Reese’s Cupfusion on Track to Open in Summer 2019
Sneak Peek of Ride Construction
In August 2018, Hersheypark announced mission details for an all-new interactive gaming ride, Reese’s Cupfusion, set to debut in summer 2019. The attraction merges the world’s love of chocolate and peanut butter to create a sweet full-sensory dark ride adventure with multiple ways to play for the entire family. The love for Reese's is at the center of it all as guests experience interactive game play throughout the attraction.
Riders become Reese’s Agent Trainees at a futuristic factory that runs on Reese’s Spirit. At the heart of the factory is the legendary Crystal Cup, which collects and amplifies the love of chocolate and peanut butter to create Cupfusion Energy that powers the factory. The mission is to protect the Crystal Cup and ensure that the factory keeps running under the guidance of Commander Cup, so the world is never deprived of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups.
However, Mint the Merciless and The League of Misfit Candy are always around the corner trying to steal the Crystal Cup for their own “evil” purposes. To protect the factory, Reese’s Agent Trainees must activate targets that power the factory, stun intruders and work together with fellow agents to unlock extra points.
Construction began in September 2018. Throughout the winter, our team was hard at work building the various scenes in the factory that will tell the story of Reese's Cupfusion. They put up larger-than-life wall installations and engineered six different types of targets to provide multiple ways to play. Reese’s Agent Trainees will earn points and try to get a coveted spot on the Reese’s Legend Hall Of Fame.
Currently, our team is laying the track for the ride and building the Reese’s Transports, which will take Reese's Agent Trainees through the factory.
As we gear up to open the attraction in summer 2019, follow along with #Hersheypark2019 on social media for additional construction updates. To learn more about Reese's Cupfusion or purchase tickets to Hersheypark, visit Hersheypark.com.
