“Interesting but too crowded”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

The free ride that talks about chocolate was really fun and cute. I can't believe how many tourists were there.

“For all Chocolate lovers! It is a must to visit”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

It was nice and free to go to this, although if you take small kids, you may spend a fortune in the gift shop. You can design your own chocolate bar, which I believe was around 15.00! The tour was nice, and they walk you through it from start to finish. We drove through Hershey on our way home, so this is a nice free attraction to stop in. Hershey Park is right there, and so is the museum, which was free and they also have a gift shop. The whole town smells like chocolate. Great town as well!

“Not as Sweet as it Used to Be”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

We visited on a Sunday afternoon in July and the place was a zoo! It was so crowded you could barely navigate in the building. We had hoped to create our own chocolate bars but it was sold out until much later in the day. We were able to walk onto the chocolate ride but were disappointed in the free sample provided at the end. We had hoped for a Hershey chocolate sample but ended up with some sort of chocolate covered fruit. The shopping area and dining areas were so crowded we decided to just cut our visit short.

“Hershey's Chocoate World”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

Parking was $35 a day which is more than people pay to park for the day at most major ciites. The people at Hershey Park tell you to park there but my advice is don't.

“Don't waste your energy”
Reviewed August 7, 2014

This place has turned into "we want to steal your money". They remodeled to enlarge areas to charge you. Hershey should be ashamed. They keep remodeling the ride to worsen it. This used to be a quaint place to go but now- it's garbage. Singing cows talking about how chocolate all starts with the milk. What a joke. These are not happy cows. Get raw milk from a family farm and you will find out what true real milk is. I was actually offended by the end of the ride. Showcasing broadway and Elvis? This is not kid friendly at all.
