Hershey Park

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am going to be going to Hershey Park very soon, in the next month or so. I was hoping someone would be able to give me an idea of what I can eat there. This is our first visit since my diaganosis. We always get the Pizza, but that is out!!! Never really looked around at the other items since the pizza was so good. Thanks to anyone that is able to help me.

I am from that area and I can tell you this.

Hotel Hershey-serves gluten free meals...listed on a menu, a little pricey and not really a place for children but I see kids there.

Red Robin--I have had nothing but good things to say about that place. It is located alongside the park. On HersheyPark Drive

Issacs which is away from the park a bit, is also good with allergies. I have had good things there.

Outback--not in Hershey at all, Union Deposit off I-83.

Festia Mexico is off of I-83 Paxton st exit. Just take 322 to I-83S and it's the first exit.

I love their fajhitas (no tortilla) and tacos.

I seldom go to Hershey Park, and when I don't stay long enough to eat. I am not even sure what is all to eat at the park. I usually buy dippin dots.

I do eat in the other places I listed because I work in Hershey and we often go out to lunch. I can help in that area.

What about anything within Hershey Park...not in Hershey itself?

There's a jewish market there. I can't remember the name of it, but it has a small list of gluten free items: hot dogs, potato chips, etc. Just be sure that they're planning on being open the day that you're going. I know they close for all Jewish holidays and some other days too. The same jewish market is at Dutch Wonderland and I always just get a hot dog no bun. Also, you're allowed to take in a small, soft sided cooler if you have allergies (or Celiac).

Hi Kim,

Hershey Park is amazing. Go to their website and type in "gluten free". They have three of the restaurants with gluten-free bread stored in their freezer, and you can come in ask for a sandwich or burger or whatever on gluten-free bread. They defrost it on a separate paper plate and hand it to you.

I keep kosher and have celiac, so I asked for a gluten-free bun without the hamburger, and they gave me this delicious gluten-free warm, defrosted bread. I was very happy.

You might want to call the particular restaurant before you go, though, and make sure they still have gluten-free bread. I think it's a case of, someone buys it, but do they remember to buy more when they run out?

Have a great time. I know I did.

Thank you everyone for all of your help. We have gone to Hershey Park many times, but I have never needed to worry about special food. This makes the idea of going sound much more fun. I can enjoy myself if I don't need to worry about where I will eat and how I will feel.

    The biopsy would need to come from your small intestine. That's where the damage is done from celiac. But you need to be on a gluten diet for the tests to be accurate. How long have you been on the PPIs? My hubby had severe acid reflux issues ...
    The doctor did 8 biopsy from the top of my throat to the bottom of my stomach....he thought I had H-Hyploi..but I did not. I am beginning to think they are missing my issues. He gave me some pump inhibitors, that's it. I have an appt. with...
    Your doctor would run a blood tests (ask for full celiac panel) and then confirm with endoscopy and biopsy celiac doesn't always show up on endoscopy and sometimes the biopsy is what confirms.
