This isn't the chocolate factory I went to as a child (45 years ago!), but fun to see how the candy is made and the process from the bean to the finished product. It amazes me that it isn't a real factory and it smells like chocolate. The parking is free if you are just going to Chocolate World and... More

A great place to stop if you want to get out of the rain or out of the heat for a bit. Visiting on a Tuesday/Wednesday there were no large crowds or lines to ride the chocolate ride. It is laid out nicely so it does not seem to crowded. Had some chocolate specials. Liked the prices being a bit... More

Kudos to the folks at Chocolate World who worked on the new layout. Now, one doesn't feel so cramped and confused when entering the lobby. Chocolate World offers some fun activities for the whole family, most requiring a separate fee but all fun and informative. Whether you "create your own chocolate bar"; become a factory worker on the Kiss assembly... More

Our family spent a full day just in Chocolate World, and never once thought about going next door to Hersheypark. All ages had a good time, and everyone wants to visit another time. The only letdown was the food court-- not a value at all, and something we will actively avoid in the future.

This is a place to buy all sorts of Hershey's products before or after you go into the park for the rides. They have a cute little ride that tells you how they make the chocolate. There's a food court too. It was fun.

A free ride showing the chocolate experience with 2 pieces of Hershey minins at the end, and then a walk thru a large gift shop filled with chocolate. The children got to make "chocolate pizzas" whihc was a cute and relatively reasonable activity.

We stopped in Hershey on a road trip and had a limited amount of time to spend. We skipped the Amusement Park and went to the Chocolate World. We were a party of 9 - 4 adults and 5 children ages 7 - 15 and arrived around 10:30am. Before our arrival, we consulted the Hershey trip planner, but we purchased... More

Had a great time in Hershey, but if you go to Chocolate World, GO EARLY, gets extremely busy in the afternoon. We did the trolley tour, which was a lot of fun, the 4d movie and the create your own candy bar. If you have the extra 15 bucks I highly recommend making your own candy bar, especially if you...

There is a lot to buy here but you can get it cheaper other places, although there are specialty items there that are great. The tour is about a 20 min free ride about the chocolate. We all loved it. I would highly recommend the make your own candy bar !!!!! So awesome. We'd do it again! Just a suggestion...... More
