Hersheypark happiness is expected to become even happier by 2020.

The entertainment complex recently proposed an expansion of 23 acres to the west of the existing park, and, according to a report on PennLive.com this week and a plan submitted in June by Hershey Entertainment & Resorts to the Derry Township Planning Commission, some details are starting to emerge.

Though specifics are limited, the maps obtained by PennLive indicate at least one new ride might be in the works.

The park, meanwhile, has already announced something else is coming in 2019, with the official announcement slated for next month.

The new land is closer to Chocolate World and is adjacent to the Skyrush roller coaster, the maps reveal, according to PennLive.
