Hersheypark had hoped to open in June, but has now pushed the date back another month during the coronavirus pandemic.

Summer tickets purchased before the start of the 2020 summer season will remain valid for any public operating day through June 30, 2021, including all seasonal events, according to the post.

“Our team is hard at work implementing a variety of new safety initiatives to welcome our guests back to a fun and safe environment,” the park said. “... We will share more details closer to our reopening.”
