.... chocolate!

And of course, Hersheypark features the famous treat too! Hershey's chocolate can be found in the gift and souvenir shops,   the aroma of chocolate drifts through the air coming from the nearby chocolate factory while roller coasters take their riders aboard for a screaming adventure. Where else can you view America's sweetest town through windows shaped like world famous Hershey's Kisses?

Hersheypark Crazy features information on Hersheypark, plus lots of photos throughout the site. You can also ready about the history of this park and follow the timeline from the beginning as a mini picnic and train/trolley park to one of America's top rated theme parks. And meet up with other enthusiasts in the Hersheypark Crazy forums. The park has won several awards including the Applause Award, the amusement industry's most prestigious honor.

Enjoy your visit to America's sweetest theme park!

 ANNOUNCEMENTS AND SPECIAL FEATURES:

 

   
THE HERSHEYPARK GIANT WHEEL: 1973-2004

A lot of you may already know that the GIANT Wheel, an Intamin double wheel, has been removed for 2005, as part of the transformation of Carrousel Circle to Founder's Circle in honor of M.S. Hershey.

The GIANT Wheel was constructed in 1972 and opened to the public in 1973 as part of a massive plan to transform the park into Hersheypark, the major theme park we know of today. Click the logo to the left to learn more.
