A Look Inside the Water Works at the Hershey Lodge + The Boardwalk at Hersheypark Lazy River and Wave Pool Fun with Kids

Our End of Summer Extravaganza:

Day 1 at Dutch Wonderland

Day 2 at the Turkey Hill Experience 

Day 3 at Sesame Place

And the finale before going back to school – two days in Hershey, PA!

It’s funny, the day after school ended for the summer we picked up and spent the day at Hersheypark and two days before going back to school we said goodbye to summer with a BANG at Hershey.

What can I say, we love it there! And SO Much has changed with the boys over the summer – they’ve grown up so much, have gotten so big and both are now SWIMMERS so I thought that deserved an extra special treat before starting school.

They deserve it.

Most days!

This time, we stayed at the Hershey Lodge, because I wanted to have a day to spend at the Water Works! It’s an indoor water park that’s part of your stay at the lodge. It has a zero gravity entry, two Twizzler Twist racing slides, Reese’s Water Walk, and various spray + slide fun for smaller kiddos! We love it there because you can spend HOURS in the pool – it’s a great way to start or end your stay in Hershey, PA and because it’s indoor, its open all year long! Win!

Since the boys now both swim it’s a no brainer to take them to the Lodge so they can swim and play with each visit. Such a great perk to an overnight stay!

Here’s my latest video I put together with a look inside the Water Works at the Hershey Lodge along with our fun at The Boardwalk at Hersheypark, specifically the Lazy River {Intercoastal Waterway} and Wave Pool {The Shore} – these were two things we had never done at Hersheypark before, so I wanted to share with you what it’s like for two kids – aged 4.5 and almost 3!

Check it out here and let me know what you think:

Spoiler Alert: They had a blast.

Fun Fact: The Water Works has a great Cocoa Cabana which has great sips and eats for everyone to enjoy while the kids play!

Be sure to check out the video to see Graham’s latest trick { a back flip – ha!} along with a close call of him jumping off the side of the pool backwards. It hurts me to watch it, every time I cringe!

And for fun, here are some more snaps of our two days at Hersheypark. Because we were staying at the Lodge, we were able to get into Hersheypark 5 hours before it closed the night before {FOR FREE!} Anyone can do it when you stay at a Hersheypark resort! More on that in this post!

Can’t wait for our next visit to the Sweetest Place on Earth!

When is your favorite time to visit Hershey?

Fall, Winter, Spring or Summer?!

    We are planning a trip there this winter for my daughter’s birthday. I am thinking the Hershey Lodge is the way to go! One night might not be enough!
