He was unaware that notable NFL players such as Dan Marino, Joe Namath and Joe Montana had played in the game.

"During the winter, the temperatures are too cold - for most roller coasters, it must be above 32 degrees for them to operate," says Kathy Burrows, the park's public relations manager. "If the tracks aren't warm enough, they just won't go." Thank goodness it's supposed to be plenty warm enough this weekend for Hershey's annual "Springtime In the Park" celebration.

But if you don't have kids, want to leave them at home or with a hotel baby-sitting service, or would just like to divide your time between family and adult activities, you may be pleasantly surprised at the fun that grown-ups can have in Hershey -- without ever going near Chocolate World or Hersheypark.
