Hersheypark is preparing to unwrap yet another new ride on Memorial Day weekend.
The ride, Reese’s Cupfusion, is an indoor ride where park guests can compete for high scores via a laser shooting target game. As the ride moves, guests can use the laser pointers to tag both stationary and moving targets as well as interactive characters on video screens to earn points.
The ride is also the first at Hersheypark to feature a story. Guests are welcomed as special agents for a secret mission by Commander Cup, an anthropomorphic Reese’s Peanut Butter Cup tasked with protecting the Reese’s factory and its power source, the Crystal Cup. The League of Misfit Candies, led by Mint the Merciless, are out to steal the cup, and riders must zap the sugary rascals before they can abscond with it.
