  • Aussie travellers expecting not much. WOW!!! How wrong were we. This place is awesome. Did the trolley tour ( very entertaining) chocolate testing and made our own bars. No kids with us either. The sh...  more »
  • I was a little disappointed. I should have looked better on the website. The tour is a Disneyfied tour through a story of Hershey and how they make chocolate. It's not a real factory, just a made up o...  more »

  • This place is magical experience watching a 4D movie,making your own chocolate bar with rapper,on the trolley singing and going back in time around Hershey and going to look at Henry Hershey's house,also don't eat chocolate but tastings other chocolates and how they were made.Go out to eat at the food court(very delicious meals).Souvenirs and new chocolate you can buy.It's worth driving to,I'm Eden Trevino and i live in San Antonio,Texas and stopped down to Maryland and drove to Pennsylvania to see Hershey Chocolate World. THINGS YOU MIGHT WANT TO BRING IN CHOCOLATE WORLD: a bag or something to carrie stuff in(back pack or a reusable bag) reusable bottles of water and for your bag has to be insulated bag to keep your chocolate cold and put some ice cubes in a sealed bag and put it on the bottom in case you don't eat your chocolate right away. Other then that go have fun and keep lots of memories!🍫📷🍴
  • We came for the day and had a blast. There's just so much to do. More than the variety and fun though, we went to the deli to get some food for my niece, who has a medical condition that makes her completely intolerant to gluten. We told the server and he went out of his way to make sure to change gloves and handled her food with extra care, checked that their applesauce was good for her, and even gave us an extra applesauce and juice for her and included it in the meal price. The staff here are wonderful, helpful, and considerate, and I'm very impressed and pleased. 10/10 will be coming back with the rest of my niblings in the future!
  • Awesome experience! All kinds of Hershey brand things for sale from shirts to mugs to candy and so on. The free chocolate making tour from cocoa bean to chocolate bar is fun and informative... complete with a sweet treat at the end. Large food court with hot sandwiches, soups, cold cuts, pizza and even ice cream! A little pricey but that's to be expected. Most of the sandwiches, pizza and wraps are $9 before sides and drink. They do have children's $5 meals for ages 6 and under. Other neat activities here too but not free like the chocolate tour. Overall a great family, church, or school group activity
  • Lots of fun with the kids. We did it all. Kids had fun with the 4D movie and make your own chocolate bar. As an adult I'd skip both and go on the Hershey historical trolley ride and the tasting experience. Tasting experience was great, even though I didn't like some of the chocolates.
  • It was a great tour with so much history. Try to get a personal tour if you can of other things that Hershey has to offer. If possible go in the morning but try not to go right before the theme park closes.
