General Resort News - (10/16/21) Many of the waterslides and waterpark attractions at Hersheypark are getting repainted and refreshed ahead of the 2022 season.
In other news Hersheypark has opened a new “Hershey S’mores and More” location at the park, just in time for guests to get their fix of the yummy ooey-gooey snack sensation. Photo credits to “Adventure That Rock”.
(10/6/21) A new video showing off the latest projects taking place at Hersheypark has been posted to YouTube and is watchable below. In this latest video from the park they show off some repainting being done to SooperDooperLooper, repaint prep on Sidewinder and Cocoa Cruiser, prep for Candylane and more.
Meanwhile a Screamscape reader also visited the park and took some great shots of the SooperDooperLooper repaint, where the vertical loop has been changed from blue to white, which is actually a return to the ride’s original color. In fact, based on a very old photo found online, the ride was not only all white, with some orange paint on the rails, but featured orange trains as well. So as we approach the 2022 season, SooperDooperLooper will be turning 45 and appears to be returning to its original color scheme.
(9/21/21) Good news Hersheypark fans… the park confirmed via tweet the other day that Skyrush is now open once again.
(9/18/21) A new video update shot at Hersheypark has discovered a few interesting things. This includes the discovery of some new survey flags located between Chocolate World’s parking entrance and the old pool area. It also appears that a new lift hill cable has been installed onto the spool for Skyrush, and the train put back into the station.
(8/31/21) Hersheypark will soon be featured as the background for a new baking competition show coming to the Food Network. The show will be called “Chocolate Meltdown: Hershey’s After Dark” and it will premier on the cable channel on Sept. 27, 2021. There will be four episodes at first, each featuring a trio of pastry chefs locked in the theme park after hours, where they must solve clues, brave some of the rides to earn Hershey sweets to use in their creations, which will be built with the help of just one assistant within the Chocolate World store.
The limited series will be part of the Food Network’s Halloween themed programming lineup, so don’t be surprised if the creations they are asked to make fit a spooky theme or two.
