if those two are your only other choices, i would personally go to busch gardens. however, look into kings island as well. its in SW ohio and is much closer to cedar point than hershey or BG.
I have been to both Hershey and Busch Gardens. I would go with Busch Gardens hands-down. I don't know where you will be in PA, but if you will be near Philly area Six Flags is about 1 1/2 hour drive. Whatever you choose, have a great time.
Busch Gardens would most definitely get my vote! The park is absolutely beautiful - the scenery alone makes it a memorable experience. I really enjoy visiting each "European Village" - great little details and very charming! There are many great rides (some fun coasters) and the shows are fantastic. My favorite was the Irish Dance - talented dancers and singers! Also notable is the Jack Hannah Wild Animal Reserve - beautiful. We also enjoyed the opportunity to see the Clydesdales up close (wow are they big!). We've visited the park three times and have loved it each time - would not hesitate to recommend a visit to this park. If you go, check out the Williamsburg VA forum - there are some great tips for a day at BG - including information on the BG "Meal Deal".
