We were very disappointed in the Chocolate World. It was a big Hershey's store with a few "rides" that you had to pay for. The chocolate-making process ride seemed to think it was "It's a Small, Small World," but it didn't do it very well, and it was nothing like actually touring the plant, which you used to be able...

A sales venue for chocolate--quite the freshest you'll ever have, to be fair, and every product line that Hershey currently owns. Lots of old timer favorites, like Zero bars, available. Extremely noisy--but fun for kids--and if you take a moment, you can admire the indoor terrarium which contains all sorts of tropical trees, some of which are 25 feet tall,... More

Hershey's chocolate world is and has always been a great attraction to visit. See the film, ride through the model factory, and you will receive a special bonus at the end of your tour. Make sure you stop in the gift shop to purchase your goodies, and also the food court for wonderful cookies, and many other products for your... More

After reading all the reviews here I thought this would be a fun stop along the way on our road trip. Fun it was NOT. It was way overcrowded. The candy was insanely overpriced but we bought a few novelties that aren't always available. Food is average to below average. Bathroom facilities were disgusting and unsanitary. We did the chocolate... More

fun to visit, a good place to buy chocolate. Prices are higher here than buying at your local CVS. Maybe it was fresher than off premises. Kids may enjoy it, adults not so much.

We stopped here for a couple of hours to kill some time, and we had a very nice time. I thought it would be bigger and more to do.. We went on the tour and make your own chocolate which my son loved, but I did feel it was a little over priced, no onder there was no line -... More

I went with friends for "Springtime in the Park." The tickets were half the price of the regular season tickets (water park was closed) so that was a plus. All of the other attractions were open including Zoo America, which my son loved. We did the Breakfast with Characters and watched the 4D movie. The food was average and the... More

I will say that I think there are more things for kids here than for adults, but it is a good place to stop (especially for the ridiculous amount of chocolate that you can acquire). If nothing else, you can get tickets for the Hershey Trolley here and it's definitely worth doing. There are pieces and parts of Hershey's history... More

Entire family had a blast! It's very delicious and educational. We learned a lot about what a great philanthropist Milton Hershey was. At first, I was thrown off about paying about $15 to make my own candy bar. But, our group wanted to do several of the activities. So after paying for a package, we had some really neat activities...
