Was there a few years ago ( not the suite ) they had 1 floor that was pretty bad, I had booked through Hotwire  and they refused to relocate me to a different floor.

For the record, "Go n Bananas" is great, especially in the rain. It's like Chuck e Cheese and ice cream kids(Lakewood) on steroids. Cooler, Funner, Bigger etc.

Sheraton Harrisburg is where you'll have the minyanim,assuming it's not too late in the season.

What aged kids would you say would enjoy?

My and 5, 6 and 8 year olds loved it. My 3 year old enjoyed the animals but it was definitely not his favorite activity.

Hershey park sukkot - you can get the ticket and Insurance (option to cancel) for the price of a regular ticket group rate. Use the code special.

Can someone add this to the wiki?
Kosher food.

I called the college which has kosher meals, but they are off now and luckily he mentioned about the Weis supermarket on fruitville road that carries packaged deli and cheese.

The deli came in really handy today!

Done.
If you focus on being a boss, you will never be a leader. Leaders lead people to growth and improvement.
