All aboard! You’re about to embark upon a train-themed adventure to candy-inspired worlds…amazing, out-of-this-world places filled with TWIZZLERS tunnels, REESE’S swirlpools and HERSHEY’S KISSES hot air balloons. And have you heard that you get to help choose the train’s path?

This choose-your-adventure element is one of the best parts of our new cinematic attraction, HERSHEY’S Great Candy Expedition. But how will you and your fellow audience members decide which three worlds you’ll visit? You’ll start at the beginning of any train experience, that’s how!

Ahh, the station…with its tickerboard. Colorful destination posters . And, yes, the conductor. Our authentic version – inspired by the era of Milton Hershey’s travels – has them all. It’s where you’ll gather all the information you need to cast your votes in the theatre. And in true HERSHEY’S Chocolate World fashion, we have sweet surprises up our sleeve, too.

A few pointers to get the most out of your experience:

HERSHEY'S Great Candy Expedition Adventurer's Guide

Pick Up Your Adventurer’s Guide

Get ready for some fun and games right from the moment you enter the station! Unscramble letters to solve HERSHEY’S KISSES puzzles, piece together the steps for creating a REESE’S Peanut Butter Cup, navigate mazes, and race to find items hidden throughout the station.

Grab Your Phone & Scan the QR Codes

From your guide and throughout the station, unlock so many more great fun facts about each candy world! Do you know the most popular flavor of JOLLY RANCHER candy? The length of the world record-breaking TWIZZLERS Twist? What the KIT KAT® wafer was originally called? The trivia goes on…

Make Like a Kid and Enjoy the Ride

When the train departs the station and you take your seat in our immersive theatre, we promise you’ll feel right inside the adventure, literally surrounded by floor-to-ceiling screens and special effects that touch all your senses. There’s SO MUCH wonder to take in, you won’t know where to look first!

Keep Your Hands Free

As promised, your engineer, Ginny, will need your help when the train arrives at forks in the track. That’s right, it’s time to choose between those worlds you’ve been learning about! Press the buttons at your seat and watch as the votes tally. Will your fellow passengers agree? Spoiler alert: there’s really no wrong decision, in our humble opinion. 😉

Take a Few Memories Along Home

During your journey, you’ve helped collect candy to bring back to the station, so it wouldn’t be fair if we kept it all! As you disembark, we promise to share some with you in memory of your adventure.

Be Sure to Get Your Tickets in Advance

We’d hate for you to miss all this fun because the train was full! Book your tickets online early, as they’ll likely be sold out by the time you arrive. Reserving online also means a bigger savings, as do three Adventure Bundles that combine our other attractions. Check out all the options.

We look forward to welcoming you aboard the Hersheyland Express this summer!
