PepsiCo BBLz Logo

Get fizzy with it! On July 4, Hersheypark happily debuted the first permanent location of BBLz™, where mixologists – a.k.a.

BBLz in Hersheypark

On July 4, 2017, a new food vending location opened up in Hersheypark. BBLz (a stylized version of the word bubbles), as explained in an article on Sweet Stores From @HersheyPA (link above), was constructed as an addition to the Overlook Arcade / Restaurant, a substantial change to the building which replaced the old penny arcade pavilion in 1990.

This building is located in Kissing Tower Hill, and BBLz is on the side of the building facing Hershey Triple Tower, which opened earlier in 2017. Hersheypark began teasing the addition of BBLz in April 2017.

BBLz is a brand which was trademarked by PepsiCo on May 30, 2017. The concept was developed by PepsiCo, and is named Pepsi Fizz. Fizz debuted at the 6th Annual World Maker Faire New York, September 26-27, 2015.

BBLz is the first permanent installation of the Pepsi Fizz product. On July 17, 2017, PepsiCo issued a press release about BBLz.

BBLz in Shanghai Disneyland

A second BBLz location was found in Shanghai Disneyland, in China. It’s unclear if it was open prior to Hersheypark’s BBLz opening on July 4. However, this location is smaller than Hersheypark’s and has a simpler menu with only 4 options.

One option is themed after one of the Tron rides in Shanghai Disneyland (Tron Lightcycle Power Run). That said, the options are somewhat similar to some of what is offered at Hersheypark’s BBLz, although they use 7UP instead of Mist Twst.

I have a wide variety of interests, from sports to politics, music to Star Trek. I write about the history of amusement parks on my website, The Amusement Parkives, which I founded in 2016.
