My husband and I are frequent visitors to Amish Country PA and the trip to Hershey's Chocolate World is so close, we can always find the time to make a trip over. Entrance to Chocolate World is free, though many of the attractions within charge a fee. The tour ride is free, though the promised "treat" at the end is... More

The "make-your-own chocolate bar" was fantastic. The kids designed their own bar, watched it being made on the conveyor belt, then designed their own packaging on the computer. Very cool experience for 11 and 13 year olds. The actual ride was disappointing to me. I wanted more detailed information about the chocolate making process and the actual Hershey company but...

I visited Hershey Park with two children, aged 6 and 9. We stayed at the Hershey Lodge and went to the park that same day. The hotel staff were very nice as was the shuttle staff. The park was awesome. Clean, clean, clean and well organized. The staff were efficient and pleasant. The zoo, no extra charge, was very nice... More

I can't say enough about this little attraction! It's a family favorite for all ages. We enjoy the museum aspect, holding the traditions of Hershey's chocolate. The ride is fun and the shopping is great too!

The ride was cute! It smelled delicious inside-couldn't wait to stock up on chocolate goodies. Very friendly employees. Looking forward to returning.

This is a nice ride that lasts about 15 minutes. It gives you a very general over view of Hershey and how they make chocolate.

My wife and I have been here before a couple years ago and enjoyed it. Since then they remodeled and changed the layout, which appears more focused on the gift shop now. It probably increases their sales so I understand from their perspective. One big complaint though, and the only reason for not giving the 5th star is the make... More

Must do for young and old Chocolate lovers. Be warned though, that you may not want to eat any for a few days after all your senses get an overdose of this yummy brown during your day at the Hershey's Chocolate World. Give yourself the whole day, especially if with young kids..as its a lot to walk between tours, see,... More

More for kids. Liked the factory tour better than everything else. Make your own chocolate was informative as well as interesting. However, the other events were more for Kids. You get to shop various Hershey's products there as well.

There were a lot more people than I expected since it is winter. It was fully staffed and everyone was very friendly and most helpful. We saw the 4D movie which was very much enjoyed by all the girls (5-7) as well as by us moms. I do have to say that one of the girls got a bit frightened... More
