At least it’s about a ride that matters and not something like speaker volume at Darien Lake.

Planning to visit Hershey for the first time on a Friday this July. Have one day, but have the whole day. Is the Flash Pass Unlimited a must? Was thinking normal Flash Pass could probably suffice since will probably only want to re-ride a few, but it’s a fairly comparable price point at $75 vs. $90. Assuming, I really only care about the coasters, is Flash Pass worth it? I’m assuming Friday crowds are similar to Saturday / Sunday.

Any must eat places either in or outside the park?

use preview night on Thurs. . .you can knock out quite a few of the big coasters with minimal crowds.

Thanks! Didn’t know about that. Do you have to pay for parking on both Thursday and Friday in that case or does it work for both days?

I *believe* your parking fee for Preview Night is good for the next day - you just keep the ticket and show them.

but not sure, as we've always stayed on property, or I visited with a group that took us by bus.

so maybe someone whos done it recently can clarify for sure.

EDIT: from the website:

Ticketing
What is the Preview Plan?

When you purchase a regular full-day admission ticket, you can enter the night before your big day for 2 1/2 hours prior to Park closing. Just show your ticket at the Front Gate and you can start enjoying the fun early! Purchase parking the evening you are using the Preview Plan and keep the parking stub, along with your admission tickets, to use the following day.

Nice info. I'm hoping to take advantage of the preview night in early August when I visit.

the preview night really makes a huge difference. you can get a LOT done in those 2 1/2 hours.

on a Thursday? place should be dead in the evening, as the next day is a work day.

Agreed, the preview night is totally worth doing as the park clears out around 8pm. I was able to get 3-4 rides each on skyrush, storm runner and Fahrenheit during the preview night.
