Street View: Inside Hersheypark

In this “Street View” installment, we take a look inside of Hersheypark using Google Map’s “Street View” feature.

Hersheypark opened in Hershey, Pennsylvania in 1907 and has experienced a tremendous amount of growth and success since then.

Just outside the entrance to Hersheypark, you’ll find Hershey’s Chocolate World, where you’ll learn just about everything you ever want to learn about Hershey chocolate.

Just inside the gates is the Tudor Square area, a quaint area with plenty of shade provided by large trees. You can find your general information about the park in this area.

It’s hard to miss the park’s B&M inverted coaster, Great Bear

One of the things I like most about Hersheypark is the intertwined nature of many of the park’s attractions. Seen here are the park’s chairlift and Great Bear

In the Comet Hollow area you’ll find none other than Comet. In 2012, this area of the park will look very different when Skyrush opens.

The Boardwalk area is like a mini water park smack dab in the middle of Hersheypark. It’s a perfect place to go on a hot summer day.

Every park needs a ferris wheel!

Lightning Racer, the dueling GCI wooden coasters can be seen in the background of this shot.

Fahrenheit opened in 2008 and features a very twisted, unique layout

The Norwegian loop element is very unique.

Stormrunner’s tophat stands 150 feet tall above the rest of the park.

Seen here is Stormrunner’s heartline roll and flying snake dive.

The interactive Reese’s Xtreme Cup Challenge indoor dark ride is a great way to escape the summer heat.

Sidewinder is a standard Vekoma Boomerang model. Not much to see here, let’s move right along.

Last but not least, Sooperdooperlooper might stand in the shadows of Great Bear, but its classic charm can not be overlooked.
