Hersheypark plans expansion project
HERSHEY (AP) — Hersheypark is hosting a 23-acre, $150 million expansion project.
Renovations include a new roller coaster that officials say will be the park’s “tallest, longest, fastest and sweetest” ever. The ride will be classified as a “hypercoaster” because it will rise over 200 feet.
The area will include a restaurant and bar, a confectionary kitchen and an ice cream parlor.
Visitors will also be able to shop at a 10,000-square-foot store.
The famed Hersheypark entrance will be replaced with a new entrance closer to the Chocolate World visitor center.
Chocolatetown is expected to be complete by the 2020 season.
