I've visited Hershey's Chocolate world 3 times already. twice in the winter and one time this summer. The free chocolate ride is really nice and fun, and at the end you get a treat of candy/chocolate. I went on the city tour (Milton's story) twice during winter and it was VERY interesting, and i highly recommend it, you get free... More

The "make your own chocolate experience was a bit different that we imagined, but it was so nice anyway! The souvenir is high quality. The shop is huge and has lots of interesting things. Some of the activities are for kids, nevertheless we had fun participating. The chocolate tasting is nice and gives the opportunity to know other brands of... More

This time we only took the tour, did the 4D movie and created our own candy bars. The tour is always a nice way to get out of the heat and off your feet while learning a little something. The 4D movie is kind of cute and the 3D images are the best and the 4th dimention is an experience... More

Lots of over sugared children running around, and parents in distress. Line for tickets was horrid, and wait time to utilized your tickets way too long!

You can buy any Hershey's treat you like as well as t-shirts, stuffed animals and other gifts for folks back home. The onsite attractions include a free 10 minute "tour" of a chocolate factory, a chocolate tasting experience, make your own chocolate bar and watch it go down an assembly line, and a new 4D experience to solve a whodunit...

Our bus tour group arrived just before opening on Sunday morning. As a result, there was no wait to get onto the free ride. There are lots of retail and restaurant options. I regret I was able to learn more about the founders and community onsite.

I loved all of the attractions we did including The 4D movie, Chocolate tasting. the tour, and the Create your own chocolate bar. The chocolate tasting was fun although they seemed a bit rushed and we couldn't finish the little bit of chocolate we were given. The create your own Chocolate bar was a very fun experience however I wish... More

Anyone that has been to choc world knows that there is a free ride and at the end you get candy. Well not this time. Not only did they change the way you get to the ride, but they gave us choc covered fruit. We were disappointed bc we were counting on the candy. Also, you can't read the history... More

Our only opportunity to visit was on Saturday. I've been to Choc World before and it's a fun visit during off-peak times. Don't even bother going in the middle of the day on a weekend in the summer. The free ride wait is soo long and there are people everywhere. If you want candy you can get it cheaper at... More
