Hersheypark Set For New “Chocolatetown”


HERSHEY (AP) – Hersheypark will get a new roller coaster that officials say will be the park’s “tallest, longest, fastest, and sweetest” ever. The $150 million Chocolatetown attraction will “unlock an all-new chapter.” The 23-acre area will include a restaurant, confectionary kitchen, and an ice cream parlor. Patrons will also be able to shop at a 10,000-square-foot store. According to park filings with the Federal Aviation Administration, the ride will be classified as a “hypercoaster” because it rises over 200 feet. The expansion project is the largest capital investment in the company‚Äôs history. Chocolatetown is expected to be completed in time for the 2020 season.
