Reese’s Cupfusion – Hersheypark’s Newest Attraction Opening Summer 2019
There’s some sweet news coming out of Hersheypark today. Opening in 2019, the Reese’s themed ride will be the park’s latest attraction. The brand new interactive dark ride will officially be called Reese’s Cupfusion and will merge the world’s love of chocolate and peanut butter with a dark ride experience and state-of-the-art, multi-level game player technology that will have something for everyone.
As a 2018 Hersheypark Sweetest Mom, I’ve partnered with Hershey to share all the latest and best news right from the park.
Reese’s Cupfusion will replace the Reese’s Xtreme Cup Challenge, which will close permanently on September 3, 2018 so work can begin on the newest attraction.
The new interactive ride will be located in Founder’s Way and is set to open Summer of 2019.
Reese’s Cupfusion will engage multiple senses during the ride; sight, smell, touch and sound. The love for Reese’s is the center of it all as guests experience interactive family game play throughout the attraction with multiple ways to earn points.
Riders will become a Reese’s Agent Trainee at Reese’s Central, a futuristic factory that runs on Reese’s Spirit. At the heart of Reese’s Central is the legendary Crystal Cup, which collects and amplifies the love of chocolate and peanut butter to create Cupfusion Energy that powers the factory.
As a Reese’s Agent Trainee, it’s the guests’ mission to protect the Crystal Cup and ensure that the factory keeps running under the guidance of Commander Cup, a new character to be introduced in 2019. Other new characters like Mint the Merciless and The League of Misfit Candy are always around the corner trying to steal the Crystal Cup for their own “evil” purposes. Guests can unlock additional features and try to beat their score with every ride to become a Reese’s Legend in the Hall of Fame.
This will be a family friendly ride and will have a height requirement of a Kisses category and up (36” and up). Kisses and Reese’s height categories must be accompanied by a supervising companion to ride.
The new attraction joins more than 70 rides available for guests during the 2019 season at Hersheypark Amusement Park as part of a 3-parks-in-one Hersheypark admission, including ZooAmerica North American Wildlife Park and The Boardwalk At Hersheypark water park.
