Newly Reopened Hersheypark Debuts 'Candymonium Hypercoaster' After $150 Million Expansion

The park's new Chocolatetown expansions also boasts the first-ever Starbucks inside Hersheypark, as well as Hyperdeck, "an immersive virtual reality experience."

It will also be debuting a new "10,000-square-foot flagship retail experience," Hersheypark Supply Co., where guests will have access to a wide range of clothing, gifts, and toys.

Hersheypark first announced the news of the expansion and Candymonium in July of 2019.

Earlier this year, the park closed its doors amid the pandemic. They outline their new protocols on their website, explaining that all guests over the age of 2 must wear a face covering at all time, except for while eating and while on certain attractions. Guests who can’t wear a face mask are asked to wear a face shield if possible. Rides will also have limited seating to allow for more space between guests.

“Guests should also be prepared to undergo a temperature screening with a contactless, infrared thermometer prior to entering Hersheypark,” the park explains on its website. Anyone with a temperature of 100.4 degrees or above will be refused entry.
