Chocolate and people everywhere!

The factory tour was a quick free ride. But we liked it and found it fun and entertaining. I do get motion sickness but did have any on this ride.

We enjoyed our Saturday visit - line was long but constantly moving forward! :) We didn't have time to try the other non-free activities, but my 12 & 18 year olds thought the ride through the "factory" was cute and informative, and we enjoyed the gift shop. The ride looks a little dated, so it has 4 stars, but I... More

We came here not knowing what to expect and enjoyed our trip. We opted for the 4 part package that included: 4D 'Movie' Hershey experience- while some of the effects were pretty cool, this is mostly for families with young kids. Its looked like the younger ones REALLY enjoyed it though. Historical Tour bus- There are two different tours for... More

Special needs daughter loves the free factory ride & has a tantrum if she can't go around a few times, especially to see the singing mooving cows. She also likes the 4D movie - get a CVS coupon for AM, buy 1 get 1 free. Food can be pricey. Trolley ok.

We've been to Hershey's Chocolate World many times over the years. Usually we just hit the Chocolate World tour ride before going into the park. This time we did the Create Your Own Candy Bar experience. It's a little pricey at $15.95 per person but you can book online and save $1.50 each person which is what we did. We... More

I was very disappointed with my visit, it is basically a large chocolate store. The factory is not a factory but a ride with lots of pictures and props. I don't know how anyone can buy chocolate on a 90 degree day and get it home without melting!

I was traveling to Gettysburg and decided to have a stop over here to visit "Hershey, PA." and gald I did. I was able to tour this facility and loved the tour. I came here with the children and would do it again if in the area. There is so much information on cocoa beans!

So much fun! Was crowded but moved quickly. Great for kids and adults. Love that the tour was free and explained the process in a way little ones could understand.
