What will this new ride be?

With the tie-in with Reese’s, this looks to be a renovation of Reese’s Xtreme Cup Challenge, which has been in the park since the 2006 season. This is further supported by a service mark which was filed in June for Reese’s Cupfusion, which is intended to be for Entertainment in the nature of an amusement park ride. The drawing of the potential service mark can be seen below. Click here to see a pdf of the service mark application.

The “word” cupfusion was a hashtag that was used back in 2016 when they were promoting the Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups stuffed with Reese’s Pieces. The Reese’s webpage promoting the product is currently titled REESE’S Pieces Cupfusion.

The advertising from the website feels a bit reminiscent to the chocolate vs peanut butter theming on Reese’s Xtreme Cup Challenge.
