Hold onto your hats, roller coaster fans, because Hersheypark just announced the name and details of their 15th coaster, debuting in 2020! Read on to see what it will be like, and hear more about Hershey's Chocolatetown, the mega expansion which is already a work in progress. Be sure to watch the 2 minute video from the media event, too!

Disclosure: I am a proud member of the Hershey's Sweetest Families panel, which enables me to bring you info and posts all about Hersheypark and Hershey Entertainment and Resorts Properties. I was invited to a press event that announced the new coaster, so I'm excited to share this with you. You can read all of my Hershey posts here.

All About CANDYMONIUMHere's some fun info about Candymonium, straight from Hersheypark's press announcement:Hersheypark finally unwrapped the details of the Candymonium hypercoaster yesterday, which will be its 15th coaster. The hypercoaster will feature a lift height of 210 feet, maximum speed of 76 mph and track length of 4,636 feet, making it the tallest, fastest, longest, and sweetest coaster in Hersheypark!

Candymonium will open in summer 2020 as part of the all-new Hershey’s Chocolatetown region, Hersheypark’s $150 million transformational expansion. The addition of this 15th coaster also means Hersheypark will have the most coasters of any park in the Northeast in 2020! You can read more about Hershey's Chocolatetown in my update post here.

Candymonium will span 7 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 thrilling 2 minute and 26 second ride experience on Candymonium will begin as soon as guests 54” and taller (Twizzlers height requirement and above) enter the Park’s most immersive coaster station to date with extensive theming.

Riders will embark on a heart-pounding, 210-foot ascent up the tallest hill in Hersheypark before dipping into thrilling drops, including seven camelback hills and a 123-degree hammerhead curve that serve up the ultimate feeling of freedom with the most airtime in Hersheypark. The finishing touch is an impressive panoramic banked curve that wraps around the new iconic Kisses Fountain.
