  • We went to Hershey's Chocolate World and we liked it. It had good parking. It had a ride and you can get a free piece of candy when it is finished. We had a lot of fun. We ate food and got drinks and the food was good. The candy was good. The staff were nice and friendly. We will probably go back again when we go back to Pennsylvania.

  • Exactly what you’d expect from the ‘sweetest place on earth.’ Although we didn’t make it to the Park due to half the rides being shut down for the weather, the Hershey world experience was still worth the time and effort. The free tour was better than expected. The chocolate tasting felt a bit rushed but was still very enjoyable. The 4D mystery movie is obviously designed more for the kids than adults. The only thing I’d say we regret not getting around to was the Build Your Own chocolate bar. I’ve heard it’s one of the more memorable activities—so definitely include that. I say buy the Adventure 1 package and add on a trolley ride and your in for a fun day!
  • Had been to this place 3 times so far with friends and relatives, kids loved this place and got sugar high . Make your own chocolate, trolley ride, 4d movie, chocolate tasting tickets can be bought as packages and there is a free chocolate making ride as well. Definitely a good and memorable experience. It's crowded on the weekends. They also have Hershey's amusement park with lot of water rides and a stadium for music concert. 2 days trip to this place could be well spent if planned properly.
  • Highly recommend you make the trip to this PA state gem. There was so much to do. The tour was so neat. The 3D movie was entertaining. And the food options inside were plenty. It was a wonderful experience, especially for the kids. Best milkshake I've ever had. I can't say enough good things about this attraction.
