Let's talk about the Sweetest Place on Earth.

Apparently, track is being fabricated in Ohio for their 2020 coaster.

Curious if anyone's been this year. Do the new drop towers here have the new seat belts like the older ones? I know the restraints are different and previously had no belts anywhere on them.

No official announcement has been made about the coaster yet. Some videos of it from the Chocolate Town video http://www.hersheypark.com/chocolatetown/. Looks like it'll be a very fun Nitro style ride, not intense like Skyrush but fun and enjoyable for all the types of people that go to Hershey.

I've seen a few comments about it being short but overall I think it looks like a nice addition.

I saw the complaining and I was like really.  People are too entitled, expect a giant gigs coaster every year and itís insane that they think the park owes them something!

The people on Great Adventure History also called it a baby Nitro.

I'm more hoping for a baby Mako...

Candymonium is still not on the park's website under rides. seems weird, but GA doesn't have Jersey Devil either.

Chocolate World has partially reopened. I feel it's enough to gauge what the park might do.
