I'm hoping that the lines will get shorter as well. Anything to take lines away from the coasters is good in my opinion.

^Keep thinking that, it propably will not come true. Sure the lines might be shorter when it is hot, but there will be more people going to HP since there will be a water park.

This is a good move for the park. People will now be able to enjoy a whole day at the park. Families with teens and young kids can drop the young kids off at the water park, and the teens at the amusement park.

I was kind of expecting the Dorney effect to happen. When Wildwater Kingdom is open, the amusement side is almost dead. I know that won't happen at Hershey since it's not a full size water park but I am hoping it will happen but on a smaller scale.

Good to the last drop

Oh well, there's always '07. This will definately rake in some cash. I see this as a good thing, more people coming to the park means more need for another coaster in coming years. Make it another B&M!

Hershey Chocolate World Closing

Postby hphappy » Mon Jan 02, 2006 1:26 pm

Yes it is closing, but just for a rehab.

Today's Patriot News announced that Chocolate World will be offline beginning tomorrow for a three month rehab. You can read the entire story at

http://www.pennlive.com/news/patriotnew ... xml&coll=1

The ride was originally built by Arrow back in 1973 around the same time that Hershey Park converted over to a theme park. As the article states, the ride has been through two rehabs since then. This one is going to cost five million, so expect some changes. They mentioned that they're adding singing cows. For that price they should add some singing Donkey's just for Robb....

I like the ride the way it is but I can see why they want to update it. They said the ending will be different which I understand since it's kind of plain and boring with those pictures of people enjoying Hershey products.

Oh that's just lovely! Seriously, I'm glad Hershey takes time and money to refurbish their beloved attractions like most parks should be doing. My family is trying to figure out if we should visit BGW, Cedar Point, or Hershey Park this summer. We've been to each park atleast once and this is our choice this summer. However I'm looking at doing a senior trip to Florida, So Cal, or Wisconsin Dells :lol:

Thanks for the update. I'll have to tell my wife that, as he is always taking our nephew up there so he can ride it. He loves that thing. An update will be good. As long as it's not that god aweful late 80s one where they had a space alien or something give you the tour.

Hershey's Chocolate Tour Down

Postby Krazykral10 » Wed Jan 25, 2006 9:56 am

As of January 5, 2006 Hershey closed the Chocolate Tour and is upgrading it! It is going to be more high-tech with new scenes and my local newspaper seems to be obsessed with the fact that they are adding three singing cows. It won't re-open until April. It's about time IMO, I ride that every year and IMO its getting a little boring.

Well, if it were 2 singing cows I could see where it wouldnt be newsworthy.. but three?? Now thats headline news.

I missed the chocolate tour when we went last year. I will definately have to check it out next time I go.

As long as they still pass out chocolate at the end it's fine with me!
