Fun Place - great ride

The facility itself was huge! However, they had wheelchairs available for my 91 year old mother-in-law, so the size of the place was doable. We did the historic Trolley ride which was very informative. The conductor couldn't have been better. Plus, we got to sample lots of chocolate along the way. We also did a chocolate tasting. My 13 year... More

Sure, they have a lot of candy bars to sell, but the experience was great. Be sure to do the trolley ride, it is not to be missed - informative and fun!

We were disappointed in the Hershey's Chocolate World attraction. It was very crowded and not very intuitive. There are activities in which kids and adults can involve themselves, but they are not worth the price of admission. Rows and rows and every candy bar in every size imaginable makes up most of the floor space. The ride through a tunnel... More

The grandkids (11 and 9) really liked it. It is free to go in tons of candy every imaginable gift you can imagine. The ride that goes through is like it's a small world in Disney and lots of fun. They have food court and other tours available you pay for but we did not have time to do. A... More

For someone who loves sweets like me the place was heaven!!! Chocolate ride was a bit cheesy but the chocolate sample at the end was worth it! The food was to die for and you could spend a half a day sampling everything!

It was such a great day! They have so many features at Chocolate World and this is the best place to get Hershey souvineers! My kids loved the Chocolate Factory ride and creating their own chocolate bar. The chocolate tasting was fun too! I highly recommend taking the trolley ride. It was very entertaining for my 7 and 4 year... More

Stopped by for a quick lunch and to enjoy the free tour. Prices on the chocolate items are more expensive and available all over, such as Walmart. However, there are some unique items which would make perfect gifts. It was so crowded the day we visited....Memorial Day Weekend. But we were able to enjoy lunch and get a table to... More

We enjoyed our first visit to "Chocolate World"! The free factory tour ride was cute and informative. We also paid to do the chocolate tasting and the trolley tour, which we enjoyed! It was a good way to see the town and learn some Hershey history, and the singing and the actors on board the trolley were a lot of... More

We went to Chocolate World after arriving in town. Parking is free for under 3 hours, and close parking was available. We did not visit Hershey Park, only Chocolate World. We did the "create your own" chocolate bar, it was a fun experience. Not quite as hands on as I anticipated, but certainly worth the $15 price. They do a... More

A must when visiting the park. Why? Because it's FREE and it's air-conditioned !!! What better two reasons than those ??? But really if you want to know the story of Hershey Chocolate so have come to the right place. It can be a nice break from a full day at the Park. You get out of the heat, sit... More
