The Monorail Amusement Company opened the Monorail at Hershey Park in June 1969. Because the company was owned by both Hershey Estates and Hershey Foods, the Monorail was not considered a Hershey Park ride. Here are number of free ride vouchers offered – some which were specifically made by Hershey Foods. You could access the Monorail at two platforms: by Hershey Sports Arena or downtown behind Hershey Drug Store.
The Monorail remained a separate ride from Hersheypark until 1973.
I have a wide variety of interests, from sports to politics, music to Star Trek. I write about the history of amusement parks. Right now I am focused on Hersheypark.
