New food options will be available, including a Chick-Fil-A food truck. The menu for the gluten-free and nut-free stand The Outpost, located in Pioneer Frontier Food Court, has been redone and will debut on April 6. The kiddie rides Bizzy Bees and Ladybug have been re-themed to a Reese’s Cupfusion theme: Bizzy Bees is now Minty Bees and Ladybug is now Misfit Bug.

Carrousel turns 100

This Springtime is notable for this being the start of the celebration of the 100th birthday of Hersheypark’s Carrousel. The Carrousel, which was purchased by Hersheypark during World War II and installed in the park in 1945, was manufactured by Philadelphia Toboggan Company in 1919.
