Marking its 35th anniversary this year, Hersheypark’s Christmas Candylane holiday attraction will feature more than 45 rides (weather permitting), including six roller coasters: Sidewinder, Wildcat, sooperdooperLooper, Cocoa Cruiser, Wild Mouse and holiday-themed Laff Trakk. Four million sparkling lights will illuminate and excite as you make your way through Hersheypark amusement park in Hershey, Pennsylvania, in addition to the dazzling NOEL light show choreographed with holiday music. The festivities begin Friday, November 16, and is open on select dates through Tuesday, January 1, 2019.
Iconic Christmas Candylane activities will also return as Santa and all nine of his reindeer make a special stop at Hersheypark Christmas Candylane. Santa is available during all operating hours and families can stop by the reindeer stables to get an up-close look at their favorite reindeer live, including Rudolph. In addition to roaming carolers, an engaging holiday show is again offered in the heated Music Box Theater to delight families. “Up on the Rooftop” features favorite Christmas songs, wacky elves, prancing reindeer, and Santa himself. New this year is an indoor, heated photo opportunity with three of the Hershey Characters across from Santa in Kissing Tower Hill themed area. And s’mores, iconic hot chocolate, and a new cookies decorating kit will be offered for visitors to indulge in a taste of the holidays.
