Hersheypark has released details of its new Candymonium hypercoaster, the amusement park’s 15th coaster. The hypercoaster will feature a lift height of 210 feet, a maximum speed of 76 m.p.h. and a track length of 4,636 feet, making it the tallest, fastest and longest coaster in Hersheypark.

Candymonium will open in summer 2020 as part of the all-new Hershey’s Chocolatetown region, Hersheypark’s $150 million expansion. The addition of this 15th coaster also means Hersheypark will have the most coasters of any park in the Northeast in 2020.

“As The World’s Sweetest Coaster, Candymonium will truly merge fun and iconic Hershey brands to provide a thrilling experience our guests can only get in Hershey,” said John Lawn, president and CEO of Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company (HE&R), in a prepared statement.

Candymonium will span seven acres at the new entrance of Hershey’s Chocolatetown, a new region at Hersheypark where guests can play, eat, shop and gather year round. Guests will be welcomed by the signature milk chocolate-colored track and candy-themed trains representing the world-renowned Hershey Company brands of Hershey’s Kisses, Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups and Twizzlers.

The two-minute, 26-second ride on Candymonium is for those 54 inches or taller.
