See recent posts by Amanda Norcross

When it opens in 2020, Candymonium will be the tallest, fastest and longest roller coaster at Hersheypark. This also means Hersheypark will have more roller coasters than any other amusement park in the Northeast—Candymonium will be the park’s 15th.

The hypercoaster will start with a suspenseful, 210-foot ascent before it dips, twists and turns in a thrilling experience that includes seven camelback hills and a hammerhead curve.

Candymonium will span 7 acres at the new Hershey Chocolatetown and feature more air time than any other coaster in the park.

The ride will last a total of two minutes and 26 seconds. Riders must be 54 inches to ride Candymonium.
