The Reviews Are In: Candymonium Is Sweet
Guests Love the Airtime and Speed of the New Hypercoaster at Hersheypark
Candymonium, the new hypercoaster spanning 7 acres in Hershey’s Chocolatetown, debuted to the public on July 3 as our tallest, fastest and longest coaster. With the most airtime of the 15 coasters at Hersheypark, our team thinks Candymonium offers a smooth, yet thrilling ride experience. But, what do guests and coaster fans have to say about the out-and-back style coaster?
Check out these sweet reviews of Candymonium during the first week of operation this summer.

Coaster101.com: "Candymonium has everything you would expect a new B&M Hyper to deliver: loads of airtime, quick turnarounds, and a smoothness that is second to none. The airtime hills give fantastic floater at the top of every single one, and the speed hill and off-axis airtime moment are a great indicator of what B&M have up their sleeve in the future."
Between the preview night and today I have 6 rides on Candymonium. This by far exceeded my expectations! I’m a fan. The air time is fantastic.— Bobby Anspach (@BobBobBobbyo) July 2, 2020

Candymonium, is my favorite B&M hyper and is a perfect addition to an already stellar lineup at @Hersheypark.— Ross H (@Zoug68) July 2, 2020
Candymonium is a blast. Great thrilling drop up front with at least two fantastic airtime moments over the big humps. Definitely an easily ridden thrill ride... not TOO thrilling, but just enough! @Hersheypark pic.twitter.com/ZlTROQe8aG— Attractions Magazine (@Attractions) July 2, 2020
Attractions Magazine: "Candymonium is a hyper-coaster that lives up to that name, packing in thrills without leaving riders rattled. Hyper-coasters emphasize speed and airtime over inversions, meaning that even though you’ll never go upside-down on Candymonium, guests won't be missing any feelings of exhilaration."
I know I look concerned here.. but #Candymonium was an absolute blast! So smooth and SO MUCH AIR TIME! @BrettThackABC27 and I loved it so much, we rode it twice! @Hersheypark @abc27News #27Daybreak pic.twitter.com/8gUKKpGoQ4— Ali Lanyon (@AliLanyonABC27) July 2, 2020
