The Hershey's Chocolate World was fun to walk through. We were able to pick up t-shirts, chocolate, etc. for ourselves and family back home.

“Could have been more that didn't cost a bomb!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013 via mobile

I had a great time looking around Hershey's Chocolate world but have to agree with many of the comments. As a British visitor I had high expectations as the Cadbury Factory in Birmingham, UK is amazing and huge! You tour the factory and get free samples. Unfortunately, it felt like here at Hershey's there was just a lot of queing, a ride and then a big shop (not a problem as such, just expected more! Also, most of the good stuff to do involved an extra cost such as the make your own Hershey bar ($15) or the chocolate tasting adventure which was $10. I'd say ok for a quick trip but you cannot spend a day here unless you're willing to spend extra!

“Fun Chocolate Tour Ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

As a chocoholic, I love this ride! The entertaining train ride gives you information on everything about chocolates and Hersheys. You will definitely crave for chocolates because of the sweet, chocolate smell throughout the ride. The store is a chocoholic's dream come true. Lots of chocolates and related merchandise.
