You guessed it… to Hershey, Pennsylvania!
The weather today was calling for 99 degrees, Sunny, and Humid. What else is there to do than to make good use of my HersheyPark Season Passes?!?
After working my “day job” late last night until 4:30 AM, I got a few hours sleep, woke up around 8 AM, and hit the road. After doing some shopping briefly once we arrived in Hershey we hit the park, and went straight to the Boardwalk. It was pretty busy today, but nothing too bad. The lines were far from out of control. We went into the Lazy River twice, and actually spent about two hours or more the second time going around and around. Awesome time, and couldn’t ask for a more beautiful day for it!
We also walked around Zoo America and checked out all the animals including their newest exhibit, the Ocelot! I got some great shots of the Prairie Dogs. I also love to learn new things about Hershey every time I go and noticed a sign which showed “Monkey Island,” which was a feature from 1954-1971. Pretty awesome! Never really took the time to notice it before…..
Another part of the day which was pretty fun was that we got to check out one of HersheyPark’s newest Live shows, “Rock the Jukebox!” Pretty entertaining. We also found out that the Aquatheatre has a new show which we’ve yet to see, called “Showdown at Cocoa Canyon.” When we realized, we missed the last showing, so we’re hoping to see it on our next trip!
I am also big into following rumors going around involving HersheyPark. One of the latest is that the park will be adding a new rollercoaster either in 2011 or 2012. There are actually markings all over the park which show where certain “supports,” etc.. for the ride will be placed. I checked out several locations today and got a good idea of the layout. I’m looking forward to there becoming more information on this!
The rest of my day was filled with games, good food, photography, and just plain fun. I had a blast!
Now obviously I could just stop anywhere, at anytime, you just never know! My next scheduled vacation/trip/tour stop is July 24 until July 30th, followed by my last tour stop in Hershey once again on August 7th, one month from today. Due to several reasons I’m not actually sure what will end up happening. I do know that the Hershey stop on August 7th is for sure, however, the others are questionable.
Right now it’s scheduled for July 24th (my 26th Birthday) in Hershey, July 27th in Pittsburgh, and July 29th (my girlfriend’s 21st Birthday) in Atlantic City, New Jersey. The one that is pretty much guaranteed to happen is the Atlantic City trip. Stay Tuned! You just never know what might happen!
I’ve also already collected A LOT of photography so far you’ve yet to see for my secret project! This is going to be fun! And more details on 2011 coming shortly!
