Hersheypark has been given the green light by the state of Pennsylvania to open, and quickly announced plans to welcome back visitors.  The park will open for season pass holders on July 1st and 2nd, then open to the public on July 3rd.

As with other large attractions, Hersheypark has also unveiled a set of substantial changes that will be in place in order to follow regulates by the CDC and state officials.  These include touchless temperature screenings upon entering the park, the requirement of face masks to be work by guests and employees, and a reservation system that will be used to monitor attendance levels.

The Boardwalk, which is Hersheypark's water park area, will also be opening alongside the theme park.  Other attractions associated with the Hershey Resort, such as Chocolate World, are already operating with restrictions in place.

The park has also made it clear that they plan to open Candymonium, their new B&M hyper coaster, on July 3rd as well.  The ride is the most thrilling addition to the park's new Chocolatetown expansion, which is a massive transformation of the park's entrance area.
