Hersheypark In The Dark

This past weekend we were able to meet up with Paul and Kelsey, some island/California friends, that were in Pennsylvania for a few weeks doing a rotation at Penn State. We are hoping that he gets a residency at the hospital so we can see them more often...we missed them! We were so excited to have some time off together so we could go and explore Hersheypark.
Hersheypark is an amusement park in Hershey, which is a lot of fun for families. Right now the park has a Halloween theme and the hours are extended into the night a little more than their normal hours. They even renamed the rides with a more spooky name!
Even though I couldn't ride any of the rides, I still enjoyed walking through the park, taking in all the sights and watching Jason act like a kid again on all the rides. It was a different experience being at the park after dark, especially with all the Halloween decorations.
We couldn't walk through the park and not play some games. Our favorite was trying to bounce a frog from the launch pad onto the lily pad using a rubber mallet and some sort of launching gear...too much fun! We closed down the park, ate too much food and barely stopped talking long enough to breath. We had such a good time hanging with our friends! They will be getting married this summer so we're hoping to make a trip to see them on their big day!
