Hersheypark amusement park in Hershey, Pa., celebrates a century of coaster riding this summer. Exactly 100 years ago today, on June 16, 1923, the first roller coaster known as The Wild Cat opened at Hersheypark.
A century later, Hersheypark is home to an iconic lineup of 15 coasters - the most in the Northeast - packed with heart-pounding climbs, epic drops, and iconic thrills guests can only find in The Sweetest Place On Earth.
New for 2023 is Wildcat’s Revenge, the first hybrid coaster at Hersheypark. It reclaims the iconic name and adds a new steel track with unique elements to the wooden framework for a one-of-a-kind thrilling ride experience in Pennsylvania.
SPECIAL TICKET OFFER FOR COASTER FANS: In celebration of 100 years of coasters, Hersheypark offers two all-age tickets for $100 when purchased on Hersheypark.com through June 21.
The tickets are valid through September 10, 2023, and include three parks in one with more than 70 rides, The Boardwalk water park (open daily through September 4) and ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park.
