Amid the new coronavirus pandemic, Hersheypark shared some not-so-sweet news when it announced that it would shutter its doors for Springtime in the Park scheduled for April 4 through April 19. 

But, active daredevils can rejoice a little bit because the amusement park is still giving you front row perks to their rides. 

From the comfort of your couch, you can virtually get on 15 of the park’s “mild to wild” roller coasters. The in-house activity can be found here. 

Hersheypark says that they still plan to open for the 2020 operating season on May 1 and that Springtime in the Park ticket purchasers can use their tickets for summer season through July 31, 2020.

Be sure to check the park’s website for updates or changes: hersheypa.com.
