Our family LOVED Hershey. We took the trolly while it was snowing, and they dress in time pieces and put on a little drama while showing the estate with the history of Mr. Hershey. Such a nice time!

The factory tour and shopping was nice, but the trolley tour with the actors, singing, bells, and Santa showing up with gifts and a nice list is an awesome surprise for the kids!!! Well worth the ticket! And hear about Mr Hershey, he was a very good man!

They have every type of chocolate that you could want, well every candy for that matter. They have a free tour ride that explains how chocolate is made, which is fun the first time. They then give you a free candy that they are trying to market and it is usually something not really out on the shelves yet. There... More

This is the retail section of Hershey. Any and all chocolate that the company makes can be found here, if it is still available. This is also the area to arrange the trolley tour, take a free tour of the chocolate making process, as well as the retail areas. I arranged for the chocolate tasting 'seminar' and it was also...

My family and I came here on a cold November day. While we were originally planning on going into the park, we decided to just go into Chocolate World instead due to the weather. You will definitely spend some money here, but there is a lot to do. The chocolate ride is free and still as fun as ever! There... More

We visited here in Sept. 2015 - great weather -- we took a tour around Hershey on a bus -- we learned a lot about Hershey that we did not know. We toured the Hershey candy factory - got to make our own Hershey bar and they put it in a tin box with our name on a paper band... More

This attraction is great because parking is free and the chocolate world tour is free. It also offers some pay activities and lots of chocolate shopping but really not necessary to spend money. The whole family enjoyed before going to the park. It also opens earlier than the park so it is a nice way to kill some time before... More

What is there not to like about a place full of chocolate. Enjoyed the ride and the music. Hard not to get up in the store with all the Christmas treats. Had a great time. On another note had a food court with for real food with a great variety.

We enjoyed the chocolate tour (free) & making our own candy bar ($15.95). I wish we would've tried the taste testing experience although after an employee explained what it was, it didn't sound like what I was expecting so we passed. Also wish we would've done the historical trolley tour. Very large gift shop with everything imaginable. Disappointed though that... More

Spent a few hours here on our way to NYC for thanksgiving. Enjoyed making our own chocolate bars. The boys each made their own design of sugar and wrappings. What fun! Then we watched the 4D movie and "earned" a fun size Hershey bar. Finally we finished up with the free tour which was a ride and a kit Kat.... More
