    Wi-fi in Hershey Park

    Post  ReesesCup4 on Thu Jan 13, 2011 11:14 pm

    Does anyone know if they are going to be adding Wi-fi in the park? The Hershey Park iPhone App says in the description (WiFi not currently available in park). Just wondering if anyone can get information on this?

    Welcome to the site.

    The park does offer wi-fi currently only in Tudor Square and lower Rhineland, but they might not offer it right now since the park isn't open. I can see them maybe expanding this service a little bit more deeper into the park hopefully this season.

    Quite possibly for this season, if not then I don't see why they would wait until next season. I have used the wifi around the gates, but that's pretty much it. Wifi probably isn't too big of a deal for HP, since I don't know why you would go to the park looking to browse the Internet on a laptop. But, I guess it helps if maybe you have an iPod Touch or iPhone or something of the likes. Wink

    iPod Touch and iPhone would be the primary reason for the wi-fi access. Many places are doing it nowadays. I agree that no one is going to drag a laptop to sit outside of Hersheypark's gates just so they can browse the internet.

    If they don't wire the whole park with wi-fi, then maybe they can do it in the various restaurants, etc.. The Minetown Restaurant would be a good candidate, and maybe the numerous sitting areas that are throughout the park. Just a little bit to get it started.

    Hey guys I can confirm that Wi-Fi is now available all around the park! I'm an employee at the park and carried my iPod Touch around to detect the network. Wi-Fi shows up at all areas of the park, the only area I haven't tested yet is boardwalk/midway america.

    Great to know! Midway tends to be the part of the park that I relax and have something to eat, so wi-fi would be nice to have there so I check some email, maybe browse the web. I haven't been there to try it out myself, however.

    I hope this is true because I don't have an iphone just an ipod touch and ipad. It will be nice to check email and maybe post a few pics to facebook or here while I'm at the park. Also check the radar when clouds move in.

    I was just wondering, are these / will these be just wi-fi hotspots or will the connection be strung throughout the park somehow? Like are they only at maybe restaurants or shop areas or along the paths as well? Or maybe that is the plan in the future?

    They're actually throughout the whole park I believe. I was on my iTouch at the park last Friday and got wi-fi inside Gourmet Grill in Minetown, but I saw signs throughout the park advertising it. This was much-needed especially if you own an iTouch that doesn't have a built-in network.
    This is pretty cool because now you'd be able to surf the internet while you're in-line for Fahrenheit or Comet. If the wait is an hour long, then this will absolutely make time fly by.

    ^Thanks for the reply.
    I can't believe I never thought of using the wi-fi whiile waiting on line. Sitting on a bench or at a restaurant is what comes to mind first for me. Now that you mention it, it is great to be able to surf the web while in line - probably one of the most effective uses for the wi-fi, imo.
