The Bolliger & Mabillard Hyper will open next summer as the anchor for the Hershey's Chocolatetown project, which includes a new entrance for the park. The new coaster will be the park's tallest, longest, and fastest, at 210 feet tall, 4636 feet long and with a top speed of 76 miles per hour.
"As The World’s Sweetest Coaster, Candymonium will truly merge fun and iconic Hershey brands to provide a thrilling experience our guests can only get in Hershey," Hershey Entertainment & Resorts Company President and CEO John Lawn said. "We worked with leading industry manufacturer Bolliger & Mabillard to assemble a one-of-a-kind hypercoaster with the most airtime of any coaster in Hersheypark."
To generate that airtime, the new coaster will offer seven camelback hills, as well as a 123-degree hammerhead curve and finishing with a banked curve that wraps around the park's new Kisses Fountain.Tweet
