We loved our visit to Chocolate World. The free tour was great and very educational. Loved the photo opportunity and purchased the photo book when our tour was completed. We purchased Reese's Peanut butter cups, Reese's Peanut butter, and Reese's chocolate peanut butter. You have not had good Reese's until you eat these fresh from the factory. The peanut butter...

This free exhibit hasn't changed much over the years. You take a long winding walk to get to the ride and to get in your cart to learn about making chocolate and the harvesting of cocoa. Just sit back and enjoy. It is not especially long but it is educational. Something to do when you come to the town or... More

Toured Chocolate World with another couple during a long weekend visit to Hershey - our first. Great place to take children to learn the Hershey story and load up on everything Hershey!

So there is a free option for a tour- reasonable- but if you really want to get the whole feeling, it ain't cheap. We went with 3 kids and two adults for the movie4d which was ok and the chocolate tasting which was kinda a waste of money and the chocolate bar making which was fun. We didn't do the... More

My husband and I took our grandson on a Thursday. Great time to go. Walked right in. Maybe 6 people in the place. More employees then patrons. Had taken my own children years ago. Remember walking thru and seeing real people making the candy. So was disappointed in the fact that it is all animated now. But my grandson who... More

We had a good visit here, but we planned ahead and probably visited somewhat off season. It can be incredibly crowded here during peak times. Most of the event tickets can be purchased and researched online. If you want to minimize waiting in lines, plan ahead and choose your events and times in advance. The chocolate tasting is a great...

It has been a while since I visited and I was excited to return. We were unable to do a lot because of time, but we did do the Chocolate World ride two times. We were excited because it was new. However, we all agreed that we liked the old ride better. We have plans to go back next week... More

DD and DS love going to this place every time we are in town. They love the indoor ride - history of Hersey. They also love making the gigantic personalized chocolate bars that they never get to finish:)

We did the free history tour thing with our kids, the line was so incredibly long on a Sunday afternoon! It was moving but we waited over 40 minutes! The kids did enjoy the ride, afterward the gift shop was packed and of course overpriced. I would recommend going on an off day to avoid the crowds.
