“Choctastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012 via mobile

Visted on the 6th of December using the Thursday 2 for 1 deal. Great value £40 Gor the 6 of us (ranging from 1year old to 70 year old) most amazing place ever,kept all age groups entertained. My personal favourite was the gorilla from the advert playing drums. We had booked online for 1320hrs and spent at least 2hours in the exhibition. Word of advice,go early and go to the essence show,quite funny but the tub of hot melted choc was great. Lots of freebie chocolate just wish I had more time.

“dont listen to the bad reviews!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

three friends and i travelled 3 hours to visit cadburys world (all aged 19 - 22) and we were not dissapointed! It was very busy, as it was a weekend but the free chocolate, tour, seeing the factory and even the train ride aimed at young children was worth it! If you dont like crowds. Give it a chance, any chocoholic will adore this place!

“BRILLIANT DAY OUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 3, 2012

Visited Cadbury World on 2nd December and would highly recommend it for the christmas experience if you have children (for the next few weekends up til Xmas). We arrived, had coffee while children played on the African Adventure area, went straight into the pantomine (great fun) and then to visit Father Christmas in his grotto (you will have to queue). Next into the exhibition which was amazing, the highlight being the ride on the cadabra. Lots of free chocolate, great atmosphere and friendly, cheerful staff all dressed in christmas outfits. My grandchildren said everything was awesome and could not stop talking about it when they got home. You do need to book and they give you a time slot for the exhibition, we were told to allow 1.5 hours to do everything else but unfortunately we run out of time and did not have time to eat or visit the Essence or the Bourneville Experience, BUT GOOD REASON TO VISIT AGAIN.

“A let down”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2012 via mobile

Have to phone and book, get time slot e.t.c fair enough. Then you get there pay your hard earned money and start going round. Then you find out that the factory bit is closed so you cant go to see the very bit you expect. They said it was closed for cleaning, but if they had told you that at reception yiu could decide if you still want to go in. Rather that though they take your cash and say nothing. Shame on you cadbury world.
