We are so excited that Hersheypark Amusement Park announced today its 2019 plans for a brand new interactive dark ride, Reese’s Cupfusion! Combining everyone’s love of chocolate and peanut butter with an amazing dark ride experience with advanced, multi-level game player technology, will be sure to create a ride that the whole family can enjoy! The new interactive attraction will be located in Founder’s Way and is slated to open in the Summer of 2019.
According to a recent press release, Kevin Stumpf, VP of Sports & Attractions at Hershey Entertainment & Resorts noted, “We are thrilled to announce the one-of-a-kind gaming attraction that is Reese’s Cupfusion. We pride ourselves on creating unique and memorable family experiences that can only be enjoyed at Hersheypark and this new attraction will do just that.”
Reese’s Cupfusion will engage multiple senses during the ride; sight, smell, touch and sound. I mean who wouldn’t love a ride that smells like chocolate and peanut butter??? Throughout the ride, guests will experience an interactive family game, where they can earn points throughout the adventure. Each rider becomes 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. Sounds fun, doesn’t it?
The ride is family-friendly with 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.
