Always take the Chocolate tour, there's a present at the end. My sister has trouble with stairs and the staff were excellent in helping her get to -and into - the Chocolate Tour. The food is very tasty. The kids loved the Hershey's Kiss character that accompanied the fresh cookies. Parking is free for the first 3hours of your visit.... More

Hershey's Chocolate World is always a wonderful place to visit. We've take our children and now our grandchildren and it's even a great place to visit with just my husband. We never leave the area without a visit to Chocolate World where we enjoy the Hershey ride and never leave without a large bag of Hershey candy.

We enjoyed this very much. I hadn't been in about 20 years. It is a free tour however there is a $15 parking fee. The store was great with anything you can think of. Very very crowded. I mean shoulder to shoulder traffic. I guess it's summer crowd. Kids enjoyed it as well as mom and dad.

After reading some reviews, I thought this was going to be a quick trip. Not at all,we spent 3 hours there and could've spent another 1 or 2 if we made our own chocolate bar or chocolate tasting. 3 hours was plenty with 3 young children ranging 2 through 10. We did stop at the cafe for an epic Hershey... More

A must do when in Hershey. The Chocolate World shopping area has received a makeover and you still get a free piece of candy and at end of the free ride. Chocolate World has free admission and you can get up to 3 hours of free parking when visiting Chocolate World.

Despite the large amount of visitors, we had an enjoyable time here. We had eight people in our party, so we weren't able to do the things that cost money. The Chocolate Tour is free, though, and even our youngest liked that! At the end, you receive a piece of Hershey's chocolate. The day we went they were handing out... More

Hershey's Chocolate World is a microcosm of a theme park. There are several things to do there including a free ride-through 'tour' of how chocolate is made. This is a 10-12 minute ride that goes about the pace of Journey Into Imagination ride at Epcot. It's informative, has a few cute parts to entertain the young ones, and at the... More

If you love chocolate/candy this is a must on your stop! The desserts are amazing! It gives you a history of how Hershey came to be the iconic name that it is. The gift shop is amazing! There is a little ride for free that gives you a free mini candy bar at the end. It's a must on a... More
