Great place to get chocolate fresh

We make it mandatory stop when we are in harrisburg 2 times a year. Great service and lots to do at a reasonable price.

Stopped in during a long weekend to the Harrisburg area for the farm show. Had a great time just doing the free tour and picking up some treats in the store. Wasn't busy at all on a January weekend. Our 23 month old really liked the tour also

This place is so cool! My recommendation is that you go on the chocolate ride first. Then go shopping.

We spent two nights at the Hotel Hershey, and went to the park the first night and the second day. That was enough park time for us so on the third day we opted to visit Chocolate World, thinking it would be less expensive than another day in the park. WRONG! Even with the coupon for the movie from the... More

We toured hershey last night. The tour is mostly about the town and founder. A little disappointed about how little was said about the candy process. The gift shop had very little in it.

Hershey World is a great stop if you are already there for the park, it's not really a destination in itself. Basically it's a gift shop mixed with a food court. The Hershey Museum ride is there as well. It's free and the line moves fast, so I recommend it, but don't expect too much. It's like a (very) poor... More

Went with 2 kids. They loved the 4D movies, make your own chocolate (though it is not exactly make your own) , tasting chocolate and other fun activities. The line for the free ride was so long, we decided not to get on it. I feel like they should maybe give some kind of priority pass if you buy package... More

We have been to Hershey Chocolate World several times threw the years in late October/ early November as our daughters always have the band championships right next door. We usually ride the free chocolate tour and find every year things change slightly which makes it more enjoyable. Enjoy some time shopping for our favorite chocolates and go over to the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed Hershey Park but were disappointed with the Hershey Story. The lines were outrageous, and the tour consisted of sitting in a car as you went through reproductions of the manufacturing process. Then they try to get you to spend $30 on a book containing photos of you they take while you wait in line. Not worth it... More

Tuesday, January, no traffic, no crowds, no waiting = perfect day. Chocolates I've never seen offered in a store.
