Hersheypark is a family theme park situated in Hershey, Derry Township, Pennsylvania, United States, about 15 miles (24 km) east of Harrisburg, and 95 miles (153 km) west of Philadelphia. As of 2013, the park is wholly and privately owned by Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company.
In 1903, Milton S. Hershey, founder of the Hershey Chocolate Company, surveyed a site along Spring Creek that would be suitable for his park. Until 1906, it was simply a little park area for Hershey employees to visit and have picnics. On May 30, 1906, Hershey dedicated the park and called it Hershey Park. Over the years, attractions were added and removed, including a roller coaster, thrill rides, and funhouses. In 1970, the park was redeveloped after being in disrepair for a number of years. The name was changed to Hersheypark and it has operated under that name ever since.
This photo was taken from Skyview, an aerial round-trip tramway over Spring Creek that provides a relaxing, quiet gondola ride.

Yıllar içinde, turistik bir tekerlekli kızak, heyecan binekleri ve eğlence evleri dahil, atraksiyonlar eklendi ve çıkarıldı. 1970 yılında, park birkaç yıl için terkedilmiş kaldıktan sonra tekrardan imar edildi. Adı Hersheypark’a değiştirildi ve o zamandan beri bu isim altında faaliyet göstermektedir.
Bu fotoğraf Skyview (Gökgörünümü), rahatlatıcı, sakin bir gondol sürüşü sağlayan Spring Çayı üzerinden bir havai gidiş-dönüş tramvaydan alınmıştır.

That is a dazzling display of colours all over the frame. Cheerful and bright it captures the atmosphere of an amusement park well. Good title too, that is another dominant feature of this photo.

Great red color of the air-chariotts, Murat, contrast well with green.
Face expession of the people show a bit of tireness maybe after a dreamy afternoon on the swings...
Nice collected moment,

My healthy fear of heights always had me scared to ride these things, but my love of the birds eye views always triumphed. I would have never thought to photograph something like this, but I'll be darned..it works! :) With a strong red/green/blue color combination and that human element, this is a real eye-catching display. Great conceptual photo, a very good idea and execution. Enjoy the day ahead.

How colors are so attractive in your photos I don't know, but they are lovely...always. A very good moment has been recorded here when all the riders (and their dangling feet) are visible.
Wonderful shot, enjoyed a lot.

You're capturing well this scene by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the gondla of a family theme park and visitors. It's interesting to hear that the founder of the Chocolate Company make such a thema park by investing the money and materials. I will be impressed if the person who always accomplished wealth in the company hears returning to citizens with education, culture, or an institution. It looks like the proof that the American society is healthy.
