Availability & Reservations

A deposit of 50% of the rental cost is due and payable upon execution of the Agreement for Use of the Facilities. This deposit will be applied towards the total rental fee. The final balance of the rental fee, as specified in the Agreement for Use of the Facilities, is due 30 days prior to the event date. Checks should be made payable to "Hershey Entertainment and Resorts."
