When we did the tour of chocolate world my husband didnt know it was a ride. He was pleasantly surprised. Our little boys 2 and 4 loved it. Yes it was crowded and there was no flow of traffic, people just walking in every direction. But, the ride is free and you get candy! Kit kat this time. The hot... More

Living so close to Hershey, (38 miles), I get to go up a lot. This place plays a major role in chocolate town. Once a mere chocolate tour, food court, and gift shop, chocolate world has grown into an attraction of its own right. With the 4D show, chocolate tasting, chocolate tour, and make your own candy bar, chocolate world... More

We visited the Saturday before Christmas so we assumed that it would be crowded. There was plenty of parking and it was free for the first three hours. We only visited the "factory" part of the complex. There are a few activities/tours. You can make your own candy bar, see a 3D movie, and go on the tram car tour... More

Enjoyed being around so much chocolate! Simple ride takes you through the making of chocolate. Young kids like it. Because it was fall, the outside was decorated for harvest time which made it a lot of fun for the 3-year old who was with us.

I may have loved it more than the kids! It was a candy lovers paradise! There is a ride, a build your own candy bar area, and tons of candy. You could smell the chocolate freshness

We love visiting Hershey World before doing the sunset preview of Hershey Park...it is absolutely adorable and really gets you in the Hershey mood! You get a free Hershey candy at the end of every ride, and there is never a long line. The ride empties out into the big gift shop (of course), but at least there are a... More
