The final piece of track of the new rollercoaster Candymonium has been laid at Hersheypark in Pennsylvania.

The Candymonium hypercoaster is part of a $150 million expansion of Hersey’s Chocolatetown.

Candymonium is the 15th coaster at Hershypark. The ride speeds around a 4,636ft. track for a duration of 2 minutes 26 seconds. Boasting a lift height of 210ft. and reaching a maximum speed of 76mph, Candymonium will be the theme park’s tallest and fastest coaster.

Hershey’s Chocolatetown is a 23-acre development, which is due to open this summer.

On laying the last piece of track of the highly awaited ride, Hershypark tweeted: “The final piece of chocolate brown track has been set on Candymonium.”

As well as being home to the park’s fastest and tallest ride, Hershey’s Chocolateown will feature the biggest themed restaurant in Hershey. Guests will also be able to enjoy refreshments at Milton’s Ice Cream Parlor and the Sweeterie.
