This ranks up there with Denny's "Moons Over My Hammy" as one of the silliest product names ever.

Along the way, feel the rush of The World’s Sweetest Coaster when our largest coasters, Skyrush® and Candymonium, cross paths and create the thrilling moment known as, Candyrush℠.

1. They actually trademarked Candyrush?

2. From the rendering, it appears that this moment occurs on the Candymonium brake run. Very thrilling.

I love Hersheypark but their PR department needs less coffee.

Well, it's a service mark, but yeah, that might be even more of a stretch.

I suspect this will be a pretty great ride. I haven't been on a B&M that I didn't love built the last few years.

In my brain there are already, like, 5 different rides at Hershey with the name Candymonium.

Hershey already has a pretty great and unique coaster lineup. This just sweetens the deal. Pun intended.

Watched the video. It does look like a great B&M coaster.

But I may be referring to it as That Coaster as I'm not sure I can Candymonium without laughing.

It will be a strong ride coming from that manufacturer

Hershey is overall a good oark with some great rides. but their degree of being a theme park has always been mediocre. Lately they seem to want to market their candy more than creating themed experiences. This name is really corny considering that it’s their biggest coaster

The new Chocolate area looks rather generic when it could have been more fantasy like (think Willy Wonka-ish)

Well the layout is interesting. Looks like they took some cues from their giga layouts and put them into hyper form.

I'm just glad they finally got tired of Intamin along with Merlin, Cedar Fair and Six Flags.

Yeah, right now Intamin is Universal's problem.

I'd argue that Hersheypark has always been exactly that: an amusement park that has never really focused on creating themed experiences...other than marketing their candy.

Maybe it's the perfect name, then.

This looks like a beautiful ride and I love the look of the new entrance area. I wish we'd gotten like a zoomed out layout image of the ride though. As far as the name is concerned...I candy-ven.

I really enjoy Hersheypark, but it's never been much of a theme park despite the involvement of Randall Duell & Associates designing the expanded park back the seventies.

Well... let’s think about this for a minute. It’s in Hershey, Pa- the town named for the man that invented milk chocolate that has kisses for street lamps. The park was developed to entertain the company’s employees and their families. The Hershey Company is still one of the largest American manufacturers of chocolate in the world. And it’s a pretty safe bet that if it weren’t for Hershey candy there would be no park on that corner, theme or otherwise

What the hell else SHOULD the focus of the amusement park be? A mouse?
