The best part of chocolate world is the ride that teaches you about the chocolate making process and the sample at the end. Be aware that the prices are high. My step daughter wanted a medium sized stuffed Hershey character in the park and I told her to wait until we went to chocolate world so she did not have... More

My husband and I stopped in here today. I haven't been here in over 20 years so I was looking forward to it. I have to say I was a little disappointed. There are renovations going on so things were a little chaotic in there. We aren't sure why but the make your own chocolate bar attraction was closed- like... More

Ride was interesting but drowned out by loud music. Way too much emphasis on sales! Crowded, overpriced.

We recently visited during Spring Break (DH, DD 13 & DD 11). I would not say this would take an entire day to do- so don't plan on a full day here. There really is only 4 things to do here- ride the tram through the "made up" manufacturing line that tells the story of how chocolate bars are made... More

It's in phases of expansion and crowded with people (weekend holiday), but the lines move quickly. The ride is free and explains how chocolate is made. Plenty of other things to do here too.

We felt like it was the ikea of chocolate products being sold. Most of the stuff you can get in stores, some of it was large items like a 5 lb bar of chocolate or specific color kisses. There is a food court inside as well, we didn't visit any of them. If you are going to get a gift... More

Understaffed for the amount of visitors. I think it is overpriced. Admission is technically free but all of the activities cost money except for the tour. Fun for a few hours but not worth what you pay.

We recently made a visit to Hershey's Chocolate World (it was my second time there, the last being several years ago.) We went on the Spring in the Park weekend (April 18-20th.) It was a madhouse. The renovations are distracting, and they let so many people in that it felt uncomfortably crowded as soon as you entered the door (and... More

Our family had fun at Chocolate World. There were a lot of different things to do but it can get expensive. We saw the 4D movie, made our own chocolate bars and took the trolley tour. To me the best part was the trolley tour. The kids liked making the candy bar. Gift shop was expensive. Hershey Park had some... More

This was our second time to Chocolate world. It will be our last. The building was BEYOND crowded. You could not walk, shop or eat without crowds of people in your face or elbows in your sides. The lines for the free ride were extremely long. We wanted to purchase tickets for the create your own candy bar and the... More
