  • Fun place to visit with the family. There is a huge gift shop as well as an area to make your own candy. The ride which shows how the chocolate is made is Worth the wait, which there usually is a wait. While in line there are facts about the Hershey company & an overlook area that you can see over the whole gift shop and a quick stop to take a picture which is available for purchase after the ride. The ride is free but anything additional has a fee. The ride itself is very entertaining & light hearted but also educational. I'd recommend Hershey chocolate world to anyone looking for a fun, free activity.
  • Fun time for the kids! Free to get into but many of the activities cost. Parking is simple and if you arrive early no lines in the spring anyway. The food court has lots of options and lots of goodies for the kids to look at and buy. Every activity ends with a bit of chocolate. Kids favorite was the free one. They call it the "cow ride" not sure what it's called but it's a ride through the chocolate making process and has singing cows which made the trip!
  • This was so much more than what I was expecting, as there are so many things to do. I was also impressed with how clean and well kept it was. We had a blast during our visit here to see the Easter Bunny. There are so many different activities and tours, we will definitely be going back to explore more of what Hersheypark has to offer. Anyone visiting Hershey, PA should stop here for some fun.
  • I’ve been three times and have enjoyed every visit. There’s a free ride and they give you a sample of chocolate at the end. There’s lots of merchandise to choose from and unique gifts. There are several other experiences you can choose from that cost extra, but some are worth doing. Everyone should visit Chocolate World at least once!
  • Great experience that will keep you busy for hours. Try to get their early so you have enough time to look at everything. It was fun to make your own chocolate that you could take home. A little pricey though.
