  • This was a nice stop during a conference in Hershey. The tour is fun and free! The chocolate is a little overpriced but they have some really cute gift options.  more »

  • This place was great. The entire family had a wonderful time. Chocolate World was AMAZING! The amusement rides were a perfect fit for the children we had with us. The water park was great too despite the fact our littlest one wanted a little bit bigger slide to swoosh down. The zoo was perfect too with just the right number of animals for the kids to enjoy. Loved the place and will return!!
  • Great! So much fun! We did all 4 activities in one day. It's exhausting, but a lot of fun! I was a bit disappointed that there wasn't more chocolate to taste at the chocolate tasting, but overall a very nice experience. The 4D movie was interactive which made it so much more interesting! The trolley ride was nice. The kids loved making their own chocolate. A very busy and fun day!
  • Customer service and cashiers were a lot friendlier here. Enjoyed the free chocolate tour A LOT. Best thing there. Prices on candy weren’t too bad, considering you’re at a amusement park (kind of). We did the make your own chocolate bar. I enjoyed my chocolate a lot, but not worth it for 25 bucks. They tried, but it wasn’t very interactive, a lot of digital interaction though.
  • We just got home from our trip. Fun place. Lots to do and everyone is very friendly. Get there at 9am during a weekday and you won't have any lines and have the whole place to yourself. As the day goes on it gets very busy and it's hard to get to everything without wasting time. Candy can be purchased by the box and there are a ton of souvenirs. There are also a lot of clothes to choose from. Thing's are priced as you would expect for a vacation/tourist attraction. Candy by the case is cheaper but shirts and such are pricey. Worth the trip, regardless of that.
  • Had a good time there. The lines at times were long but they kept it moving. The prices were a little high but reasonable. All in all good tour to take. Tip though if you want to book something other then the tour do it early the sell out quick.
