Hershey Chocolate World can get expensive if you do everything they offer but you can do just the free tour and get your chocolate and everyone is happy...but the Trolley tour is definitely worth the money! It's informational, very entertaining and don't forget the chocolate :)

This is a perfect place for everyone to hang out and have fun. You can go with kids, friends, family and you'l find something or other that will interest you. The best part of it was "Make your own candy" show, where you can chose your chocolate, add toppings and actually see how they make your customized chocolate. You also... More

I enjoyed Hershey's Chocolate World. It is the Hershey Company visitor's center, and is huge and free. The building is meant to be like the old factory. The GIANT chocolate store takes up quite a lot of space there, and there are so many things I had no idea Hershey made. It is a really cool sky lighted garden in... More

We only did the free part of this (the factory tour - which was a disney style explanation of how chocolate is made). There are LOTS of unique hershey gift ideas in here. Lots of candy. It's a free attraction (if you don't do the movie or other pay attractions), and parking is free if you leave within a couple... More

It is a very fun experience whether you are 1 or 100 years old. There is a ton to do, you can do chocolate tasting, make things, ride in little cars where you go thorugh a replica of the factory and learn the history of Hershey. It's a really neat experience and tons to do!

As a transplant to Hershey, I've been to chocolate world several times. The first time was somewhat magical, every time following it is what it is- a giant candy shop with over priced merchandise and overpriced attractions. All that said, if you're a visitor, the free "chocolate factory tour"/ride thing is very cute. I was under the impression it would... More

I've been a fan of Hershey chocolate for over 60 yrs. While visiting Gettysburg we decided to drive over to Hershey. I was so excited! Short lived, sad to say. I wanted to see the thick dark brown chocolate transformed into yummy morsels. Instead I found gift shops and opportunities to buy tickets to " enhance" your chocolate experience. Then... More

We live 45 minutes away and this is a place my children love to go! It doesn't take very long to go through, so can be incorporated in with other attractions in and around Hershey.

The place looks like a giant indoor warehouse with Hershey products, food court, and few organized activities. It's a cool hangout place for kids, couples and friends. The free chocolate ride tour is a fun way to learn how Hershey chocolates are made. The 4D show and trolley tour of the town are great. Won't recommend the chocolate tasting adventure... More

Tour was interesting. Best part was buying chocolate in the shop after the tour. Noticed the difference between the chocolate we purchased at the tour shop and the chocolate we get in our home state of Georgia. The bars were so fresh that when we opened one to eat, the bar bent down with freshness, unlike when we buy chocolate... More
