Before we went into the park, we entered the chocolate world. It's been years since I have been in there. They have changed it since the last time I was there. Our family really enjoyed it and would go back again.

Our entire family has gone through the Hershey Chocolate World ride a dozen times (every time we visit). It is not only hilarious and enjoyable each time- after all the running, packing, swimming, and rolling its a fun calm moment to just think about the History of the Hershey world...

We went during the week and it was busy but not as crazy as it was after 630pm, so try to go early and during the week if you can, but it is a must see. It was my first time and I really enjoyed it, its a huge store and a free, cute ride to tell you a little... More

The trolley ride is a must! Highlight of the trip! Gives you a tour of the whole town, after which you can decide where you want to go.

Chocolate World is one giant store. There were so many things to buy, including an amazing selection of Hershey chocolate stuff. We found the building to be very loud. And a tip. If you bring a stroller into the building, be very careful. While we were there, it was crowded and many children were running (heh, kind of understandable -... More

Very memorable stop with our children aged 6-11. Get there early in the morning as the attractions book up and things get crowded. Tour is a free seated ride. It was okay and they gave us a chocolate treat at the end. Chocolate tasting was fun and extremely educational. We learned how to taste chocolate and got 5 different samples-... More

And, like all theme parks, they take your picture and ask you to buy one. Upside is you get a free piece of candy at the end. Anything... More

Our family of 4 spent about 4 hours here...most of the time was spent "making our own candy bar" because they were having breakdowns. This cast a poor light on the whole event because standing around was brutal. We did end up with some of the best chocolate I have ever had. The factory tour (much like everything) had a... More
