Behind the IP: Reese’s Cupfusion – CITIZEN CANE

Project Type

Prototypical interactive gaming dark ride with original IP


Hersheypark, Hershey, PA, USA


Personality: Merry Mischief-Maker

Candy Type: Candy Cane

In Reese’s Cupfusion, Hersheypark guests, young and old, are recruited to protect the Reese’s Central factory from the League of Misfit Candy, a bungling group of rogue sweets bent on world domination. Citizen Cane, the League’s more-naughty-than-nice Christmas representative, holds an uncharitable grudge against Reese’s Peanut Butter Trees for sharing her seasonal turf. 

From the Writer

“Since the League are the self-appointed nemeses of Reese’s and Reese’s makes several holiday varieties of their peanut-butter cups, it seemed only fitting to include a few holiday counterparts among our gang of candy antagonists. Citizen Cane is our answer for Christmas--although she’s hardly the model ambassador for the Yuletide spirit. She does have a certain flair, though, with her bow and scarf. I imagine Citizen Cane might harbor some secret dream of playing the lead in a Christmas stage spectacular.”
