      That stinks, it really does. But did you know that Hershey has had a plant in Mexico since Milton's time? He went down there for the sugar. Built huge factories and even railroads to get the sugar up to the U.S. Others started to copy him. I'm not saying it was the right thing to do, just that he did it so long ago.

      If anyone is interested in the Hershey history, a good book to pick up is:

      Hershey: Milton S. Hershey's Extraordinary Life of Wealth, Empire, and Utopian Dreams
      Michael D'AntonioFormat: Hardcover
      Pub. Date: January 2006

        I am a theme park/coaster/Disney junkie I have been to parks all over the world. I love Hershey Park. It reminds me of Disney more than any other non Disney theme park. Obviously not on the same scale but it does. It's a beautiful park, the landscaping is always incredible. It has a lot of the same child magical qualities. Yet, it has the great adreneline rides!

        I think it is a diservice to say it can't be called a Theme Park. I think it accomplishes this very well. Let's face it, comparing any other park to Disney, there will be an obvious winner. Disney is the best. That's why they are so successful.

        You'll find a slight squeeze on the hooter an excellent safety precaution, Miss Scrumptious. :blush:
