I would think Dutch Wonderland and Cherry Crest Farm are closed in the winter . Those were two places my kids loved when they were little.

Honestly, theres nothing to do in Lancaster in the winter. All outdoor attractions are closed.

You can visit one of the food factories. Herrs etc. turkey hill farm. You can see if the hotel has a pool. There is a small children’s museum if you have membership to another children’s museum it has reciprocal privileges

Crayola is nowhere near Lancaster/Hershy. They're a good 2-2 1/2 hour drive apart.

Interesting idea! Lancaster/Hershey Park is usually a summer trip for us. But now that I'm thinking, you could probably have a great time! There is the choo-choo barn (I've never been but neighbors have kids who love it). We have gone to the Railroad museum when I had a son who loved trains and he liked it a lot. In addition to these huge trains, they had a room with a display of little trains that you could press buttons to activate certain parts and make it light up or move that they enjoyed a lot. Also, I think there is a hotel with an indoor water park, so maybe that runs in the winter, not sure what its called. Also, we drove from Lakewood once and passed through Pennsylvania to go to a lego discovery center which was very nice. Not really sure if its on the way, or we just made some convoluted stop. Also the food factory tours as someone mentioned are fun too. and the Hershey's Factory tour is also fun and free. And they have a 4D show there also, so you can spend some more time there (and money, lol.)

We stayed at the Lancaster Marriott quite some years ago so I'm assuming its still there unless it was bought out or changed names.
