The finishing touch is an impressive panoramic banked curve that wraps around the new iconic Kisses Fountain.

The ride spans seven acres (three hectares) of Hershey’s Chocolatetown.

B&M delivers “Our all-new region of Hershey’s Chocolatetown is the place where fun meets chocolate,” explains Hulquist. “We wanted to add a world-class roller coaster to the 23-acre development as a marquee element that our guests will see upon arrival to The Sweetest Place On Earth! We were able to leverage our unique IP and assemble the finest ingredients to create the one-of-a-kind hypercoaster, which sets records for us at Hersheypark.”

“Guests visiting Candymonium have enjoyed our fully themed coaster station with a fun, candy inspired experience from start to finish,” she continues. “The unique layout of our coaster crossing over Spring Creek and then entering our new region makes it a stand out attraction. Guests have raved about the airtime and ultimate feeling of freedom they experience on the seven camelback hills. Many guests have commented that the experience is truly different depending on what row you select. We’ve also heard many compliments about the smoothness of the ride,


Chocolatetown and our desire to make a statement in the arrival of our guests, we specifically approached B&M about this project,” Hulquist recalls. “We asked them to deliver on a thrilling, only in Hershey experience. For us, that meant a hypercoaster spanning seven acres through our all-new region of Hersheypark that our guests will love and seek to ride countless times. B&M is a leader in the industry and known for making thrilling and smooth coasters. We had a successful partnership with them in 1998 when we added Great Bear to our coaster lineup. We were confident that they would deliver another incredible attraction - and that they did!”

Sweet experience Hulquist has ridden Candymonium many times. “While riding Candymonium, I personally enjoy the amazing vista in front of you after you climb the lift hill with anticipation. The airtime floating you along the many camelbacks creates moments where you literally feel like you are flying. I love leaning into the helix turn when you glide into Chocolatetown around our signature Hershey’s Kiss Fountain. And, I enjoy the overall smoothness of the entire experience. Equally enjoyable and perhaps the most rewarding part of this ride is being able to see the joy of our guests and their positive reactions while riding our sweetest coaster. It is such a humbling feeling to see all of the hard work our entire team has put into honoring the life and legacy of our founder, Milton S. Hershey, throughout this new region, where we feature Candymonium.” Candymonium joins other mild to wild coasters,

family-friendly favorites, and kiddie rides at Hersheypark this summer. Included in admission is The Boardwalk At Hersheypark waterpark with more than one million gallons of water, and ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park, an 11-acre walk- through zoo that cares for more than 200 animals. The addition of Candymonium has had an

immediate effect on the guest experience. “Even before our guests enter Hershey’s Chocolatetown,” Hulquist notes, “Candymonium is the first thing they see, adding to the anticipation and excitement for their sweet experience. We expect Candymonium, and the new Hershey’s Chocolatetown, to drive interest and attendance for years to come. And while we couldn’t have predicted the impact of COVID-19, we are thrilled to offer our guests something new in an unprecedented year.”
