9 Awesome Independent Amusement Parks


Hersheypark (Hershey, Pennsylvania)

Just about an hour’s drive west from Dorney Park sits the chocolate giant Hershey’s own theme park complete with chocolate-themed rides and an extensive kids’ ride section, but they also offer some great coasters like their world-famous SooperDooperLooper. Skyrush and Storm Runner are also among guest favorites.

Hersheypark also offers some great multi-day packages for out-of towners and some very attractive season passes for those who live close enough to visit frequently.

We’ll be back in Pennsylvania for what we think is the best in the bunch in a minute, but let’s head Northeast now for a look at a great independent park in central New England.
