    May be going for the first time this weekend. I have no idea how big it is compared to Busch Gardens or a Disney Park. Would it be worth bringing the stroller for a 4.5 year old? What process do you recommend for the water park part? I can’t see wearing suits underneath as it’s so hot out, would you recommend keeping them in a locker and changing before the water park? Any advice on which popular rides to hit first thing? How many hours does it take to get through most of the park. Ages are 4.5, 7 and 9. Not big enough for some coasters, only going on one or two.

    Any other tips appreciated!

    Thanks much,

    Stephanie :)

    We took our 4.5 year old last year and again this year and had a blast both times. About 2.5 hours to get there. We took our stroller, but you can rent one there if you like. It was handy to have because of all the walking and she passed out on the way back to the car. We went directly to the water park when we got there and had no lines. They have lockers there for your stuff or you can leave it in the car and walk back and forth. When we left the water park there was a long line to get in because they reach capacity when it gets warm out. That meant shorter lines for the dry rides when we left because they were all waiting to get into the water park. Get your kids measured once you get in. They'll get a bracelet that shows which rides they can/can't ride. Lots of rides for all ages. We had to leave early, but made it through most of the park between open and 6pm. Don't forget Hershey World. Air conditioning and tons of chocolate.
