Hersheypark reopens after flooding. Rick Williams reports during Action News Mornings on July 24, 2018.

HERSHEY, Pa. (WPVI) -- Hersheypark reopened Tuesday morning after flooding forced the amusement park to close the previous day.

While not every ride is opened, those attending the park will receive a voucher for a future visit this summer, the park tell Action News.

Hersheypark along with Zoo America were closed Monday because of the weather.

The park tweeted Monday morning that the decision was made because of the excessive rainfall over the last three days and localized flooding.

It then announced the amusement park would reopen at 10 a.m. Tuesday, but ZooAmerica and The Boardwalk water park would remain closed.

In response to Twitter users questions, Hersheypark advises those visiting to check their app to see which rides are open.

Hersheypark tells Action News, "Our Boardwalk area is closed today so, of our 70 rides, we do have several rides closed given weather conditions. We are issuing return visit vouchers for anyone who visits today so they can enjoy another day before the end of summer!"
