So there are a lot of rides open at Hersheypark during Springtime in the Park and you can find them listed here, but a more important list for families who have favorite rides is the one that shows what rides will NOT be open. Most of them involve water or are new for 2014. I’ve got them listed below:
Sweet Swing – new for 2014, family swing rideTHIS RIDE IS OPEN AS OF 4/18/14!
- Tea Cups – new for 2014, yep, just like Disney
Kissing Tower Hill
- Coal Cracker
- Cocoa Cruiser – new for 2014 family coaster
- Tiny Timbers – this ride has been removed to make room for the Cocoa Cruiser
- Entire area is Closed including Tidal Force (Tidal Force did have water in it today 4/12 so if hot temps continue you *might* see it open the last weekend, don’t bank on it though)
What Rides are affected if it is cold?
Well, I’m checking the weather channel for the second weekend of Springtime in the Park and it appears night temps are going to be dipping kinda low. It is worth mentioning that many of the roller coasters at Hersheypark are affected by cold temperatures and rain. (Which is also in the forecast for the weekend as of today 4/15.)
Hersheypark covers this information on their website here sort of, but it says the rides affected by temps are DARKER than the others on the pages here, but they all look the same to me. Might be my browser, dunno. But, a link I have from Halloween is still active showing the park’s information on cold sensitive rides. Try clicking here. The rides in yellow are cold sensitive.
Or you can look at my list of the big 13 cold sensitive rides taken from that Halloween listing:
- Flying Falcon
- Great Bear
- Kissing Tower
- Storm Runner
- Lightening Racer
- Wild Mouse
