The main reason we came to Chocolate World was for my mother. She loves chocolate and had always wanted to visit Hersey. It was crowded since it was the first weekend of Candy Cane Lane and there was a band competition going on. Parking was free which was great. They remodeled the 'ride' through the making progress. My aunt loved... More

I'm 56 and this is the first time at chocolate world. The tour with the talking cows and the way chocolate is made was fun and informative. The store itself was amazing.

We like to stop in when we are in the area and get fresh chocolate. Lots of activities for kids and kids at heart. You can take in a chocolate show, make your own candy bar on a simulated factory, do chocolate tasting tours, take a trolley ride thru Hershey, all of course for a charge. Take lots of money...

We were in Lancaster County for a family get-away over Thanksgiving weekend. My husband and I had visited here with my dad over 10 years ago. Even during the summer, it was not as crowded as it was this time around and the place came across as a big tourist trap with admission fees for everything but the 10 minute... More

Hershey’s Chocolate World……… A great place to go, but at the right time. Parking is free, but only for 3 hours. The ticket has a time list on the backside, and the price you would pay. Get there early, at 9 a.m. like we did on Saturday. Chocolate World is free to get in, and you really do not have... More

We were in the area and thought it would be a fun trip to visit the Hershey's Chocolate World. It was a nice visit including the cheesey chocolate experience ride. It was a nice time and I am glad we did it but it is something that does not need to be done more than once especially with Hershey Worlds... More

We went here after the park. It was so crowded, we could barely move. The line to ride the chocolate tour was to long first us to wait. We did buy candy, but there is a very small assortment of sugar free.

Very nice family oriented thing to do! Prices are very high but worth it of its a once a year family trip! I would recommend the trolley tour ride and the 4d show! The actual hershey inside tour is free which is nice! The friendliness and courtesy of the staff was very good! My kids loved it and we will... More

A great place to visit and enjoy some history. The chocolate doesn't hurt also. Was able to find some thing not available where we live. A great community.
