I didn't even realize how far they were going until Friday afternoon (not big on football). But you are so right, they accomplished a great run on their way to the State title & they make the whole community proud.

Hello fellow Pennsylvanians! We are from Jonestown - a small town located in Lebanon County. We live about 15 minutes from Hershey. When traveling, we usually tell people we're from Hershey - mostly everyone knows where that is.

We are planning on flying to Orlando for our upcoming trip. Right now I can get pretty good airfare out of Baltimore flying AirTran. Harrisburg is only about 35 minutes from our house and we'd love to fly out of there, but the only return flight offered on our way home leaves Orlando at 8:30 in the morning and that is just too early for us.

Hey all.

New to the boards as a poster, been reading through for a bit. I'm from the Wilkes Barre/Scranton area, and I go to school at Penn State. Looking forward to some great discussions.

Hershey is our second favourite place to vacation! (Disney being our first, naturally.)

Isn't it wonderful there? I'm sure you are familiar with the ins and outs of that park - I rode my first roller coaster at Hershey this past June. Actually, two of them...Comet and Lightning Racer.

Have you ever been on either?

Come home safe and soon, Rich.
Thank you for being so kind, SpaceMtnFan!

Hi
I am from NEPA. Kids are home today because of ice.. This is our 3rd snow day since school started. Looks like we are in for a long winter.

Hi, NeverLandDreamer! Yes, I have been on both of those roller coasters - Lightning Racer is my favorite coaster in the park! We actually have season passes to Hersheypark, so we spend a great amount of time there throughout the year. My two-year-old twins love it there. My one little guy asks me almost everyday if we can go to the park. It's so cute! If you haven't ever been to Hershey at Christmas, I'd recommend it. The park is very nice to visit during that time - you just have to bundle up because it gets cold.

I'm glad to hear that you like Hershey as much as we do.

You should have seen my mom coming off of the Lightning Racer. Our coaster did beat the opposing one which my brother and dad were in (huzzar!), but my mom and I were terrified! We were practically chanting, 'Never again! Never again!' That was frightening...but enjoyable.

How cute that your son asks to go every day!! Never been there at Christmas. I can't imagine how cold it would be. I would probably be wearing five sweaters.

Have you been on Fahrenheit or Storm Runner? I love watching those take off.

Hey Everyone!

I'm a newcomer here, from South Philadelphia! We'll be headed down there from Jan 12-16 with a group from my college.

Looking forward to getting to know folks who are just as Disney-crazy as me!

I was supposed to go to Disney on 11/27 but I broke my ankle. So now I have a long wait until June. However, I told DH that because I missed my Disney trip I wanted to go to Hershey for the day. I would love to see it at Christmas Penny

I hope you get to go to Hershey!

Disney is my #1 love with Hershey at #2

Here's hoping my ankle heals enough that we can go.

I've been on both of those roller coasters. Storm Runner isn't one of my favorites, but I do enjoy Fahrenheit. My boys enjoy watching both of them.
