Hershey Park, located in Hershey, PA, offers indoor experiences in their “Chocolate World” location. This segment is located outside the main park and houses the “Hershey’s Chocolate Tour Ride,” a store and other experiences like a “Hershey’s Unwrapped” theater experience and a “Create Your Own Candy Bar” experience. Now they have announced that they will offer a Sensory Friendly Night for individuals with sensory issues.
Sensory Friendly Night will take place on March 15, from 6PM to 8PM. To make it a better experience for those with sensory issues they will offer several adaptations including: reduced audio, thematics, dimmed lighting and relaxed theater rules.
