Hersheypark Announces New Family Rides for 2014

Hersheypark has announced the addition of three new family rides and several new dining options for the park's 2014 season.  This past season the park expanded their Boardwalk water park with a new sprayground and several water slides, and the year before that saw the massive introduction of SkyRush.

The biggest of the three new rides is a family roller coaster, the park's 12th in total.  The ride features an oval shape and is meant for the whole family, including smaller guests.  It will be located in Music Box Way, near the park's Fender Benders.

The two other rides will be added in Comet Hollow, and will be a set of Tea Cups and also a Happy Swings.  From the photos and descriptions, all three new rides appear to be from Zamperla.

The park will also add a Chickie's & Pete's, known for their crabfries, and a frozen yogurt stand.  A Chickie's and Pete's opened at Dorney Park this past year and found much success, so it is great to see the brand expanding into more amusement parks.
