HERSHEY, Pa. (WHTM) — A guest favorite at Hershey Park is celebrating 50 years of shows and fun this month.
The Hersheypark Aquatheatre opened during one of the park’s redevelopment plans back in the 1970s. It is located near the Trailblazer roller coaster and features a fun and educational way to learn about seal mammals that are native to our oceans.

Hersheypark has partnered with the nonprofit organization Ocean Connections, which hopes to inspire conservation awareness and public action for the oceans through education.
This summer, the Aquatheatre is hosting the ‘Our Friends from the Sea” show, which features California sea lions, Atlantic harbor seals, and a rescued grey seal pup named Bowie. The Aquatheatre experience is included in the price of a Hersheypark ticket.
There will be add-ons available for purchase such as a fish feeding right after show for $20 and splash photo opportunities for $37. VIP tickets, which include a tour of the facility and a private poolside training session with the seals/sea lions, are available for $100.
